Building the Wi-Fi Onramp to the Internet of Things
Track: Mobility

  • Who: Matthew Gast, director of advanced technology, Aerohive Networks; Abby Strong, director of product marketing, Aerohive Networks
  • What: The current evolution of Wi-Fi is driven by the rising need to enable machine-to-machine communication. These new devices place completely different demands on the network, and will vastly outnumber users as they enable building automation, physical security, and many forms of wearable technology. To cope with all these new devices, IT departments need to build wireless networks supporting higher density and more differentiated security. This speaking session will discuss current and future technology developments to build robust networks that support IoT deployments.
  • When: Thursday, October 2, 1:30 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. ET

Using 802.11ac to Build Next-Generation Wireless LANs
Track: Mobility

  • Who: Matthew Gast, director of advanced technology, Aerohive Networks
  • What: 802.11ac applies a variety of techniques to increase speed, and these new protocol features require network administrators and architects to use different techniques to build next-generation networks. When building a network based on 802.11ac, architects must be aware of the differences from previous-generation networks based on 802.11n and 802.11a/b/g. As part of the continuing rollout of 802.11ac, network deployments must adapt to the changing nature of the protocol and administrators need to consider how the additional features for speed and efficiency affect the underlying architecture of the network.
  • When: Friday, October 3, 10:15 a.m. – 11:15 a.m. ET
  • Where: Jacob Javits Convention Center, New York, NY in Room E14, Level 1
