Infrastructure of a Wireless Local Area Network: T.Ü. Mehmet Akif Ersoy Lecture Center

Deniz Gezgin, Ercan Buluş

Abstract


Abstract

Wireless Local Area Networks (WLAN), is a network structure which is used primarily for establishing connections between servers, printers and other endpoint devices found within smaller scale areas, such as a building or a group of buildings. These structures offer the superior advantages of shared access for applications and devices, means of file-transfer and electronic mail communication to users found within areas which include cafeterias, dormitories or miscellaneous intra-campus applications. The use of WLAN applications has become increasingly common with the integration of these structures into wired networks -especially with intra-campus wired infrastructures- and of new wireless devices that support high-speed communication, thanks to the introduction of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) 802.11n standard. In this paper the network infrastructure of T.Ü. Mehmet Akif Ersoy Lecture Center -and the established WLAN structure therein- shall be discussed. Experiences and examples obtained from this application will be given along with samples from wireless security policies employed.

Keywords: 802.11n, WLAN, Wireless Security, Repeater, Metro Ethernet, WLAN Design.
