:Wireless technologies represent a rapidly emerging area of growth and importancefor providing ubiquitous access to the network for all of the campus community.Students, faculty and staff increasingly want un-tethered network access from general- purpose classrooms, meeting rooms, auditoriums, and even the hallways of campus buildings. There is interest in creating mobile computing labs utilizing laptop computersequipped with wireless Ethernet cards. Wireless technologies can both support theinstitution mission and provide cost-effective solutions. Wireless is being adopted for many new applications: to connect computers, to allow remote monitoring and dataacquisition, to provide access control and security, and to provide a solution for environments where wires may not be the best solution. In this paper we differentiate between pure data applications in wireless local area networks (WLANs) and data, voice,and video converged in broadband wireless. We also briefly discussed Wi-Fi andBluetooth, the emerging wireless technologies. In homes these networks will enable anew class of intelligent electronic devices that can interact with each other and with theInternet in addition to providing connectivity between computers, phones, andsecurity/monitoring systems. The exponential growth of cellular telephone use andwireless Internet access has led to great optimism about wireless technology .
The term wireless technology is generally used for mobile IT equipment. Itencompasses cellular telephones, personal digital assistants (PDA's), and wirelessnetworking. Examples of wireless technology include GPS units, garage door openers ,wireless computer mice and keyboards, satellite television and cordless telephones.Wireless networks have significantly impacted the world as far back as World War II.With the use of wireless networks, information could be sent oversees or behind enemylines easily and quickly and was more reliable. Since then wireless networks havecontinued to develop and its uses have significantly grown. Cellular phones are part of huge wireless network systems. Sending information over seas is only possible throughwireless network systems using satellites and other signals to communicate across theworld. People and businesses use wireless networks to send and share data quicklywhether it be in a small office building or across the world.Using radio waves to keep computers connected, a wireless network is thenew way of networking rather than relying on older copper line connections. Wirelessnetworks allow to eliminate messy cables. Wireless connections offer moremobility,Wireless networks in terms of internet connections, are typically slower thanthose that are directly connected through an Ethernet cable. Type of security for wirelessnetworks is WPA which stands for Wi-Fi Protected Access. WPA provides more securityto wireless networks than a WEP (Wireless Equivalency Privacy)security set up does.Theuse of firewalls will help with security breaches which can help to fix security problemsin some wireless networks that are more vulnerable. The vision of wirelesscommunications supporting information exchange between people or devices is thecommunications frontier of the next few decades, and much of it already exists in someform. Wireless networks will connect palmtop, laptop, and desktop computers anywherewithin an office building or campus, as well as from the corner cafe.Wirelessentertainment will permeate the home and any place that people congregate. Videoteleconferencing will take place between buildings that are blocks or continents apart,Wireless video will enable remote classrooms, remote training facilities, and remotehospitals anywhere in the world.
