Our brand new Outdoor Wireless show just launched today -- you can register and watch it here.. but these are the shownotes for your reference..and they make more sense if you watch the show!
Seamless, Scalable, Capable, Unique applications
Mobility is about more than just wireless of course…but even among our wireless coverage, we need to get outside. Outdoor wireless comes with its own unique set of challenges…they fall into a lot of the same categories of course: Interference, Propagation, Noise, to name a few but in general:
Everything becomes magnified outdoors.
Each category can be sliced up in a few areas -- rugged design, unique combinations of physical and network security.
So, a focus on education is in order as are some new toys to play with -- most notably the Aironet 1550 Series OUTDOOR Access Point.
The resiliency and determination of America’s sense of justice was thrust into a spirit of rejoicing on Sunday evening May 1, 2011, when President Barack Obama addressed the world, confirming Osama bin Laden’s demise in Pakistan. While watching the breaking TV news coverage, I began to share that sense of accomplishment and joy, less for the act of neutralizing the thought leader and chief architect of 9/11 and other atrocities against Americans, and more for the fortitude and resolve demonstrated by the U.S. commander-in-chief, our military forces, and intelligence agencies. I found myself thinking of what this type of public resolve implies for the future state of our Manufacturing economy in the U.S., whose resurgence is essential to the country’s defenses, global leadership, and the health and prosperity of our citizens, along with those of other democratic nations.
President Obama’s determination coming into office in January 2009 to recommit U.S. resources to bring justice to bin Laden, and the U.S. intelligence and military’s subsequent success bodes well as I consider his commitment to U.S. manufacturing competitiveness, infrastructure build-out and job creation articulated during the President’s January 2011 State of the Union address. During the last several quarters, I have had the privilege to present on behalf of Cisco to the Office of the President as part of the Smart Manufacturing Leadership Coalition (SMLC), a broad cross section of manufacturers, technology suppliers, manufacturing consortia, government laboratories and research universities across industry segments pulling together to recommend programs to revitalize U.S. manufacturing.
