Ipad network considerations
iPad Network Considerations

  • Network traffic types must be considered

  • Other network users can’t have degraded access

  • Critical traffic may need to be prioritized

  • iPads and mobile devices must receive specific treatment from the network

  • Device convenience and usability must be maintained

Ipad apps are here for the enterprise
iPad apps are here for the Enterprise

  • Traditional communication vendors entering the mobile apps fray

  • Example: Avaya Flare is a VoIP, Unified Communications and Video capable client for the iPad

  • Just one of many new applications targeting communications in the enterprise on the iPad

  • Ease of use dramatically increases user communication and network use

  • - Traffic is leaving the wired network and will expose an underperforming WLAN infrastructures

iPad Network Considerations

  • Your wireless infrastructure must be ready

  • 802.11n for high-density deployment

  • Adequate coverage of areas likely to see the iPad

  • Separate Guest networks isolated from local network

  • Automatic management of clients and access point radio settings:

    • assigning clients to the right 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz channel

    • power of access point and client power saving settings

    • channel selection

    • client roaming

    • and mesh routing

  • The iPad has no wired access – there is no other way!
