What specific situations would UWB be helpful in? We continue with our breakdown of UWB with Stephen Cooper looking at what problems exactly does UWB try to solve.
Do a predictive because you don't have access to the building yet. And a lot of times we don't have access to a building we can just get a floor plans and we don't know what the building materials can be made of. So we're gonna have to make some educated guesses.
ScreenFlow has become a favorite tool at Wireless LAN Professionals to help us create our daily posts. Here's a quick tutorial showing you how it's done so you can create your own YouTube tutorials, demos, or explainer videos for your customers, peers, or to build...
We are finally doing the field test. In today's video, we're doing client testing Jordan High School in Utah in the United States.
So what is ultra wide band? It is not Verizon 5GB Ultra Wide Band that they're marketing at the moment. You'll see this come up a lot. There's a lot of Google search ads popping up. They're prioritizing Verizon's marketing for 5Ghz ultra wideband. Let's just build...
There are some good reasons why your AP needs to hang on the ceiling, not the wall Wi-Fi is so resilient even when you don't follow best practices it still works - BUT you are paying a price when you hang APs incorrectly. Let's look at why. Transcripts Don't hang...
Can we make an API call to extract this data from a MacBook?
You've heard this before, lights, camera, action. . . and I think we all should add a little bit about sound in there as well. In today's video, I'm going to give you some tips and hints on how to look better on Zoom.

Today we're going to talk about Wi-Fi signal. Wi-fi signal is one of the tools that I use, at least daily, a couple of times a day for years now.
Wired or wireless? How to quickly narrow down if you have a Wi-Fi problem. In this video, we're going to share a little bit of information how you might be able to help your customers see whether or not it is truly a Wi-Fi problem.
Is there a relationship between MCS and transmit power? Kind of... And the question goes on to say, "Some vendors publish dependent's MCS, transmit power, receive sensitivity data sheets and you can go look those up..."
A friendly reminder to document everything. In today's little video, Keith shares another Wireless Lan design tip. If you are asked to design and deploy a WLAN you know is going to fail, document, document, document!
It is not what you think... One assumption leads to another assumption, leading to more assumptions... then we have Capacity? Really?
Meet all your requirements. Not just primary coverage, not just secondary or code channel interference.
Always choose the APs before you start designing. The reason you need to do before, is there is such a huge difference in access points.
Is there any way to get MCS value off of a Windows 10 device or Windows seven or Windows XP or whatever you want to go to? And the answer is no, sorry.
Always, always, always, always validate what you're doing. Now, there's a lot of different ways you can go through validation. You could do an AP on a stick. When you do an AP on a stick, you actually put in AP up on a tripod.
Don't follow marketing ratios This is one that I really. I just going to say it right out. Don't do it. Don't follow marketing ratios, they're not engineering, they're purely marketing.
Now how do you know what the best practices are? In today's training video, we're going to talk about following best practices because if you follow them, usually, most of the time you'll have a much more efficient Wi-Fi.
Let's find out how to make Wi-Fi go faster. In today's video, we compare how we made Ethernet go faster and whatever work there might help us make our Wi-Fi go faster.
What are the benefits of ignoring SSIDs? "I'm curious to find out what the real world benefits can be found from removing clear to send requirement by ignoring SSIDs you don't care about."Yeah, I don't know of any method to ignore SSIDS... Some people and this is...

In today's video, we're going to talk about wireless LAN design tip: Know ALL the requirements. There's a whole lot of requirements and we usually get a requirement from our customers who come in and say something like "We just need the Wi-Fi to work everywhere fast"....
In today's video, we are going to talk about how a good WiFi Design is NOT just about the green. Just being green doesn't mean it's good. It's about what are you actually going to achieve.
In this video, we will compare the RF Spectrum to see what we are gaining from Wi-Fi 6. We're not going to go talking about the 900 MHz or some of the other IoT bands. We're just focusing on 2.4, 5 gig and 6.
It’s that time again… Now, to be clear we do NOT have any specific dates/locations to announce for #WLPC 2021 yet, but we do want to start getting ready for when things finally do open up and we can all gather together again. So in the spirit of “being prepared”, we...
Do you know of any manufacturers whose controllers support BSSID coloring? This is something that will be coming that has been "promised" in Wi-Fi 6 - 802.11ax. As of now, we don't know of any vendors who have it working yet.. we shall see. It will be great when it is...
What's the PHY? The physical layer. You need to know how a NIC works. Now NIC are entirely different in wireless than wired. Learn more about the PHY in today's video.
