Let’s Get Real About Wi-Fi Performance
Access points might be touted as having transmission speeds of “1.3 Gbps” – which sounds great. Yet, when you plug in that access point and run traffic through it, the resulting speed rarely lives up to expectations.
Why is there such a difference in expectations vs reality? It’s due to a blend of marketing claims and the complexities in transmitting data wirelessly. Time to clear the air!
Join our “Wi-Fi speeds” deep dive to learn about the difference between max bandwidth and usable throughput.
Bring your questions and join our Cloud Networking Professionals to discuss why max bandwidth does NOT equal usable throughput. During this session we will:
- Discuss the overhead involved in transmitting network data via Wi-Fi.
- Explore factors affecting usable throughput: client mix, distance from access point, interference, etc.
- Highlight bandwidth optimization strategies
Qualified attendees will also receive a free 802.11ac AP and switch to experience a unified wired and wireless management solution that harnesses the power of the cloud.
