Design Principles For Voice over WLAN
By Cisco Systems
WLANs are rapidly becoming pervasive among enterprises. The availability of wireless voice clients, the introduction of dual-mode (wireless and cellular) smart phones, and the increased productivity realized by enabling a mobile workforce are moving WLANs from a convenience to a critical element of the enterprise network infrastructure. When deploying a wireless LAN infrastructure to support voice applications, it is useful to understand Voice Ready WLAN design principles and how they differ from conventional WLAN networks that only support data applications. This white paper discusses the principles of designing a Voice Ready WLAN.
