In December 2012, we introduced Application Visibility Control(AVC) for Wireless, with AireOS 7.4 which arms IT administrators with visibility into the applications running in their wireless network and the ability to prioritize the mission-critical ones.
In this blog, I would like to share how SuccessEHS, an Alabama based company focused on delivering Electronic Health Record(EHR) and Practice Management solutions has successfully deployed AVC to improve their wireless experience. I’ll also throw in a special sneak peek at some additional features we’re adding to AVC that you can expect in release 7.5.
SuccessEHS houses some 200-300 employees in Birmingham Alabama. The wireless deployment consisted of Cisco Aironet 2600 series Access Points with industry-leading 3 spatial streams performance and CleanAir functionality managed by the Cisco 2500 Series Wireless Controller. At any point of time, there could be hundreds of clients simultaneously connected to the wireless network. Most employees may be simultaneously engaged in running usual office applications such as email, web-based tools and EHR applications. Read More »
[Webinar] 802.11ac in Higher Education | Wednesday July 24 at 3pm PST < REGISTER
It’s no secret that mobile devices are playing a larger part in today’s businesses. With the fast pace of mobility adoption by consumers, network usage has started to outrun the infrastructure of most enterprises’ mobile networks. Enterprise IT managers are struggling to keep up with mobility’s effects on workplace productivity and requirements.
Among the growing trends that weigh heavily on the minds of most network IT professionals is bring your own device (BYOD). The growth of bandwidth-intensive applications, like video streaming, and the user expectations of always-on network and application performance also place heavy demand on organizational infrastructure.
802.11ac is the next generation of Wi-Fi, designed to give enterprises the tools to meet the demands of BYOD, high-bandwidth applications, and the always-on connected user. This Wednesday we will be hosting a workshop to discuss the benefits of 802.11ac, and how to optimize it for high density and high bandwidth to benefit higher education. Students, typically early adopters of wireless technology, usually bring 802.11ac in the form of the latest laptop, smartphone, and tablet that support this new technology. Read More »

Students bounding into schools touting the latest device is creating big problem for K-12 IT departments. How can schools support BYOD initiatives while securing these mobile devices and the student information embedded within them if IT staff numbers aren’t growing?
In his latest blog, K-12 BYOD. Secure Students, Determine Internet Access, and Yet Provide Awesome Network Performance?, Cisco’s Rahul Chohan discusses how Identity Services Engine policy deployment as a part of Cisco BYOD Solutions for K12 Education helps simplify mobile device security streamlines the IT security processes required to deploy BYOD. Rahul’s blog covers how ISE helps protect minors, ensure performance, and simplify IT over the wired and wireless infrastructure. How exactly can it do this? You’ll have to read his blog to find out.

The explosion in business mobility is transforming our companies in profound—and sometimes challenging—ways. One of the most vexing issues is security.
Recently, I came across a Wharton article predicting that by 2015, more Americans will access the Internet through mobile devices than PCs. From open data to an increase in government-accessed information, this sweeping trend raises questions about the true security of mobile networks and devices. But how can an organization support the infusion of wireless devices into employees’ lives without opening the door to heightened security risks? Read More »

Mobility extends beyond devices. Yet, having the right devices and choice of devices allows us to work the way we’d like. In fact, Cisco is one of the world’s largest enterprise users of Apple products. Employees have purchased 33,000 iPhones and 16,000 iPads as part of Cisco’s BYOD program, and almost half of our regular employees are using Macs.
Check out Sheila’s blog “Partnering with Apple on BYOD and Great User Experience” where she discusses the Apple Tech Talk and Cisco’s mobile and collaboration strategy.
