Security of wireless networks – how do hackers get in? 

When dealing with networks, both wired and wireless, we can’t fail to mention the security issue. In the case of wireless networks, many users are unaware of the hazards lurking when switching between networks and using unprotected, unverified wireless networks. This article will answer your questions on securing the Wi-Fi network and making it resistant […]

Wireless Network Security – How to Design Enterprise Wi-Fi?

In today’s post, we’ll cover the planning, design, and building of professional, Enterprise-grade wireless networks, i.e. advanced wireless networks. We’ll touch on the selection of equipment and components used in these professional networks. We’ll also review Wi-Fi access network protections in tandem with a component called Cisco ISE, which plays a role of a hub for […]

What can you learn from an ICT security audit?

Online data privacy and security is a particularly important topic when most of us work remotely. There are plenty of traces that we leave behind on the Internet, and we encounter cybercrime on a daily basis. We should, therefore, consider how we can protect ourselves against the loss of both personal data and key company information. The ICT audit is a certain component of the entire security policy. It is most often carried out in order to prevent threats that may occur in the future.

Wi-Fi 6: Q&A

What is Wi-Fi 6 (IEEE802.11ax)? How does it compare to Wi-Fi 5 (IEEE802.11ac)? Will older phones connect to Wi-Fi 6? The post combines the most frequently asked questions about Wi-Fi 6.

Wi-Fi issues: site-surveys and troubleshooting

Recently, we’ve been doing numerous site surveys and verification of Wi-Fi deployments in offices with more than 50APs per office in a managed setup (meaning that the APs are under the supervision of a wireless controller). In this post, I’d like to sketch an overview of the encountered issues and improvement suggestions.

Why Wi-Fi 6 (IEEE802.11ax) will be different than previous Wi-Fis?

The AP schedules the transmission according to the actual needs, and nobody wastes time on waiting and on collision. So, we end-up having the system that: is more robust towards low latency services; is more spectrally efficient; allows for actually use some QoS profiles; and coordinates the use of spectrum.

Wi-Fi Generations – new naming convention for WiFi

Wi-Fi Generations affect not only new releases, but also refer to the past amendments. Currently Wi-Fi Alliance has defined 6 generations. Each step is significant improvement in network performance and security. No more minor version changes that can cause only confusion.

Step in another direction in Wi-Fi? IEEE 802.11ax (High Efficiency WLAN)

The 802.11ax brings important features, focusing on network capacity, latency and range. High data rates are still in the picture, but rather in the background. Introducing OFDMA and using MU-MIMO allows AP to schedule data for multiple users simultaneously. This way, latency can be greatly decreased. With the new colors of the channels, frequencies can be spatially reused.

Wi-Fi Standards Evolution

Introduction First Wi-Fi networks appeared in late 90s and many of us use them ever since. During these years we could observe significant increase of throughput, but what is important, it is not only due to the ISP providing better link. Wi-Fi standard also evolved to keep up with the higher throughputs. If there will […]

How does OFDM work?

After discussing the main wireless transmission concept (How wireless works?), main channel propagation phenomena (What is pathloss? and What is shadowing?), and antenna configurations (What is MIMO?), let’s now take a look at one of the most commonly used transmission scheme nowadays, namely Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM). But, before we explain why do we […]
