BYOD (Bring Your Own Device)

BYOD is changing the network. Gartner predicts that by 2017, half of employers will require employees to supply their own device for work purposes

In the past few years the Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) movement has produced a distinct set of challenges for workplace wireless networks, inspiring a range of adaptive approaches intended to support connectivity and productivity for all user devices. Now, IT departments are the latest frontline. The goal? Optimise network support for student BYOD in a way that is simple and secure.,

The primary challenge that faces many IT administrators is many-fold: First, they have to devise a plan to effectively onboard the tens, hundreds or thousands of devices which employees collectively bring in. Secondly to deploy effective solutions to handle the endless stream of requests to the help desk that often result from this situation, where a constant wave of new devices are attempting to access the network.

Thirdly, to ensure the actual network is scalable and resilient - ensuring Wi-Fi is a core part of infrastructure, rather than simply an add-on. Finally, ensure that the data is secure - whether it's corporate information ending up on the phone through persona or business applications, or personal information that's being shared but needs to be protected.
