Advanced Wireless Tutorial
Tim Pozar
Glenn Fleishman, Unsolicited Pundit
Matthew Gast, Trapeze

Track: Emerging Technology Tutorial
Date: Tuesday, April 22
Time: 8:30am - 12:00pm
Location: Winchester

Wireless networks can be plug and play, but the most interesting and useful applications of networks involve more sophistication. In this tutorial, learn about:

  • New protocols: 802.11a, e, f, g, h, and i; WPA; 802.1x/EAP; EAP-TLS, EAP-TTLS, and PEAP
  • Spectrum policy and legality: what the law says about unlicensed use of the 2.4 and 5 GHz bands, and how to meet the letter of the regulations
  • Spanning the distance: building and deploying systems to deliver Internet dial tone to square miles not just square cubicles, including mesh networks, long-range point-to-point, and phase-array beams.
  • Network authentication: corporations need to tie in their existing legacy user management systems with new wireless deployments; making secure connections between untrusted clients across open networks to provide user authentication.
  • Security: the current state of wireless networks leaves little protection from built-in link layer encryption; new protocols will change all that without requiring more sophistication on the part of users.
