Comparing Aruba IAP-325 802.11ac Wave 2 Performance to Mojo C-120

Posted by Robert Ferruolo (Dr. RF) on Aug 24, 2016

Mojo C-120 Dominates, Aruba IAP-325 Lags in Campus WiFi

When we do competitive performance testing, we expect the premiere APs from our competitors to be in the same ballpark. We were quite surprised at the poor showing of the Aruba IAP-325 in the 50 client, mixed application test. The Aruba IAP-325 performed on par with the Mojo C-120 for the video and voice clients, but at the expense of the data clients where only 40% met the 1 Mbps minimum data throughput standard.

The Benefits of a 3-Radio 802.11ac Wave 2 Access Point

Posted by Freddy Mangum on Aug 23, 2016

Mojo Networks recently introduced the C-130, a three-radio 802.11ac Wave 2 access point, because our enterprise and university customers demanded more functionality for their WiFi infrastructure. The C-130 is a multi-purpose access point that can dedicate the third radio for an array of functionalities and associated benefits:

The Half-Truth of “SSAE 16 Certified Data Centers”

Posted by Hemant Chaskar on Aug 17, 2016

To assure customers about security, vendors of cloud managed WiFi often tell their customers that they use “SSAE 16 certified data centers.” It is essential to drill down into this claim, else it stands the risk of being a half-truth, and as Mark Twain once said, “A half-truth is the most cowardly of lies.”

Smart Client Load Balancing

Posted by Robert Ferruolo (Dr. RF) on Aug 16, 2016

Wireless Is Great, Except When It Isn’t

One of the challenges of WiFi is that clients are notoriously self-interested and use a very rudimentary decision-making process to determine which access point to connect to. This decision is simply based on AP signal strength or signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). The IEEE 802.11k standard is designed to help the clients make better, more informed roaming decisions, but to date very few clients have implemented it.

A Mojo Customer Story: Oakland Catholic High School

Posted by Erika Hashemi on Aug 11, 2016

When Oakland Catholic High School implemented a new 1:1 initiative during the summer of 2014, Vernon Young (Director of Information Technology) expected to encounter some hiccups along the way, but what he did not anticipate was how poorly their controller-based WiFi would perform in a high-density K-12 environment.

Speed Wins… and Feels Really Good, Too

Posted by Rick Wilmer on Aug 10, 2016

I have a friend in Hong Kong who bought a new Lamborghini. As an automotive enthusiast I was inquisitive. Hong Kong traffic is horrendous, thus I was particularly curious about where he could actually drive his Lambo. I asked: “Where can you go fast?” In all seriousness he replied: “Why would I want to go fast? Nobody would ever see me!”

Benchmark 802.11ac Wave 2 Performance: See How Mojo, Aerohive, Aruba, Meraki, and Ruckus Compare

Posted by Sean Blanton on Aug 9, 2016

The backbone of any WiFi network is the access point. Speeds have increased significantly with the advent of 802.11ac, and its second iteration (referred to as “Wave 2”) we are finally seeing multi-gigabit WiFi come to the forefront. These improvements owe a lot to the advancements made by chipset manufacturers and ODMs, who in turn create an ecosystem from which all major players pull their hardware. But hardware only goes as far as the software that lives within: in reality the highest levels of performance are realized from these two aspects working together. So when it comes to understanding that performance, two questions come to mind: How do you measure WiFi performance? And: Who has the best access point performance in the market today?

Enterprise Wireless LAN Controllers No Longer Needed. See For Yourself.

Posted by Freddy Mangum on Aug 3, 2016

There has been much chatter over the years on controller versus controllerless WiFi for large networks. No matter your WiFi religion, there is nothing like a real-world use case to see how the market is evolving, and we have an impressive one for your consideration.

Mojo Networks has captured anonymized data from a Global 2000 customer who runs both a cloud managed WiFi and a Cisco wireless LAN controller network. This customer supports large distributed and campus networks in K-12, higher education, enterprise, hospitality, retail, and an array of other verticals. They will eventually roll out one million access points.
