Are you interested in the future of wireless networking? Are you satisfied with the way client devices are evolving (or not evolving) and with the feature-fragmented nature of the overall WLAN client device pool?
Do you consider the notion of “interoperability” to be more lip-service than realized deliverable when it comes to the status quo in WLANville?
Whether things seem peachy-swell to you, or in need of serious reform by industry-shapers like the Wi-Fi Alliance, I encourage you to click over to a current article by Wi-Fi Alliance President and CEO Edgar Figueroa now running in Network Computing (I also happen to write for them).
Edgar asks “What’s your Wi-Fi strategy for 2015?” For many of us, the answer is:
“trying to design and maintain high-performing, secure WLAN environments while the industry works against itself with excellent infrastructure devices on one end, and horribly-implemented client devices on the other.”
There aren’t many opportunities to interact with the Wi-Fi Alliance directly, so from one WLAN Pro to another I encourage you to make your own opinions known in the comments of the article. Hopefully Edgar will reply, and we can gain a sense of why things are the way they are in the client device space- and whether we should realistically expect any relief in the near future.
