RF Spectrum Policy: Future-Proof Wireless Investment Through Better Compliance
Source: Cisco Systems
Radio Frequency (RF) spectrum is an overlooked but critical resource. It is through the spectrum between 800 MHz and 5.9 GHz that an organization will connect laptops and PDAs to the network, talk on cellular phones, cordless phones, and headsets. Unless properly managed, many of these technologies will crowd the spectrum and negatively impact WLAN services. Because the spectrum is a shared resource, the need to monitor, manage, and secure it is imperative to optimal wireless reliability and performance. This paper focuses on the process of defining a spectrum management policy.
