The rapid expansion of IoT and BYOD necessitate that all businesses re-evaluate how they design their Wi-Fi networks to meet users’ expectations to connect anywhere, on any device, at any time. Xirrus’ ‘Where the Wires End’ survey found a vast majority of consumers (76 per cent) connect to Wi-Fi outside of their home on a regular basis. Moreover, the study revealed the growing expectation of connectivity everywhere.
‘We are now more than ever a mobile, wireless-reliant society,’ said Shane Buckley, Xirrus CEO. ‘The proliferation of Wi-Fi connected devices combined with the expectation of steadfast connectivity has put increased demand on Wi-Fi networks everywhere. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the enterprise. Our study highlights the need for organizations to reinforce their networks to ensure a seamless connected experience for users at all times, no matter the location.’
