Preparing You Network for the Mobility Explosion: How to turn BYOD into Productivity             

The real drain on IT resources when evaluating a networking vendor solution is not simply getting devices onto the network – it’s what to do with them once they’re there. Having a way to securely connect and monitor managed and unmanaged devices, reporting on security compliance, ensuring the devices can use available services and assets and are restricted from those which they should not access, and making sure the devices don’t overwhelm available network resources are the real game changers for a successful BYOD implementation. This session will discuss the necessary connectivity and productivity requirements in order to ensure your network is truly ready for the mobility explosion, including an overview of necessary access, authentication, and security options as well as focusing on the equally essential features required to ensure your network is prepared to make all devices attached to it productive and compliant.
