Campus/Wide Area Wi-Fi Wireless LAN (LAN) Applications

Between buildings

The most common use of wireless LAN (WLAN) bridges and routers is to link networks between buildings. These buildings can be across the street from each other or miles apart. For example, a utility company has two buildings across a parking lot in a major metropolitan area. The cost to survey, trench, and repave the parking lot could run as high as $200,000. A T1 link in this area would cost about $16,000 per year including monthly line charges. A wireless LAN (WLAN) bridge or router link can be installed much faster at a much lower cost.

Campus and cross town environments

Corporate, municipal, and university campuses with multiple buildings requiring interconnectivity will find wireless LAN (WLAN) bridges and routers an efficient and cost-effective alternative to leased lines or laying cables.

  • Universities are using Wi-Fi wireless LANs (WLANs) to cover their campuses and dormitories, and using wireless wide area links to quickly connect LANs in dormitories to their central computing center.
  • As corporations expand into nearby buildings, across industrial parks or across town, wireless LAN (WLAN) bridges and routers quickly re-establish their vital network connections.
  • Public schools are using Wi-Fi wireless LANs (WLANs) for learning centers, and to connect buildings such as portables on campuses.  They are using wireless LAN (WLAN) bridges and routers to connect their elementary, middle, and high schools back to the main administration headquarters. Since spread spectrum can travel long distances, many MIS departments can establish virtual networks covering all of their schools.
  • Fire departments are making use of the wireless LAN (WLAN) bridges and routers to connect their various stations back to the central computing facility.

Temporary LANs

  • Wi-Fi Wireless LANs (WLANs) are perfect for workgroups moving to new facilities not yet wired into the company LAN.

  • Wi-Fi Wireless LANs (WLANs) are perfect for factories where retooling and redesign of the manufacturing floor requires flexible LAN bridging.

  • Wi-Fi Wireless LANs (WLANs) are perfect for construction sites where wired connections are impractical and the LANs may need to be relocated often.
