Peeks Newsletter Heading

Letter from the Editor

Demand for enterprise Wi-Fi has increased drastically over the past few years, mostly due to the growth of 802.11 and Wi-Fi-enabled smartphones. As enterprises continue to adopt the new wireless innovations coming to market, management solutions for voice and video over Wi-Fi will continue to expand in importance.

While they will continue to play a more important role in organizations, video and voice over Wi-Fi require a high-performing network to manage the raised volume of traffic. This means that enterprises need a network analysis solution that can provide an accurate picture of its performance. To help you understand these unique management challenges, this month's edition of the Peeks Newsletter focuses on the trends in voice and video over Wi-Fi. .
