WiFi Overcast: Enabling True Mobility for Realtime Applications in the Enterprise

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Enterprises are increasingly deploying Wireless LANs to provide mobile access to users in corporate offices. However, existing enterprise WLANs are far from being truly mobile. In particular, they do not adequately support continuous mobility, where users access the network on-the-go. Furthermore, WLANs that do provide continuous mobility support require client modifications, making them hard to deploy in practice. In addition, with the growing interest in real-time applications such as voice and video, users are increasingly placing additional (QoS) demands on the network, which for inadequately designed WLANs, does not scale to large numbers of users.
