Coverage, Capacity, Quality of Service, and Security Considerations for Delivering Excellent Voice Quality on Enterprise Wi-Fi Networks.

Tuesday, September 17, 2013

Voice over Wireless LAN (VoWLAN), also known as “Voice over Wi-Fi” (VoWiFi), delivers the capabilities and functionality of an enterprise telephone system in a Wi-Fi handset. The handset is a WLAN client device, sharing the same wireless network as laptops and other handheld devices. For enterprise use, the handset is functionally equivalent to a wired desk phone, giving end-users all the features they are used to having in a wired office telephone.

This document examines the business requirements for on-site mobile employees, and which wireless voice options are available to organisations who are using an Avaya or legacy Nortel infrastructure. It also describes the End of Sale status of many of their handsets, and how they can be replaced.
