Wireless is a very generic term that may refer to numerous forms of non-wired transmission, including AM and FM radio, TV, cellphones, portable phones and wireless LANs. Various techniques are used to provide wireless transmission, including infrared line of sight, cellular, microwave, satellite, packet radio and spread spectrum.

A wireless network is a platform for enabling enterprise-wide access to an organization's applications and data. Wireless infrastructure allows users to take the office with them wherever they go. The wireless network provides employees and guest workers with untethered access to voice, video, data and applications regardless of their physical location. With the influx of mobile devices and increase in Wi-Fi connections, organizations are already starting to see a paradigm shift to "wireless by default" and "wired by exception." Watch this video to see how our solution architects upgraded the Shawnee Mission School District's aging network infrastructure.
The stadium has long been a communal gathering place. The excitement of a live event bonds fans and teams together, and technology can enhance that visceral connection as well as expand the in-stadium experience to the outside world.

As mobile computing becomes an increasingly important technology, the need for robust, reliable wireless networks is growing. In addition to enterprise-issued devices, users are bringing their own tablets and smartphones and demanding access to IT resources. Organizations need a wireless infrastructure that can support these demands.
Our research shows that in addition to mobile demands, aging hardware is driving many organizations' wireless upgrade plans. Download this white paper to read more about the research.
A new Cisco Systems infrastructure provides Spencer-East Brookfield Regional School District with a robust, scalable foundation for future technology initiatives. Read this case study to find out how the district could effectively demonstrate the value that a smart IT investment could provide to its educational mission.
IT departments must contend with an array of devices, operating systems and cellular carriers as well as new security threats. Even if IT departments can get a handle on the complex mobility landscape, the technology is so fluid that the picture is constantly changing. That means the IT staff has to devote time to learning about, procuring, deploying and supporting an array of devices. Busy IT departments now have another option for addressing these challenges: a monthly subscription package that provides a customizable web-based portal to automate mobile device procurement, expense management and support.
Smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices have become embedded in enterprise processes, thanks to the consumerization of IT and a new generation of workers raised
on mobile technologies. Consumer devices and bring-yourown-device (BYOD) programs are driving a new wave of business process innovation, changing the way customers, employees and partners interact with organizations and with each other. In fact, mobile devices and applications are catching up with — and in many cases surpassing — PCs in the quality and functionality of their applications.
Many organizations are seeing clear and quantifiable benefits from the deployment of mobile technologies that provide access to data and applications any time, anywhere. These benefits often include increased profits, a more efficient and productive workforce, and enhanced customer service.
Many, if not most, organizations today are grappling with the challenge of a growing mobile technology environment. Mobility can deliver many key benefits: improved collaboration among workers, enhanced customer service, easier access to corporate information from many locations and increased productivity—to name a few.
But the proliferation of mobile devices and applications
also comes with its share of challenges, perhaps none more important than ensuring the security of the devices themselves as well as the data they contain and the enterprise networks they access.
Mobile devices are ubiquitous. The wide variety of functions
they provide on the go — everything from making phone
calls to checking email to literally millions of applications —
has created widespread demand around the globe for this
technology. With the right tools, an organization can extend
the workplace far beyond its own physical walls. And
employees can be active at any time within the 24-hour
cycle; whenever inspiration strikes, a smartphone or tablet
can quickly harness their productivity.
Ethernet fills a number of roles in the enterprise – far more than you might initially expect. This overview helps you understand the many ways in which the networking protocol is used in business, where it makes the most impact, and the effect CIOs should expect from upcoming innovations.
Hotels and the travelers who frequent them bear little resemblance to their counterparts from just a few years ago. The explosion of new technologies has allowed hotels to change the way they operate and has made the average traveler more techsavvy and connected than ever.
Mobile devices are driving this innovation. Not only have mobile devices changed how people interact with each other, they also have changed how people expect businesses to engage with them. According to SmartBrief, 40 percent of hotel guests carry three or more mobile devices. And with global mobile data traffic growing 30 percent every year according to Cisco, there will be an estimated 4.9 billion mobile users by 2018. When these mobile users travel, will they choose your hotel? Only if you have the mobile amenities they demand.
In this white paper, we will review three mobile trends that every hotelier should address, and we’ll offer recommendations on how to best address them.
The restaurant and bar industry is highly competitive, and many owners of these establishments struggle every day just to stay in business. In fact, approximately 40 restaurants and bars go out of business each day in the U.S. According to celebrity chef, restaurateur, and entrepreneur Robert Irvine, “Part of the problem is that they don’t have the systems and processes in place to track the key aspects of their business – not only their costs and their revenue, but what items sell the best (and by how much), what items are most profitable, who are the most productive employees, and so on.”
The use of technology tools and the Internet – driven by a high-speed network connection that supports owners, staff and guests – can be the key to evolving a restaurant or bar from a struggling survivor to a thriving, successful business. Download this white paper to learn more.
New research findings, new technologies, and the evermore urgent needs for speed and cost-efficiency are converging to drive a revolution in medicine. Supporting this convergence are high-speed secure telecommunications networks, enabling unprecedented teamwork among institutions, researchers, practitioners and patients to create a new paradigm: telemedicine, the exchange of medical information via electronic communications among dispersed facilities and patients to improve patient health. Download this white paper to learn more about telemedicine.
The digitization of data has empowered both healthcare providers and patients to improve how, when and where healthcare is administered, giving patients greater control over their personal health and well-being.
The key to success lies in the ability to get the right information to the right people at the right time. And a crucial enabler of improved communications is the ability to transfer data across like and disparate systems through mobile technology. This was the topic at a recent focus group Comcast Business held at HIMSS14 that included healthcare IT professionals from six leading healthcare providers. The participants shared the following insights on how advancements in data mobility can engage the entire healthcare ecosystem and help improve patient outcomes.
