The Evolution of Wi-Fi 6: Part 5

In part four of this series, we explored a range of Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) features, including target wake time (TWT), 1024-QAM and Long OFDM Signal. In this blog post, we’ll take a closer look at the benefits of Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) for new and legacy devices, as well as the expected feature set arriving in Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) Wave 1 and Wave 2.

Wi-Fi 6

Wi-Fi 6: Current and legacy devices

Although there are relatively few Wi-Fi 6 devices (802.11ax) on the market today (90{56382b05406e22b986d72489f434f32729ef758e2e5cbf8f56cdc0c3bdfc886a} of the devices of are still Wi-Fi 5), it is important to note that the industry faced a similar situation when Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) was first introduced. From our perspective, there are several reasons to begin moving to Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) as soon as possible.

Firstly, a Wi-Fi 6 access point (AP) can serve new Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) devices, along with legacy Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) and Wi-Fi 4 (802.11n) devices. Secondly, a number of manufacturers are already selling Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) clients. Thirdly, Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ac) and legacy clients can co-exist just like Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) and Wi-Fi 4 (802.11n). Last, but certainly not least, both Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) and non-Wi-Fi 6 clients benefit from Wi-Fi 6 technologies.

For example, Wi-Fi 6 clients are more efficient, thereby freeing up more spectrum for Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) devices. This is perhaps analogous to a carpool lane, in which the first two lanes are for Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) devices. More specifically, let’s say 50{56382b05406e22b986d72489f434f32729ef758e2e5cbf8f56cdc0c3bdfc886a} of the devices are Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) and 50{56382b05406e22b986d72489f434f32729ef758e2e5cbf8f56cdc0c3bdfc886a} are Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax). We put all the Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) devices in the carpool lane, allowing them to operate more efficiently. Concurrently, the remaining Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) clients benefit because we took half the cars from all the lanes – which frees up contention for the Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) devices.

This provides higher throughput and performance for
networks, with beacon intervals occurring every 100 milliseconds. So, how does
this work? Well, the AP ‘says’ that it will use …

New Features in Microsoft Teams – Shifts and More

Microsoft Teams

As technology advances, organizations find they can plan more, direct more and execute more because they have more relevant and timely information, thus allowing them to better decisions. As part of the trend of providing more effective and efficient ways to relay information, Microsoft has expanded multiple features within their Microsoft Teams app. Features that promise to connect the right people with the right information, at just the right time.

Shifts

Not every group of employees works together in a close environment. In many cases, staff members are spread out across the local landscape or perhaps even the globe, as in the case of flight crew members. Regardless of the physical location of their employees, shift coordinators need an intelligent mechanism that allows them to plan and coordinate work schedules, which in turn enables seamless delivery of services and/or products to their customer base. With the Teams app Shift tool, managers can easily create, keep track of and update an entire work schedule, thus ensuring that even employees disbursed all over the globe, know where they need to be and when they need to be there.

Updating Made Easy

Especially when employees work out in the field, they need features that will allow them to connect to and update other members of the group who made not be physically nearby. For mobile users, Microsoft’s Team app has a location sharing feature, allowing managers to keep tabs on their employees, as well as allowing employees to verify they are where they say they are. Workers can easily snap and upload photos of work-related issues and share with others, thereby garnering additional insight for problem-solving. They can also immediately text or share their comments by voice, or they can record audio or video messages for viewing at a later date.

Integrate With Current Systems

Microsoft understands that moving an entire organization over to new software takes time. That’s why they created a Graph API that enables organizations to seamlessly integrate their current workforce management system with the new features of their Teams …

New e-book links poor network access security to data breach risk

Ruckus has just published a new e-book titled “Seven Network Access Security Risks—and How They Can Lead to a Data Breach.” It focuses on faulty network access security as a risk area that can lead to data compromise. As the title implies, this e-book outlines seven distinct risk areas that IT organizations should be aware of, especially when it comes to providing connectivity for BYOD and guest users.

As detailed in a previous Ruckus blog, “What’s wrong with PSKs and MAC authentication for BYOD?”, default methods of network onboarding and authentication have serious security flaws that can leave you open to data compromise. These security holes get less attention that more high-profile threats like ransomware, but the dangers are still very real. Sometimes it’s the attack surface that you aren’t thinking about that attackers seek to exploit.   

Linking IT security risk
areas to the potential for a data breach

Sometimes the link between a threat vector and the risk of data
compromise is obvious. Keylogging malware tracks a user’s every keystroke,
including when they type in their username and password for cloud-based
business applications. Email phishing attacks compromise credit card numbers or
other sensitive data by tricking users into entering them into a website that
spoofs a legitimate site. Misconfigured cloud storage can leave sensitive data
just hanging out there on the web for attackers to steal. All of those are
obvious ways that attackers can get at your data.

Network access security is a category where the linkages may
be less obvious. The point of the new e-book is to help clarify the connection
between this risk area and a potential breach. It’s a highly accessible way to
increase your knowledge of this often-overlooked area of the IT security domain—a
five-minute read covering an underestimated attack surface in modern IT
environments. This document can help you keep other stakeholders in your
organization informed about the risks as well, so feel free to pass it along. We
should emphasize that no registration is required to …

Pose Detection comparison : WrnchAI vs OpenPose

A New Age for Public Safety Video Surveillance

Video
surveillance is one of the most powerful tools law enforcement has in its
arsenal. It’s used to protect citizens and investigators, collect evidence, and
prevent crime. Unfortunately, law enforcement officials don’t always have the
lead time they need to set up equipment. While wireless IP video cameras help
facilitate rapid deployment, there’s still the legacy network infrastructure to
contend with. For that, law enforcement agencies need “pop-up” security enabled
by a solution that is cost-effective and easily deployed, virtually anywhere.

Video Survellance

The
development of IP-based video cameras gave law enforcement officials more
flexibility in terms of camera placement, but the network infrastructure
remained a barrier to achieving cost effective, rapid deployment. Wireless
connectivity over cellular networks like 4G LTE is simply too expensive. Plus,
it’s not unusual for service providers to throttle bandwidth, resulting in
performance issues. Other wireless solutions use a low bit rate at short range,
recording one frame every five seconds. While this may be suitable for
situational awareness, it doesn’t meet requirements for investigative cases
requiring real-time data.

Time
is of the essence during a criminal investigation. To benefit from video
surveillance in these scenarios, law enforcement agencies must be able to
quickly deploy video surveillance when and where it’s needed—without filing for
permits, installing fiber infrastructure, or incurring exorbitant fees. This
can be achieved with Ruckus Video Mesh Distribution.

Ruckus Video Mesh Distribution is an easily deployable surveillance network that delivers high bandwidth and full frame rate with low latency. Ruckus SmartMesh provides backhaul over a WiFi network, enabling law enforcement agencies to achieve visibility virtually anywhere there’s power—including locations where running copper or Fiber cable is unfeasible. The self-forming, self-healing, and self-optimizing technology makes mesh networking easy to deploy and manage.

Video Mesh Distribution…

  • Lowers installation and operating costs by reducing the need for Ethernet cabling and RF planning.
  • Delivers consistent bandwidth. Traffic is never throttled as it is with cellular providers.
  • Automates configuration, enabling Smart Mesh Networking WLANs to be deployed and operational in half the time of conventional WLANs.
  • Works

The World Of Data

Whether big or small, data is undoubtedly a big part of our lives. And in this highly technologically-savvy world, data has become digital and proliferates the world both online and offline. With the growing number of data being shared on a daily basis, the issue on storage is a problem we always face especially if the storage capacity of your device can’t keep up with your data use. Gone were the days when devices have so little storage capacity, storage is much bigger now and you can always buy a secondary storage device if your device does not have enough storage space.

The use of flash drives and external hard drives have become the norm now. People usually purchase them for additional storage, so they can clear their device and add more files that will eventually be transferred to a secondary storage much later. Most tech users are always on the lookout for the best secondary storage at a reasonable price because it can free them of their constant worries of running out of storage space. Most external hard drives (EHDs) have bigger storage space now and they are generally reasonably priced too. They are fairly easy to use, so you won’t have any difficulty transferring your files from one device to the other.

The Seagate 8TB USB 3.0 desktop external hard drive is down to $129.99 on Amazon. This hard drive has been selling for around $150 since a drop in late September. Before that, it regularly sold for as much as $180. Today’s deal is the best price we’ve ever seen.

Seagate’s drive is meant to be as easy to use as possible. It has plug-and-play compatibility, so you can just immediately start using it, as well as drag-and-drop utility so it’s easy to get your data where you want it. It transfers at USB 3.0 speeds and is backwards compatible with USB 2.0. You’ll need to reformat it to get it to work with Mac. Users give it 4.6 stars based on 99 reviews.
