FWL 1.09-5

Corporate Data access and end-user Mobility

The first is the ability to easily add network access in areas where installation of wired connections is difficult or expensive. The second is to provide easy mobility for the wireless user within the corporate building or campus environment. Wireless networking is typically slower than wired networking and therefore cannot always provide a direct replacement to wired networking. Wireless provides mobility, accessibility, and convenience, but can lack in performance and throughput. Wireless should rarely be considered for distribution or core roles, except for building-to-building bridging

Network extension to remote areas

The cost of installing network cabling for each computer is expensive, and in many environments running cable or fiber is difficult due to building design or aesthetic restrictions.

BridgingBuilding-to-Building Connectivity

- A wireless building-to-building bridge requires that the two buildings have a clear RF line of sight between them; - there are no monthly service fees since you own the equipment; - point-to-point bridge or three or more buildings can be networked together using a point-to-multipoint solution;

Wireless ISP (WISP)

- Wireless Internet service providers (WISPs) deliver Internet services via wireless networking; Instead of directly cabling each subscriber, a WISP can provide services via RF communications from central transmitters.

Mobile Office Networking

Mobile home offices are used for many different purposes: as construction site offices, as temporary offices during construction or after a disaster, or as temporary classrooms to accommodate unplanned changes in student population.

Education
Children are
Curious Can be destructive

Antennas and access points should hidden to avoid damage


A wireless network also allows students to connect to the network and work on schoolwork anywhere in the building without having to worry whether a wired network jack is nearby or whether someone else is already using it

Warehousing
Multiple Users
High usage Inventory

Inventory types

Due to the vast space and the mobile nature of the employees in these environments, companies saw the need to provide mobile network access to their employees so they could more effectively perform their jobs.
