The Value of Cisco Compatible Extensions (CCX) for Mobile Computers
IEEE and industry standards define how a Wi-Fi radio interoperates with a wireless LAN infrastructure, and the Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™ seal ensures interoperability. For many organizations that rely on mobile computers, however, Wi-Fi CERTIFIED is not enough. These organizations need assurance that their mobile computers will interoperate with a Cisco wireless LAN infrastructure and support Cisco wireless LAN innovations for enhanced security, mobility, quality of service, and network management. The Cisco Compatible seal gives organizations the assurance that they seek.
Organizations of all types and sizes worldwide rely on mobile computers for data collection and information management. When a mobile computer uses a wireless LAN, the Wi-Fi® radio in the mobile computer must provide a reliable network connection. If the connection is not reliable, then the device will be seen as unreliable.
