Extreme WLAN solution to provide outdoor connectivity

Enterprise networking firm Extreme Networks has added another product to its IdentiFi Wireless LAN portfolio.  The 3865 802.11ac WLAN outdoor access point offers Wi-Fi solutions to indoor and outdoor connectivity.

Keeping in mind the rising BYOD trend, the need for increased wireless LANs is being felt and in the coming future the trend would surpass BYOD to wearable devices.

According to IDC, a 317 percent rise is seen in wearable shipments in 2013, which is expected to touch 111.9 million units by 2018, registering a CAGR of 78.4 percent in the next five years.

IdentiFi Wireless solution helps to tackle the challenges of scalability and traffic growth.
