The number of devices connecting to the network isn't going to slow down, which means the enterprise network has to keep up, and developments in Wi-Fi are central to this effort.

Is your network infrastructure ready for the next stage of wireless LAN (WLAN) that's mobile, freely accessible and dynamic? If not, it's time to get up to date on the latest developments and what's expected in the near future. This handbook walks you through what you should be thinking about, with a major focus on Wi-Fi aware technology and Wave 2 of the 802.11ac Wi-Fi standard. We also discuss developments including gigabit wireless, White Space Wi-Fi and the latest Wi-Fi Alliance certification programs.
