Question and answer
Q: What are some of the drawbacks of widespread distribution of free WLAN?
A: Cellular technology has long tantalized us with the potential of anywhere, anytime data access, but we see the broad deployment of WLAN access points ultimately delivering on this promise. [ Worried about throughput? If 11 Mbps isn't fast enough for you, 22 Mbps, 54 Mbps and even higher speeds will soon be available at little extra cost. As attractive as the WLAN option is, however, IT managers
must confront complex issues. One is how to deploy a network today that can be upgraded easily in the future. Another is security. A firewall costing thousands of dollars can be completely compromised by a single incorrectly configured access point, even when that access point is behind a brick wall. WLANs could also fall victim to their own success as multiple network standards, including Bluetooth, start to interfere with one another. There are also IP addressing issues, and locating access points across subnets makes it impossible to roam from one location to another without mobility middleware. The good news is that solutions exist for most of these problems, and forthcoming standards will address many of today's limitations. WLAN technology is good today and will only get better, but to be successful in using it, you must carefully navigate through an evolving landscape. Read full answer here- ]
