Explaining the Value
Avaya WLAN 9100 allows enterprises to buy 802.11n technology today and
upgrade to 802.11ac with just a software license – no need to touch the AP to
upgrade
Why is it important?
 Most 11n to 11ac upgrades require
manual swap out of the Access Point
 A technician must be dispatched to climb a ladder
and swap the AP(= labor/OPEX costs).
 Avaya WLAN 9100 offers a software only upgrade
from 802.11n to 802.11ac
 Customers can start with 11n and upgrade to 11ac
in their time, without touching the AP.
© 2014 Avaya Inc. All rights reserved.

Explaining the Value
Avaya WLAN 9100 ensures with 100% certainty, that wireless Business
Applications aren’t compromised by recreational applications
Why is it important?
 This provides Application-level Control to ensure predictable application
performance
 This provides IT with granular Control as to which user groups can use specific
applications
 Avaya Application Control provides recognition for 1,300+ applications
 This allows customers to block, throttle or
apply QoS to applications directly
at the Network Edge
 This reduces network load and ensures
that the most important applications
come first
© 2014 Avaya Inc. All rights reserved.
3
Explaining the Value
Avaya WLAN 9100 provides up to 70%* more bandwidth per Access Point, 2x the
capacity for the price of one AP and more coverage area with fewer AP’s
Why is it important?
 It enables enterprises to customize APs based on their specific client
environment
 Unlike other vendors solutions where the radios are preset, WLAN 9100 supports
software programmable radios
 Each radio can be programed
for the client environment
–
e.g. if all clients are 2.4GHz,
both radios can be set to 2.4GHz
 To ensure the optimal user experience
APs can customized as the client
environment changes over time
* 70% more bandwidth is based on the following:
• Industry-standard 802.11ac, 3x3 AP:
Radio 1 = 225Mbps (2.4GHz); Radio 2 = 1.3Gbps (5GHz) = Max Bandwidth = 1.525Gbps
• Avaya 802.11ac, 3x3 AP: Radio 1 =1.3Gbps (5Ghz) and Radio 2 (5GHz) = 1.3 bps =
Max bandwidth = 2.6Gbps

(Phase 2)
Avaya WLAN 9100 offers cloud-based as well as on-premise management for rapid
deployment, unparalleled visibility & simplified administration
Why is it important?
 Cloud-based Management
–
reduces the demands on IT administrators
–
allows wireless networks to be deployed and administered quickly and easily
–
is particularly attractive for
customers who do not have
large IT staffs or cannot afford
training
–
removes the complexity and
learning curve associated with
deploying and operating
wireless networks

 It brings the benefits of the Data Center and Core
to the Edge
 It makes the entire implementation, provisioning,
and ongoing changes fast, easy, and error proof
 It enhances the performance and resiliency of
the whole network

Customer Objections to WLAN 9100
Avaya is nowhere
in WLAN!
We offer a holistic end-to-end
solution. Our new WLAN 9100
offers best in class Wi-Fi.

Customer Objections to WLAN 9100
All 802.11ac
solutions are
created equal.
Not quite. Avaya WLAN 9100
provides70% more bandwidth per
AP, and twice the capacity for the
price of one AP. This means more
coverage area with fewer AP’s.

Customer Objections to WLAN 9100
Cisco tells us that with
802.11ac, there is no need
for high density APs.
True, APs are faster, but
clients are also faster and
you still need to scale.

Cisco's CleanAir
improves Wi-Fi
performance!
This is a band aid for legacy
2.4GHz. Avaya recommends that
clients move to 5GHz and use
software programmable radios.

Customer Objections to WLAN 9100
WLAN infrastructure
solutions provide no
visibility to the applications
running over them.
Avaya WLAN 9100
provides granular visibility
and control for more than
1,300 applications.
Avaya's solution can
block or throttle apps,
and it can give QoS
to business apps.

Customer Objections to WLAN 9100
But the .11n to .11ac
technology transition
requires a manual,
AP swap-out.
Avaya WLAN allows you to
buy 802.11n technology today
and upgrade to .11ac with just
a software license – no need
to touch the AP to upgrade.
However, what you
say is true for some
competitive WLAN
solutions. For them
it’s a rip and replace.

Customer Objections to WLAN 9100
Avaya WLAN 9100 is only
beneficial to Avaya Fabric
Connect customers. We don't
have Fabric Connect.
Indeed, Avaya's Fabric
Intelligence offers a huge
advantage to 9100 APs.
However, the WLAN 9100 is
a highly competitive solution
for all wireless requirements.

Customer Objections to WLAN 9100
Avaya lacks good
WLAN Management.
Avaya WLAN 9100 offers onpremise management, and in
phase 2 we also offer cloud-based
management. Both enable a rapid
deployment, unparalleled visibility
and simplified administration.

Customer Objections to WLAN 9100
Avaya is expensive.
Avaya APs are very cost
effective if budget is tight.
Run a TCO for a true overall
comparison.
