Everyone always wants more bandwidth and better network performance. Wi-Fi connectivity is crucial to enterprise communications in 2022, but how your enterprise uses Wi-Fi is almost certainly changing. If many of your employees are going to remain remote, these workers need home networks that aren’t just an afterthought to enterprise IT. And if you’re embarked on large-scale return-to-office, the RF engineering required in those offices may need to change as the physical layout changes to accommodate new styles of work. In both cases, you—and your end users—will need to follow basic best practices for laying out and maintaining your Wi-Fi infrastructure. This session will help you understand how to get a grasp on where your users’ Wi-Fi experience may be falling short—and how to improve it.

Takeaways:

  • How do new office layouts—optimized for “hoteling” and other hybrid work elements—impact Wi-Fi performance, and how do you adjust for the changes that may be taking place?
  • How do you help home-based workers get the best possible Wi-Fi performance out of their residential system?
  • What are the most common errors found in legacy office deployments? What about in home-based Wi-Fi?
  • What tools are available to help IT understand the level of Wi-Fi performance, whether in the office or for home-based workers?
