This paper discusses the outline strategic security policies that needs for SME organisations to be implemented for all cooperative partners etc. must work within. Makes you to understandabout the benefits and threats in the wireless and mobile technologies that are used in SMEsector.The network infrastructure that could be developed at each centre as a standardisedformat detailing the security considerations and their collaborative strengths which are associatedwith emerging technologies generally in the networking sector form with development.
An SME is the Micro and Small Enterprises (MSEs) is a key sector in industrial economy of anycountry. The theorist described about SME in Wikipedia as “It is estimated that in terms of value, the sector accounts for about 39% of the manufacturing output and around 33% of thetotal export of the country. Further, in recent years the MSE sector has consistently registeredhigher growth rate compared to the overall industrial sector. The major advantage of the sector isits employment potential at low capital cost. As per available statistics, this sector employs anestimated 31 million persons spread over 12.8 million enterprises and the labor intensity in theMSE sector is estimated to be almost 4 times higher than the large enterprises” referred from .SME resembles to be a small sector but indeed very much of big industries are dependenton the right functioning of SMEs. So let us see what are the key technologies in network are usedgive they good availability, reliability and high security and finding out the new technologiesemerging in era which are useful in this sector for providing great outputs.
As we all know what is mobile phone? A medium through which we communicate through along distance. How it works? With the help of telecommunication signals between your satelliteand your receiver as air as medium of transferring a signal that means there will not be anyconnection wired. The wireless technology is increasing widely in all sectors and organizationsusing this technology to and getting benefitted.1

2.1.1 Radio communication
The Use of radio communication in industry is come in to picture along with the use of radiomodems. The figure 1 below gives is an example, use of Modbus over a data link layer in radiocommunication. Diagram also explains about the latest wireless LAN technology standards suchas IEEE 802.11a, IEEE 802.11b and IEEE 802.15 (Bluetooth) use making cut communicationcosts.
2.1.2 Bandwidth
The bandwidth associated with rate of data flow in bytes. The bandwidth in wireless network isavailable only in the core of network. Bandwidth is always expansive. In all the country thewireless network spectrum is under the control of governments. The few spectrum of bandwidthis provided for commercial use which makes organizations to cost a more for wirelesscommunication. All the protocols for wireless medium associated with bandwidth are given bycentral constrains such as governments.
WLAN are found normally in small area network such as in office buildings or in a campus anyware the traditional can’t be implemented for logistical reasons. The key benefits are speedsimple setup, scalability and free mobility of user in the coverage area.2

2.2.1 Advantages and disadvantages in WLAN 
WLAN having many advantages and disadvantages comparing to wired LANs. A WLAN provides to give add or remove the install access points of connectivity where the laying of cableis difficult.
Advantages are
It is easier to add or move workstations.
It is easier to provide connectivity in areas where it is difficult to lay cable.
Installation is fast and easy, and it can eliminate the need to pull cable through Walls andceilings.
Access to the network can be from anywhere within range of an access point.
Portable or semi-permanent buildings can be connected using a WLAN.
Although the initial investment required for WLAN hardware can be similar to the cost of wired LAN hardware, installation expenses can be significantly lower.
When a facility is located on more than one site (such as on two sides of a road), adirectional antenna can be used to avoid digging trenches under roads to Connect thesites.
In historic buildings where traditional cabling would compromise the façade, a WLANcan avoid the need to drill holes in walls.
Long-term cost benefits can be found in dynamic environments requiring frequent movesand changes.
Disadvantages are
As the number of computers using the network increases, the data transfer rate to eachcomputer will decrease accordingly.
As standards change, it may be necessary to replace wireless cards and/or access points.
Lower wireless bandwidth means some applications such as video streaming will be moreeffective on a wired LAN.
Security is more difficult to guarantee and requires configuration.
Devices will only operate at a limited distance from an access point, with the distancedetermined by the standard used and buildings and other obstacles between the access point and the user.
