Implementing Wireless Network

The International Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) sets out standards for wireless networks. Its earlier standards, 802.11a, 802.11b, and 802.11g had minimal data rate of between 54 and 600 Mbit/s. These earlier standards also had lower gross bit rate and higher maximum throughput. By using four spatial streams at 40 MHz channel width, 802.11n has improved security, predictability, reliability, and performance of the network. Therefore, in choosing technology for the new wireless network, one considers throughput-data rates magnitudes, nature of spatial multiplexing, channel bonding capacities, number of users, data recovery possibility, and capacity for web-browsing. To create a faster network, access points and antenna should be placed in such a way that their cells do not interfere, should be placed away from obstacles and possibility of APs to combine two 20 MHz channels into one 40 MHz channel. Since wireless networks pose a greater security challenge than cabled networks, the WAPs and routers would make use of MAC address filtering to control snoopers’ access into the network. Other security features, such as 128-bit WPA and WEP, can be used to secure the network by encrypting the traffic.
