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.
