3 By 2015, 80% of newly installed wireless networks will be obsolete because of a lack of proper planning Gartner, 2011 Gartner) Always-on Network overloaded! Security Quality of service 3-5 devices per user At Gartner Symposium 2011, Gartner Research VP Paul DeBeasi said most enterprise wireless networks are not ready for what’s happening to mobile devices. Enterprises put in wireless networks for convenience, without thinking about the huge numbers of smartphones and tablets that are now showing up. Gartner predicts more than 300 million tablets will be installed by 2015, and no business has planned for that. As a result, by 2015, 80 percent of newly installed wireless networks will be obsolete because of poor planning. DeBeasi warned that wireless LANs (WLANs) are not designed for pervasive Wi-Fi services, real-time communication, or high throughput. Most guest networkers are not designed for "Bring Your Own Device" and, in general, the enterprise does not have visibility into radio frequency issues. This is all compounded by inadequate WLAN management. BYOD support Can’t connect! Is your network ready? Gartner)

16 Revolutionary Architecture to address Scalability
Legacy Centralized Architecture Servers Wireless Controllers Avaya WLAN Next Generation Architecture Servers Virtualized Wireless Controller Data traffic Control traffic 802.11ac Ready! A key differentiators of Avaya’s WLAN 8100 lies in its next generation architecture and its ability to scale. The diagram on the left highlights typical WLAN architecture today; WAPs provide wireless coverage to end user devices; core/edge switching network and the wireless controller is centralized. Typically with centralized architecture all the wireless control and data traffic travels first to the controller prior to being routed to its ultimate destination. This architecture was fine in the past when it was primarily low bandwidth applications ( , Internet) and the number of users leveraging enterprise wireless networks was limited. However with video applications becoming mainstream, you need see the impact that this has on wireless infrastructure. High bandwidth video traffic is hairpinning through the controller and very quickly the controllers becomes a bottleneck. Not only does this limit scalability, it also increases jitter and latency. With WLAN 8100 next generation unified” architecture the wireless control traffic is decoupled from the data traffic. The key difference with this architecture lies not only in the decoupling of control and data traffic, but in how traffic is handled. With Avaya architecture, the wireless control traffic remains for centralized control and provisioning (which is what you want to ensure user mobility), and can be virtualized and/or made available in the ‘control cloud’. The data traffic is routed directly from source to destination (eliminating the controller as a choke point) through the optimal LAN switching path. This allows for packet forwarding in the hardware, reducing latency and jitter for voice and video. Decoupling control and data enables independent control scaling and capacity forwarding within the wireless network making it a very scalable network. First release of split plane -> July 2012 on ERS Implementation on edge switches is planned for 2012/2013. All traffic routed through controller Constrained capacity Controller-less architecture that eliminates bottlenecks Greater efficiency & reduced latency

20 End to End Security Secure, Centralized Network Access
Devices directed to appropriate VLAN Support for today’s strongest security standards Authentication & Encryption WEP, WPA/WPA2 Advanced Wireless Intrusion Detection and Protection Secure LAN Guest VLAN Firewall Controller or Switching Point Wireless Access Point Laptop Tablet Captive Portal Identity Engines The key to deploying a secure wireless LAN solution is end –to-end security with validation at every step of the process - first user authentication before any network access is allowed strong data encryption (WPA/WPA2) to protect user privacy and data confidentiality Wireless intrusion detection and prevention capabilities to detect any rogue network activity and malicious attack The majority of end user devices (iPad, Android Blackberry, Windows XP sp3, Windows 7, Windows Vista and MAC OS) support 802.1x authentication framework and Identity Engines can authenticate any device supporting this. When a device attempts to connect to the network, the necessary authentications will occur and the wireless AP will be instructed to either permit or deny access. If access is permitted, the server generates an encryption key between the users device client and AP. Since Identity Engines uses port-based access control using 802.1x, users obtain consistent network access based on users identity and not on location. For example, when a user accesses the network from an AP in a conference room, he/she would have the same level of network access that they would receive at their desk. As discussed previously, policies can be defined based on device … for example in the diagram, you may have a user who has both a corporate laptop and their own personal iPad. While the user will authenticate with the same corporate credentials whether they are on their laptop or iPad, the network access they receive will differ. They may be granted full corproate access when they’re using their PC but limited corporate acess when he is accessing with his iPad. (this is done by creating policies that specifically apply to iPads,…. a device record is created in the local store of idEngines with the MAC address of the device and then associate the device with the user..) Encryption: WLAN 8100 supports today’s strongest security standards WPA/WPA2, 802.1x, WEP etc) Wireless Intrusion Detection – WLAN 8100 provides basic WIDS capability and advanced WIDS/WIPS through partnership

The benefits of external antennas include: Improved deployment flexibility – Planners can choose an antenna pattern that meets coverage requirements while allowing for convenient AP placement and installation. Improved aesthetics – External antennas feature a 3 foot cable that allows the connected access point to be installed out-of-sight. Improved coverage and performance – External antennas allow planners to optimize coverage, by being able to direct available energy to where it’s needed, and deliver higher available data rates to user concentrations. Can provide a low cost fix for trouble spots - Appropriately outfitting existing APs with external antennas can greatly improve coverage and available data rates in areas that are not adequately serviced. Increased security – Perimeter access points outfitted with directional external antennas can focus energy inwards and increase security by preventing signal “leakage” outside the office. 3 element Directional Antenna 6 element Omni Antenna
