Putting the 'enterprise' into wireless LANs
As wireless LANs have rocketed into the consciousness of corporate managers in the past year or so, existing and prospective vendors in that space have been quick to point out how not to build a WLAN. Stay away, they say, from the temptation of building your network using a shopping cart full of those $100 access points from your local Circuit City. Enterprise WLANs need more. Recent examples prove the case.
While a basic, single access-point WLAN servicing a handful of clients is simplicity itself, expanding that network with a second access point to handle a few more clients over a little larger area causes an immediate spike in complexity.
