Wireless Services

Wi-Fi usage continues to grow by more than 60% each year, 40% of employees bring their own unsupported devices into the enterprise (BYOD), smartphones now make up 56% of all Wi-Fi devices, and video will grow to consume 66% of all wireless traffic.

Clearly, delivering mission-critical Wi-Fi is important to supporting communications across your business.

Wi-Fi is a shared resource that must support a broadband experience for a broad range of unique and often competing devices and applications, including VoWLAN, video, location, and cellular offloading for smartphones. IT organizations continue to face many Wi-Fi challenges, including different signal strength requirements for different devices, device density and application diversity, and legacy protocols minimizing performance of new protocols.  

Managing these challenges is difficult, but striking the right balance between coverage and capacity is key to any mission-critical WLAN deployment. Unfortunately, for traditional WLAN solutions, coverage and capacity have a complicated interdependent relationship and there are limits in how much one can be improved without negatively impacting the other.

Introducing InnerWirelessHD3

Black Box Network Services enables mission-critical WLAN with InnerWirelessHD3, an advanced deployment methodology that enables independent control over WLAN coverage and capacity to enable mission-critical Wi-Fi deployments.  

Leveraging industry standard, enterprise-grade access points (APs), collocated in a cabinetized solution, InnerWirelessHD3 can enable multiple, independent WLANs to coexist in high-traffic areas or across your facility. 

With InnerWirelessHD3:

  • AP locations are engineered for optimal RF coverage.
  • Multiple WLANs and channel layering are used to provide capacity.
  • Network performance is managed by grouping like applications and devices.

Support for High-Density WLAN

The WLAN landscape is continuing to change. Consumer-grade devices such as smartphones are being offloaded from wireless service provider networks to the enterprise WLAN, applications such as VoWLAN and information systems require mission-critical performance, and medical-grade devices require the ultimate in Wi-Fi performance.  

InnerWirelessHD3 is ready. Through consistent coverage with necessary signal levels, the ability to support dense devices with maximum application throughput, and optimized greenfield performance for new protocols, InnerWirelessHD3 enables all key WLAN services at both 2.4MHz and 5GHz for high-density deployments.
