Inside and Outside Control
An assessment has been completed to validate the need for an upgrade to your small- to medium-sized wireless network. Approved for purchase are indoor and outdoor access points and one wireless controller. You must compare equipment models and their specifications before you purchase.
Therefore, you visit the “Wireless Compare Products and Services“ web site and see a features chart for indoor and outdoor wireless access points and controller devices. After reviewing the chart, you note there is some terminology with which you are unfamiliar:
- Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS)
- Cisco CleanAir Technology
- Cisco FlexConnect
- Band Select
Research the above terms. Prepare your own chart with your company’s most important requirements listed for purchasing the indoor and outdoor wireless access points and wireless controller. This chart will assist in validating your purchase order to your accounting manager and CEO.
