I. Your employer, XelPharm, is a large manufacturer and distributor of generic, over-the-counter healthcare products. Its main campus consists of three buildings within two blocks of each other. Each building houses approximately 200 employees, including those in the following departments: Administration, Accounting, Research, Legal, Quality Control, Order Fulfillment, and Production.

In addition, XelPharm owns a large distribution warehouse approximately four miles away from the headquarters. Until now, its networks have relied entirely on wired connections. The company’s CIO (chief information officer) decided long ago that he would wait until wireless technology “settled down” before investing in it.

1. What can you tell him about the wireless standards that might convince him that now is the time to adopt wireless technology? Ans. An ac wireless modem can deliver two or three times the volume per second of data and, at least for the foreseeable future, can do it over longer distance. First it runs in the 5GHz spectrum range, which is less cluttered and competitive than the 2.4GHz band in today’s wireless gear mostly, inhabits.

2. Also, what can you tell him to convince him that wireless networking could improve the company’s productivity? Ans. Wireless technology has many advantages allowing user to share information faster without the need of wired connection. Also there can be upgrades without the need of much installing or moving wires. All computers and devices can connect wireless accessing real time information in any place in the building, improving competitiveness.

3. Which employees could make best use of wireless connections and how? Ans. Anyone can best use the wireless connection being able to connect 24/7 anywhere in building. Its best used if needed real time information like the research departments…...

4g Wireless

...4G Wireless Networks Since 2008, fourth generation (4G) wireless networks have been proclaiming faster speeds for internet connectivity than the third generation (3G) networks. However, upgrading to a 3G or 4G wireless network can be quite expensive. Nevertheless, those who find the need for speed and mobility may find that it is worth the added expense. The war is on between the two generations of networks but there is speculation as to which is truly faster and better. The following paragraphs will provide an overview of both wireless networks, and will include a contrast and compare of 3G wireless networks to 4G networks in relation to application and services, user perception, network architecture, and data throughput. The information offered will also differentiate between 4G LTE, 4G WiMax, and 4G WiBro networks based on upload and download speeds, user perceptions, backward compatibility, and service availability. The following paragraphs will also identify the competition between the 4G LTE carriers and why it has been so fierce, as well as how subscribers will benefit from this competition. When shopping for 3G and 4G wireless networks, consumers will have to comparison shop to find a service that will meet their particular needs. Today, most cell phone providers offer both 3G and 4G wireless service in conjunction with Internet service. Verizon, Sprint, and AT&T are just a few of the providers that use 3G as a standard mobile Internet service, in addition to...

This implementation takes place at the physical level (layer) of the OSI model  network structure. Examples of wireless networks include cell phone networks, Wi-Fi local networks and terrestrial microwave networks. Wireless network made up of There are two kinds of wireless networks: * An ad-hoc, or peer-to-peer wireless network * Access point Ad-hoc or peer-to-peer wireless network It consists of a number of computers each equipped with a wireless networking interface card. Each computer can communicate directly with all of the other wireless enabled computers. They can share files and printers this way, but may not be able to access wired LAN resources, unless one of the computers acts as a bridge to the wired LAN using special software.

...Wireless Technology BIS/221 Wireless Technology Technology has greatly evolved in the past 10 years. There was a time when a paper back book was more common than a cellular or wireless device. Today, however, wireless device are more and more common and are pretty much a must have. Wireless devices simplify how we perform daily task by being easier to access because we can carry these items with us. A few wireless devices that have made my life easier are my wireless printer, GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and a few wireless household products. Wireless technology has also allowed disabled individuals to enjoy activities that they normally cannot enjoy. The use of a wireless printer has made it easier to print documents either from my wireless computer or my cell phones. I no longer have to go into the computer room to complete these task. I honestly no longer need a computer room; because I have a wireless computer and printer I no longer have to be in a designated area to complete homework or perform task on the computer. I can now do those things from anywhere in my home. Wi-Fi has also made in possible to surf the web on my computer from anywhere there is a Wi-Fi connected. The use of Wi-Fi has eliminated the need to use cellular data in turn lowering my cell phone bill. The use of GPS has also made it easier to navigate to unfamiliar places by enabling me to easily get direction either from the GPS on my cell phone or a dedicated GPS......

...Introduction We have been hired to deploy a wireless network for Citizens First National Bank. We are going to design, test and deploy this network. Banks have been slow to adapt this technology because if the high security standards they must follow. Since security has been improved and the benefits are so great more and more companies are starting to deploy wireless networks. It the next couple pages I will go through the scope of the project along with the goals and requirements. There are some initial testing that we have to get down and setup so auditors will be able to test before we can deploy to all branches. By using auditors it helps protect the bank with a paper trail incase an incident ever happened. This would show that we have followed all requirements and made every possible attempt to protect our customers and employees. We will have 60 days to setup and test before we have to purchase equipment. This should provide plenty of time to get a location up and running and have their auditors in to do testing. After initial testing we will then put a plan in place to bring all branches online one at a time while sticking to the budget. Scope and Goals Scope The major driving force of this project is to add a wireless infrastructure to the entire bank that would allow seamless use between all branches, while maintaining the high security standards that the FCC requires to help protect the customers and employees of the bank.

...Individual: Wireless Signals Erwin Pancho IT/242 June 17, 2012 Wireless Signals First of all lets define what a wireless signal is. Wireless internet/technology creates a network by sending radio-frequency signals between your computers to share information. This allows wireless networking technology to happen without the use of wires and makes it easier for other computers on the same network to communicate with one another. In wireless networking, a peer-to-peer or in other words point-to-point wireless network means that each computer can communicate with every other computer on that same network. Wireless networks that use client/servers have an access point. An access point is a wired controller that receives and transmits data to the wireless adapters installed in each of the computers. There are four main types of wireless technologies which include but not limited too are Bluetooth, IrDA, HomeRF, and Wi-Fi (wireless Fidelity). Bluetooth wireless technology allows users to enable links between their mobile computers, mobile phones, portable handheld devices, and Internet connectivity, which require no wires to be involved or that is needed. It is mostly used for devices such as cell phones, PDAs, wireless headsets, computer hardware, headphones, MP3 players, etc. Bluetooth technology is supported by application and product development in a broad range of market subdivisions, which include software......
