Building A Wireless Office
Sales of IEEE 802.11x compliant wireless LANs are literally exploding. Unfortunately the manuals that accompany the equipment do not address topics such as site selection, equipment interoperability with products from different vendors, how to acquire and configure different firewalls, network address translation, and router software that becomes necessary when connecting to the internet. Building a Wireless Office covers these topics and more.
Written for a wide audience of readers who are either considering the use of wireless LANs or need to learn how to use them more efficiently, the text teaches how wireless LANs operate, the difference between currently available and emerging products, and why new wireless LANs that operate at higher data rates may not be suitable nor cost effective for all organizations. Focusing on key topics associated with the construction of a wireless office this how-to guide explains technical issues in non-technical terms.
The text discusses several areas asociated with wireless security that will minimize the possibility of your communication being read by unathorized parties. Building a Wireless Office provides you with information you can use to efficiently and economically construct a wireless office ranging in scope from two computers sharing information over the air, to the interconnection of hundreds to thousands of wireless products.
