Welcome to CiscoFullBars.com

For more than an decade I’ve asked customers a few simple questions and the answers each time are the same.  I will ask if, over time, have there been more or less wireless devices you need to support.  Every time, every year, the answer is “way more!”  I’ll ask if wireless is a primary network access medium and if there is little tolerance for less than stellar access.  Absolutely, yes.  I’ll finish up with asking how much the IT budget has expanded to accommodate this and the tools necessary to provide network assurance.  With very little exception, the answer is “it’s not, it’s shrinking.”

My goal with CiscoFullBars.com is to build a community to share best practices, guides, and connect like-minded WLAN enthusiasts.  Thank you for visiting.
