enterprise networks keep workers connected to the network, giving them real-time access to information whether they are at or away from their desks.
Small Business WLANs
Small businesses can
set up a freestanding all-wireless network or they can integrate wireless LANs to extend an existing LAN.
Wireless LANs for Home Networking
Wireless networks are an ideal, no-hassle,
no-wires alternative for networking computers and Internet appliances in your home.
Point-to-point and point-multi-point connections allow users in different locations the opportunity to access
the Internet, share files, and access network resources without wires.
What is a Wireless LAN
A wireless LAN / WLAN is an on-premise data communication system that reduces the need for
wired connections and makes new applications possible, thereby adding new flexibility to networking. Mobile WLAN users can access information and network resources as they attend
meetings, collaborate with other users, or move to other campus locations. But the benefits of wireless LANs / WLANs extend beyond user mobility and productivity to enable portable LANs. With
WLANs, the network itself is movable. WLANs have proven their effectiveness in vertical markets and are now experiencing broader applicability in a wide range of business settings.
Benefits of WLANs
The widespread strategic reliance on networking among competitive businesses and the meteoric growth of the Internet and online services are strong testimonies to the benefits of shared data and
shared resources. With wireless LANs, users can access shared information without looking for a place to plug in, and network managers can set up or augment networks without installing or moving
wires. Wireless LANs offer the following productivity, service, convenience, and cost advantages over traditional wired networks:
Mobility-Wireless LAN systems can provide LAN users with access to real-time
information anywhere in their organization. This mobility supports productivity and service opportunities not possible with wired networks.
Installation Speed and Simplicity-Installing a wireless LAN system can be fast and easy
and can eliminate the need to pull cable through walls and ceilings.
Installation Flexibility-Wireless technology allows the network to go where wire cannot go.
Reduced Cost-of-Ownership-While the initial investment required for wireless LAN
hardware can be higher than the cost of wired LAN hardware, overall installation expenses and life-cycle costs can be significantly lower. Long-term cost benefits are greatest in
dynamic environments requiring frequent moves, adds, and changes.
Scalability-Wireless LAN systems can be configured in a variety of topologies to meet the
needs of specific applications and installations. Configurations are easily changed and range from peer-to-peer networks suitable for a small number of users to full infrastructure networks
of thousands of users that allows roaming over a broad area.
