- Communicating through wireless technology is changing the face of how we behave and solve many of today’s business problems.IEEE 802.11n is a next generation wireless technology that delivers spectacular improvements in the reliability, speed, and range of 802.11 communications. Delivering about 6 times the data rate and 2-5 times the throughput of 802.11a/g with substantial improvements in network coverage and connection quality, 802.11n is expected to replace wired Ethernet as the dominant local area network technology of the future.Dimension Network Systems have fully accredited Motorola and Cisco Wireless Engineers and installed many of the country’s largest wireless networks e.g. Dublin City University and Superquinn Stores throughout Ireland.Wireless security is an essential feature of any reliable WLAN as wireless technology is exploding in popularity; it also presents a new challenge to IT security, especially as it relates to maintaining confidentiality and integrity of data. First, the air is a shared medium and lacks the physical control of its wired counterpart. Any wireless device can “see” all the traffic of other wireless devices in the network. Sensitive information that is transmitted between wireless devices can be intercepted and disclosed if not protected by strong encryption.
Second, businesses are steadily integrating wireless technology into their wired network, and connecting through the wireless network can often bypass the traditional wired-side security. Rogue or insecure Access Points can compromise network security, making them popular targets for hackers. Even if an organization has no sanctioned Wireless LANs, Wi-Fi enabled laptops and PDAs can open backdoors into the corporate network and render existing security measures useless.
