The proliferation of laptop computers within the organization combined with increasing need to mobilize the labor force have fuelled the demand for wireless networks. Until recently, wireless technology was a patchwork of incompatible systems from a variety of vendors. The technology was slow, expensive and used for mobile applications or environments where cabling was impractical or impossible. With the maturing of industry standards and the deployment of lightweight wireless networking hardware across a broad market section, wireless technology has come of age. Lowered prices and interoperability have attracted many organizations to the idea, especially in the retail, financial, education, and health-care fields. The availability of wireless networking and wireless Local Area Networks (LANs) can extend the freedom and mobility of a network user, solve various problems associated with hard-wired networks and even reduce network deployment costs in some cases. This thesis provides an introduction to wireless LAN technology and the wireless LAN design for the Software Metrics Laboratory in Ingersoll 158, with particular emphasis on the communication requirements and protocols for the implementation of the wireless LAN extension to the existing wired LAN.
