Put your business-critical applications first
Enterprise wireless local area networks (WLANs) continue to grow at a rapid pace, driven by the explosion of Wi-Fi enabled devices and applications. It is imperative that wireless LAN networks handle this rapid growth and meet the requirements that the myriad of applications place on the infrastructure.
As a market-leader in collaborative UC and Video applications, Avaya understands the challenge that applications, especially real time applications, pose. We are also aware that at the end of the day, users care about one thing - the user experience.
The Avaya Wireless LAN 9100 Series delivers a wireless network that supports the way you really work. It delivers a network that allows you to take full advantage of the applications that matter to you, anywhere in your organization - while helping ensure a high quality user experience.
The Application Explosion
Millions of Wi-Fi enabled smartphones, tablets, and laptops are activated daily, many of which make their way onto corporate networks. This has led to a significant growth in user-driven, non-managed applications on these networks. Smartphone users on average have over 40 apps on their phones ranging from Facebook to email. These applications are increasingly reaching into the cloud for software updates, data backups, and software as a service (SaaS) usage models.
The result is increasingly congested networks with unpredictable usage patterns, headaches monitoring ever-growing Internet uplink usage, and security concerns from all the unknown data traversing the network. The challenge for IT is that the information they need to profile and manage network usage (i.e., the actual applications that users are running on the network) is typically invisible to them.
Avaya WLAN 9100 Application Control addresses this challenge by providing visibility and control over more than 1,300 of the most popular business and recreational applications. It allows IT administrators to control applications running over the wireless network by applying application-specific policies for managing performance and security. In addition, application control operates directly at the network edge, resulting in a scalable and resilient network that ultimately produces a better user experience.
