Abstract

Wireless technology is very popular and ever growing because of its convenience. Many enterprises such as the University of Southern Queensland (USQ) are integrating Wireless into their network infrastructure. However, the performance and security of Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) is a major concern. Wireless devices with different standards would perform differently with each other. Furthermore, different security implementations would have different effects on the network performance. Current Wireless security protocols may provide adequate protection but they may also deteriorate the performance of the network. In conjunction, Wireless networking is constantly being researched and tested for better performance and security. As evidence, the developments and integration of various Wireless security standards to date. They would complement the emergence of high performing Wireless standards in the future.
