Wireless solutions for networking are becoming more common. Wireless solutions use the 2GHz and 5GHz radio bands to transmit data through the air. The current standards, 802.11a, 802.11b, and 802.11g suffer from weak security, and are much slower than their wired counterparts, but offer freedom and the ability to transmit over short distances without the need for a lease-line from your telephone carrier. With the proper expertise, wireless networking can be secured to an acceptable level for all but the highest security environments, and its implementation can save thousands of dollars in cabling and recurring telco fees. Atlantis Consulting runs wireless network in-house and currently maintains wireless networks in the field.
