Mobile devices, customer engagement applications, and a robust wireless network are must-haves for Midsize businesses to survive and gain a competitive advantage. Continuously connecting with users and customers anywhere at any time, and leveraging data from network analytics allow businesses to deliver amazing user experiences and to seize opportunities much faster. As a result, the majority of Midsize business IT executives are shifting their focus from “keeping technology running” to leveraging technology and data to drive business growth.

But challenges remain.

Yet, their networks continue to be deployed and maintained by limited staff with limited budgets and training.
