The “Carpeted Office” Problems, Impacts, Wireless Solutions, and Benefits Part 1
Industry Needs “Carpeted office” is different because it targets a broad adoption of wireless LAN across an office environment Thus, key “industry” needs are general business needs: –Ubiquitous network/resource access –Increase responsiveness & improve productivity –Gain competitive advantage –React and adapt to changing business dynamics faster –Collaborate more effectively The Fear Factor: –Rogue deployments creating security problem –Get ahead of it
Drivers for WLAN It is already there (unauthorized) Shift from desktop to laptops in corporate environment Laptop manufacturers are embedding 802.11 End-users are demanding mobility
The Business Impact Mobility, a necessity for all workers Enabling workforce mobility can directly impact the top & bottom line: –Top line: increases revenue opportunity and creates competitive advantage through increased responsiveness, ability to adapt to quickly changing market conditions –Bottom line: decreases costs through increased productivity and reduction of adds/moves/changes Guest access enhances collaboration and saves time Proactive planning will make better use of assets and save time and resources
Wireless Solutions Help our Customers Business Applications for WLAN in the carpeted office: Enabling worker mobility (insertion) Guest networking (sell through BBSM) –extends the network to visitors and contractors to accomplish business critical tasks without sacrificing security Voice services via IP phones – e.g. Softphone and 7920 –All of the advantages of IP phones - now truly mobile (office anywhere) Mobile video conferencing, instant messaging – improve collaboration with partners, customers and other employees with mobile communication tools New wireless devices –wireless printers for hard to wire places and easy redeployment Between buildings - wireless bridging for cost-effective alternative to T-1 lines
Key Partners that Help Provide the Total Solution Cisco Compatible Extension (CCX) Partners - the key to “carpeted office” Enterprises, much like Cisco, will buy laptops with embedded wireless –IBM, Toshiba, Dell: laptops –HP: laptops, printers, PDAs AVVID Partners Funk, Interlink Other Solution Partners Airprism: remote device management Airmagnet: for site survey STI Intermec
Customer Benefits Increased responsiveness and productivity through extended connectivity: Wireless LANs enable end users to be connected an additional three and one half hours per day, which translates into a 27% productivity gain per person. Increases customer responsiveness Decreased costs Measurable impact on profitability Average annual ROI of $14,000 per employee based on cost savings and productivity gains Wireless networking allows for greater accuracy in everyday tasks Improves employee satisfaction-wireless is addictive
Case Study Customer problem: Barilla America, How to upgrade the network cost effectively to add new functionality and cut costs. Impact of problem: New building had difficult to wire areas and large collaboration rooms. It would be difficult for employees to run to their desks to access data when in these meeting rooms. Network access to visitors was also desired Total Cisco solution: IP telephony, foundation technology, and wireless LANs Benefit: Improved communications, increased efficiency, employee satisfaction, increased customer responsiveness, and decreased expenses http://www.cisco.com/go/aironet/profiles
