Wireless technology is not new and has been widely used in many industries for years.  Manufacturing, courier services, and retail are just some of the industries successfully using wireless for inventory control, package tracking, and pricing applications to increase productivity and streamline procedures.  In the past, wireless technology was used for dedicated applications, but this is rapidly changing with the advent of wireless LAN standards and 802.11 technologies.

The popularity of wireless networking is growing and users have recognized the many benefits of using mobile technology.  Wireless networks can provide new connectivity to places that were once hostile to traditional wired networks.  Access to the Internet and corporate data files while roaming freely throughout the enterprise has been proven to improve productivity and communications.  Employees are now demanding wireless service.

With the popularity of mobile computing devices such as laptops and PDA’s growing, the demand for enterprise class wireless LAN solutions is increasing quickly.  The ability to access applications to check email, schedule meetings, and to conduct business from anywhere in the enterprise and at anytime is a reality with combination of wired and wireless LAN technology.  The benefits of wireless are many:

  • True mobility - the means to conduct business without physical cable attachment to the network
  • Increased productivity - continuous access to information 24x7
  • Lower cabling costs – can eliminate the need for new cable plants or extensions of existing cabling
  • New network access – provides network access where it was previously difficult to deploy traditional wired LANs (e.g. manufacturing, warehousing, temporary office space, leased buildings, etc.)
  • Broad OS support – Windows, Macintosh, Palm OS, etc.
  • Easy installation
  • Rapid deployment
  • Lower long term costs

Despite the many benefits of wireless technology, enterprise users are only beginning to adopt wireless LANs.  The challenge of providing mobility and easy access to corporate information for enterprise users while maintaining data security over open air waves has held back many enterprise deployments.

Unlike wired networks, wireless networks transmit their data over open air waves – through walls, ceilings, and floors – giving possible access to anyone within range of the radio waves.  The lack of strong security in early implementations of 802.11b technology using Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) security showed the danger and ease of how wireless LANs could be compromised -  giving enterprises no confidence in deploying immature wireless LAN technology.

With modern wireless technology and the latest IEEE standards, many barriers to early wireless adoption have been addressed.  Strong authentication, data privacy, packet integrity checks, and increased transmission speeds are now available in enterprise class wireless LAN solutions – allowing enterprises to implement consistent security and integrity over both wired and wireless LANs with confidence.

Gigabit Ethernet Over CAT 3- CAT 5- Save Thousands On Re-Wiring Cost-Recent developments have changed the way the industry looks at Gigabit Ethernet. Cost barriers and problems working on existing wiring have been eliminated, resulting in widespread adoption. See what applications are driving Gigabit deployment, how productivity is being increased and what migration strategies are recommended-WideBand has been a leading manufacturer of Gigabit-over-copper networking since 1994 and was a developer of the first pre-standard products. When the standard began to be formed, WideBand president Dr. Roger E. Billings was an active member of the steering committee that developed the technologies found in today’s IEEE 802.3ab Gigabit Ethernet. Many of the underlying technologies of the standard, including the method for full duplex transmission and the elimination of data collisions, were originally developed at WideBand.

WideBand products are made in the USA to the highest quality standards and possess a uniquely robust signal that allows full Gigabit bandwidth even on less than perfect installs of Category 5 and 5e cabling. WideBand can deliver Gigabit connections up to 200 meters on Category 5 cable and 100 meters over Category 3 cable. To show signal headroom, WideBand Gigabit products are even demonstrated working over barbed wire!

WideBand Corporation has developed a line of Ethernet Products that operate 100 Meters over standard Category 5 cable. There is no longer any need to rewire with CAT 6before upgrading to Gigabit Ethernet. There is video available that shows that Wideband Layer 2 Switches can operate at Gigabit Ethernet Speeds consistantly within the LAN OSI layer 2 environment by using CAT 3 cable and even barbed wire!
