Local Area Networking

A Local Area Network (LAN) is a computer network covering a local area, like a home, office, or group of buildings. Current LANs are most likely to be based on switched IEEE 802.3 Ethernet running at 10, 100 or 1,000 Mbit/s or on Wi-Fi technology . The defining characteristics of LANs in contrast to WANs are: their much higher data rates; smaller geographic range; and that they do not require leased telecommunication lines.

White Paper Published By: Aerohive     Published Date: Feb 06, 2008
Yesterday’s fat access points and legacy wireless LANs typically can’t handle mission-critical, real-time applications, nor do they have a migration path to 802.11n. Aerohive Networks has developed a new controller-less architecture that provides an innovative way to handle tomorrow’s wireless challenges – like voice over WLAN and migrating to 802.11n – without costing you a fortune. This paper discusses the benefits of this approach and the key underlying technologies of cooperative control, including best path forwarding and policy enforcement at the edge.
