Aruba Tech Webinar with Brandeis University: Unified Access & Apple Bonjour
Attached is a copy of the presentation from today's tech webinar with John Turner (aka. turner), Director of Networks & Systems at Brandeis University and folks from Aruba - including myself and our VP of Technology Partha Narasimhan (aka. partha). We have also published all the Q&A during the webinar to our community technology blog. A video recording of the presentation can be downloaded from Aruba Networks website or you can see it below:
John presented us with challenging questions during the last year and answers to these tough questions formed the basis for our discussion during the webinar.
1/ How do you move from a VLAN/SSID centric separate wired/wireless to owner/user centric unified access network... and why should you? The drivers, technical challenges, lessons learned at Brandeis University.
2/ How do you make mobile devices get easy, secure access to Apple Bonjour services - such as AirPlay and AirPrint - across a wireless LAN infrastructure... where these services and mobile devices reside on separate brodcast domains?
3/ What are the steps required by IT and by end users to define services available within the network based on context - for individual users, for different roles of users, for different locations?
First question was answered by Aruba's Mobility Access Switches. Other questions were answered by Aruba AirGroup technology. Introduction to and additional details on Aruba AirGroup can be found at our technology blog.
Thanks again to all who joined us this morning. For any questions, please let us know using the discussion forums on Campus WLANs, Mobility Access Switches, ArubaOS and ClearPass.
