There is a way to manage all this. Juniper calls it being “Simply Connected.” And we have products to help you to get there.
At a large industry conference last fall, I had the
opportunity to talk to my neighbors about what was new and interesting in their
worlds and in their networks. Interestingly,
the answer was some variation of the following: “My boss wants to use his new
iPad at work. We have to
change/fix/install new network policies to make this happen.” When I asked what had to change in order to
make this easy, the same three themes emerged:
They need a better way to provision
tablets. While they can support the boss
as a one-off, they can’t fix everyone’s tablets to make them compatible and
secure in the workplace.
They need more 802.11n wireless solutions in place—their
current coverage is insufficient.
They need to figure out what to do if everyone
wants tablets and smart devices.
