Business Editors/High-Tech Writers


Brian Collie Will Discuss Secure, User Specific WLAN Capabilities for Wireless Networks

Chantry Networks, the leading innovator of routed wireless networking technology, today announced that Co-founder and Executive Vice President, Brian Collie, will discuss the benefits that virtualization capabilities bring to a wireless network infrastructure, today at the Wireless Systems Design Conference in San Diego.

Collie will describe how virtualization allows organizations to create separate virtual subnets that allow different classes of users to access different, appropriately tailored classes of capabilities, over a single WLAN infrastructure. He will discuss exactly how this preserves security while ensuring that each user has access to the network capabilities that are essential to his or her job function. Collie will also discuss the importance of allowing the nature of these specific classes to change over time in response to user mobility, changing network conditions, and even time of day.

Attendees will learn:

-- How security, scalability and availability are enhanced when

virtualization capabilities are added to wireless networks;

-- About new opportunities that virtualization brings to wireless

network users;

-- How voice traffic can be secured separately from other traffic

on the WLAN to ensure the highest level of QoS and,

-- How virtualization is turbo-charging the adoption of wireless

networking by making it more cost effective and improving its

ability to meet users' needs.

This session will take place at 4:00 p.m. PST today, Tuesday, March 9th, at the San Diego Convention Center.
