Mobile workers should be guided by their corporate IT department clearly and simply as part of the company's IT security policy or guidance on mobile working. Many people's knowledge of wireless networks varies from knowing nothing about the security issues to full-blown paranoia fuelled by reports of the horrors of unsecured wireless LANs! If in doubt, ask.
With the constant evolution of threats, what kind of technology challenges does Bluesocket face?
In the wireless market more broadly, the big challenges are not so much about technology but about convergence. Today, most customer requests are about using voice over wireless networks.
What are your future plans? Any exciting new projects?
The most important innovation for Bluesocket this year is our MIMO (multiple input, multiple output) technology, an enterprise-class wireless access point. MIMO gives improved performance and coverage and is less influenced by hostile or constantly changing environments (both people and things move around in a working environment), which can be a problem for wireless networks. Our MIMO products, which are already 802.11 a and b/g complaint, can be upgraded to the new 802.11n standard simply and easily. This is exciting, as it makes MIMO the equivalent of an access point 'on steroids' - the most powerful on the market today!
