Overview

This note has identified a strategy of ‘right-sizing' the network by identifying and retiring stranded wired edge ports. Powering-down unused LAN switches represents real, hard-dollar savings for the IT budget which can be directed towards building out the WLAN: and as the WLAN becomes more pervasive and more users' PCs are refreshed, even more wired ports will be abandoned. Iterated over just a few annual cycles, see how this strategy offers a path to a more mobile, productive workforce powered by a lower IT budget.
