NETSCOUT – Nuthin’ But a G(2) Thang

A few weeks ago at Mobility Field Day 2 I was afforded the opportunity to listen to a presentation from the fine people of NETSCOUT (all capitals because that is how Kendall Hershey told me it should be).  It was somewhat of a reunion for Brennan, Rob, and myself as we had established a relationship … Continue reading NETSCOUT – Nuthin’ But a G(2) Thang

Through the Mist; Predictable, Reliable, and Measurable Wifi from Mist Systems

I recently had the opportunity to listen to a presentation from Mist Systems at Mobility Field Day 2 in San Jose.  At first glance/listen Mist might sound like just another controller-less "cloud" wifi solution that touts a shiny dashboard and user analytics.  They even toss around trendy new buzzwords such as "AI" and "machine learning."  … Continue reading Through the Mist; Predictable, Reliable, and Measurable Wifi from Mist Systems

We recently received reports from a school that the wifi was "not working."  Early on … Continue reading Frozen Fi – The Big TX Freeze

Single Channel Architecture and Virtual Cell and its Effect on Co-Channel Contention

Before you go ripping me, hear me out. I was recently called out to a high school who had put in a trouble incident indicating that they were experiencing slow wireless performance and client disconnections in a particular area of the building.  When I arrived I found that there was a high concentration of clients … Continue reading Single Channel Architecture and Virtual Cell and its Effect on Co-Channel Contention

Leaving on a Jet Plane…East Bound and Down (to Virginia) from @CiscoLive

Ok...I know I promised blog posts every night. That was a first time attendee mistake.  Live and learn. This will be the precursor to a longer more detailed blog post about an amazing week at Cisco Live. No blog post will ever do justice to the incredible time that I had. I met so many … Continue reading Leaving on a Jet Plane…East Bound and Down (to Virginia) from @CiscoLive
