Wireless Technologies
The wireless networking industry is hotting up ...   Our superfast briefing on wireless LANs cuts through the hype, examines the most essential issues and recommends the way to go with WLANs.

A range of wireless network products and services have recently become available, including IEEE 802.11 wireless LANs, Bluetooth, HomeRF and soon HiperLAN2.

Wireless network security is a major concern for all organisations as the insecurity of 802.11 Wi-Fi WLANs currently allows anyone outside your organisation access to your corporate data. We believe it is now essential for all organisations to incorporate regular Wireless network audits into their information security policy.

3G versus Wi-Fi
With the launch of 3's new UMTS service, mobile network operators offering GPRS, UMTS and iMode services are set to compete with emerging fixed broadband wireless ISP services from companies such as Boingo, BT, T-Mobile and many more.

We have already training one of the UK's leading hotspot providers in the deployment of 802.11 WLANs.

This leaves organisations of all types and sizes wondering which technologies they should adopt and how they should deploy them. Network operators too want to know how these wireless technologies compete with their current network offerings, and how new wireless services can be introduced.
