Consolidated, integrated security for wired and wireless networks.
The increasing popularity of mobile devices and the need for cost reduction are driving Wireless LAN (WLAN) adoption. In-stat research forecasts that mobile handset shipments with Wi-Fi capability will achieve 50% CAGR from 2009 to 2013. In addition, organizations have embraced a wireless edge design to drive down the cost associated with edge switches and wiring. The ratification of the IEEE 802.11n wireless standard is the catalyst for new enterprise adoption since the new standard provides better coverage and fivefold performance increase over legacy wireless outperforming wired Fast Ethernet LANs.
