A best-in-class network is an absolute requirement for business agility for organizations of all types and sizes, and that network increasingly starts with a high-performance wireless connection at the network edge. Whether for students in a classroom, fans in a stadium, medical staff in a hospital, guests in a hotel, or employees in an office, organizations today require a network infrastructure that integrates high-quality wireless access with a wired backbone that delivers the growing levels of performance, scalability, flexibility and security required for today’s digital business world.
As Wi-Fi and cellular continue to converge, an integrated wired and wireless foundation can provide the operational flexibility and scale-out capabilities needed to support innovations such as emerging 5G mobile services, the Internet of Things (IoT), OpenG™ technology to address the indoor cellular challenge, and smart cities. These technologies and applications deliver value that reaches far beyond traditional network boundaries.

The combined company has a singular focus on networking and is uniquely positioned to help customers realize the benefits of a New IP network infrastructure.
