|Title: ||WIRELESS LOCAL AREA NETWORKINGTHEORY, DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION IN ELECTRICAL COMPLEX, GIDAN KWANO.|
|Issue Date: ||Dec-2009|
|Abstract: ||Local area networking grew out of the need to connect computers and rely on some kind of
physical transmission medium like the twisted pair cable, coaxial cable or optic fibre cables
to transfer data between connected devices.
During the course of this research, I investigated technologies that make wireless LAN work,
capabilities and limitation, security of a wireless network, design and implementation of a
wireless LAN, wireless LAN components and infrastructures. This work also takes a look at
typical wireless LAN consideration factors and implementation of a fictional wireless LAN
connection of the electrical complex in the school's permanent site.
The approach taken by this work is from the basic networking through the OSI layers 1 & 2
and then specific issues that relate to enterprise applications.
The major limitation oftoday's wireless LAN is basically that of incompatibility. Then again,
for unlicensed operation, the ISM band is being used, which brings about interference issues.
Most of the limitations of wireless LANs today are transitional in nature and will be solved
by additional standards or global business politics.|
