Cisco has announced new wireless hardware and software solutions, which it says is designed to extend the corporate wireless network from the office to the home teleworker, incorporating existing control, management and security infrastructure. According to Cisco, the OfficeExtend solution includes new access points, a full line of wireless controllers and the industry’s first dual-band 802.11n access point specifically designed for teleworkers. The solutions require no intervention from end users, lowering information technology support requirements and overall cost of ownership by allowing IT professionals to remotely manage home access points alongside the corporate infrastructure, it adds.
