To Wi-Fi or not to Wi-Fi

Recently I was with a coworker, helping him deliver a Lync 2013 workshop, and one of the major topics that comes around is whether Lync is ready for Wi-Fi use or not.

There are many considerations that come around if Wi-Fi should be used for real-time communications. I’ve always been very skeptical and haven’t had a “seamless” experience unless I’m the only one using the access point.

Microsoft has taken the time to drill-down into extending customers certain guidelines such as deployment considerations, what issues affect Wi-Fi, among other subjects that can be addressed. The whitepaper can be downloaded from here, and you can find a summary of what it’s about in the NextHop blog.

Also, Aruba has been recently certified for delivering a Wi-Fi solution for Microsoft UC. You can find more information here.
