Once a month I invite wireless industry experts, consultants, and people responsible for the products we all use to chat on interesting, relevant topics. No marketing fluff! Our sleeves are rolled up and we’re ready to work.
New episodes are available monthly and occasionally mid-month with a special edition. On this page you’ll find a link to summary articles where we post the audience questions and guest responses.
You are invited to participate in the live podcast recordings each month! We use Cisco WebEx Event Center and you can use the Upcoming Events section of this page to register for each session.
Please subscribe to the #WirelessTuesday email list to stay up-to-date with an event reminder and follow-up message each month.

|November 7, 2017||Update on the WPA2 KRACK WiFi Vulnerabilities –
I have asked Stephen Orr, Distinguished SE here at Cisco to weigh in on the WPA2 vulnerabilities known as KRACK and Cisco’s (and the industry’s) response. Stephen just got back from some WFA meetings where it was a hot topic. He’s recently Tweeted things like “this too shall pass,” suggested that even WITH the vulnerabilities WPA2 is still more secure than WEP, and advised us #DontPanic. I’m really looking forward to his perspective.
