Wireless IntegrationWireless LANs enable users to establish and maintain a mobile network connection throughout or between buildings, without the limitations of wires or cables. We can provide a family of wireless LAN products that combine the mobility and flexibility users want from a wireless LAN product with the throughput and security they demand from a business LAN. Until recently, wireless local-area network (LAN) products were used primarily in certain vertical markets-such as retail, education, and healthcare-where mobile users with a need for LAN access were satisfied with data-transfer rates of 2 megabits per second (Mbps) or less. To make wireless LANs more "mainstream," customers pressed vendors to develop a high-speed wireless LAN standard that would encourage interoperability, reduce prices, and provide the bandwidth needed by today's business applications. In 1999 the IEEE ratified an extension to a previous standard. Called IEEE 802.11x, it defines the standard for wireless LAN products that operate at an Ethernet-like data rate up to 54 Mbps, a speed that makes wireless LAN technology viable in enterprises and other large organizations. Our Wireless LAN Specialists are recognized for their knowledge and expertise in building and maintaining end-to-end wireless network connections throughout or between buildings, without the limitations of wires or cables. These specialists focus on the enterprise and medium-sized business providing assessment, design and implementation services that combine the mobility and flexibility users want from a wireless LAN solution with the throughput and security users demand from a business LAN.
