Wiring for Wireless
This presentation focuses on emerging WiFi technology and standards. The IEEE 802.11ac Wireless network standard advances mobile networking to unprecedented capabilities. WiFi is ubiquitous in practically every vertical, and it more important than ever to plan for wireless in the cabling infrastructure.
This presentation is geared to the cabling, wireless and networking professional who needs an update on emerging standards and trends. The presentation will describe the advances of 802.11ac Wave 1 and Wave 2, the push for an “NBASE-T” standard for supporting greater than 1 Gig cabling to the WiFi access points, and Power over Ethernet to support this wireless technology. The presentation will also provide insight into how to physically install the WiFi APs for optimum performance, physical security, aesthetics, and code compliance in different verticals such as healthcare and public schools.
