The Enterprise Mobility Solutions business unit of Motorola announced a Wireless LAN cost calculation service that enables customers to correctly calculate the complete costs of their investment in wireless WLAN infrastructure and wireless services on a per-square-foot basis.

Offered as a free service to customers, this cost calculation service can help margin-sensitive retailers assess the hidden costs of wireless operations and improve network planning, budgeting and operations.

"Enterprises continue to look to expand their use of wireless at the edge of the network. In vertical markets such as retail, they are looking for better ways of cost-justifying their lifetime wireless infrastructure expenses," Tim Zimmerman, principal analyst at Gartner, Inc., said in a statement.

Zimmerman added that enterprises deploying wireless are interested in gaining “a better picture of their total cost of ownership."

Rather than basing prospects’ wireless infrastructure outlays on fixed costs alone, Motorola’s WLAN cost calculator analyzes retailers’ fixed and variable costs to provide a true prediction of the total cost of wireless LAN operations on the network. The information can be used to help determine how various architecture and options, such as 802.11n or remote PCI compliance solutions, can affect the costs of operation.
