This week we focus on introducing wireless technology in networking.
Learn to configure wireless devices in a network for use.
As a networking specialist you must be able to choose the correct wireless technologies to integrate into a network, and choose how to properly integrate them without creating security risks to the organization.
As a member of a team, you worked on requirements and stakeholder analysis for your networking project. Use what you learned and apply that to your project.
·Update your project with stakeholder and requirement information.
oIdentify the needs of the organization to include a public wireless network for customers in the environment and update the project accordingly.
