The Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access, known simply as WiMAX, is a technology that is often overlooked as an option for wireless connectivity. In this article we’ll shed some light on this often-misunderstood technology and how it can be used to benefit your business in various applications.

Wi-Fi 6, also known as 802.11ax, was released in 2019. It has only now begun to see mainstream adoption as the go-to Wi-Fi standard for Wi-Fi manufacturers and businesses alike. Although it may be more expensive, Wi-Fi 6 access points deliver key advantages over Wi-Fi 5. 801.11ax performs up to 4x better in denser environments than its 802.11ac (Wi-Fi 5) counterpart. Wi-Fi 6 is also designed to better manage multiple types of Wi-Fi devices that are simultaneously connecting to an access point. Lastly, according to chip manufactures, Wi-Fi 6 delivers up to 3x faster performance.
There are two major Wi-Fi 6 features that make all of this possible: MU-MIMO and OFDMA.
Wireless Internet Service Providers (WISPs) have traditionally relied on the use of Wi-Fi technologies that leverage unlicensed frequency ranges of 2.4 and 5 GHz, along with all of the legal limitations that come with them. Recently, however, additional connectivity options have been made available and much more affordable to WISPs. Among those options is the use of Long Term Evolution (LTE) solutions. In this article, we examine how WISPs can use LTE for their networks, which was a topic of particular interest at WISPAMERICA this year.
Now that working from home and dispersed workforces have become the new norm, connecting employees’ or company-issued smartphones to the enterprise IP PBX offers several advantages, including the ability to reach employees via their direct inward dial (DID) landline numbers, even though they are physically off-premise.
The technology that enables this is called VoIP over cellular data networks. In this article we detail how to enable it, the advantages of doing so and some potential issues to watch out for.
Grandstream, a leader in SIP communication solutions, emerged into the networking solutions space in the fall of 2016 with a new line of Wi-Fi devices. As Grandstream has upgraded firmware, implemented new features and added new products to this line, it has proven to be a mainstay product category for Grandstream and we are excited to review two of their new access points, the GWN7630 and GWN7630LR!
Many administrators resist implementing VoIP over Wi-Fi, often citing security and quality concerns. The truth is that if implemented correctly, voice can be safely and reliably deployed on a wireless network. This article examines some best practices for optimizing voice over Wi-Fi (VoWi-Fi).
Wi-Fi itself should not be feared as a technology susceptible to network attacks; it is a flawed implementation that should be feared. Because of the nature of the technology, Wi-Fi signals can be easily intercepted by any wireless device within range. Nevertheless, with the proper security precautions in place, these intercepted signals become useless to even the most determined attacker. By employing industry-standard security measures, Wi-Fi becomes an enterprise-grade high-performance solution suitable for almost any application.
In this article, we examine the the most pervasive threats to Wi-Fi networks and the best ways to mitigate them.
Whether you’re preparing to deploy a new wireless network or upgrade an existing one, understanding wireless network design and deployment strategies is essential. In this article, we describe some strategies and best practices for getting the most out of your Wi-Fi network.
