13 Georgia College & State University Georgias Public Liberal Arts University The Components

14 Georgia College & State University Georgias Public Liberal Arts University Wireless Network Components Wireless Access Points 95 Enterasys RoamAbout R2 180 Omni-directional Antennas Cables, Amplifiers, Splitters Bridge Link to Perimeter Areas Mounted on Radio Tower Wireless Network Interface Cards (NIC) (Demonstrated Compatibility) SMC, Cisco, Enterasys, Compaq, D-Link, Dell, Orinoco Radius Servers Funk Steel Belted Version 3 - Solaris Equipment Supported Windows 2000, 98, NT, XP, ME, MAC OS X PDA – iPAQ CE 3.0

15 Georgia College & State University Georgias Public Liberal Arts University Laptops, PDAs & Desktops

16 The Security BILL HUSTED The Atlanta Journal and Constitution On a quick drive through Atlanta ---from its residential streets to the downtown business districts--- even a klutz of a computer hacker has literally hundreds of chances to view everything from your credit card information to confidential business

17 Georgia College & State University Georgias Public Liberal Arts University Focus on Security GC&SU announces WLAN Includes future plans for enhanced security Wireless security problems close to home? Atlanta TV reports possible WLAN security breach at a key location GC&SU temporarily curtails WLAN access Expedites plans for security solution Meetinghouse Solution 802.1X protocol required for all users of the WLAN Multi-platform support Interoperability Enhanced security – Beta Program

18 Georgia College & State University Georgias Public Liberal Arts University Meetinghouse Data Communications

19 Georgia College & State University Georgias Public Liberal Arts University The Challenges Immaturity of testing equipment Pioneering efforts … Traffic simulation Historical buildings Camouflaged installation and transmission Roof top antennas (white cabling blending into architecture) Penetration issues in older buildings and the great outdoors Enforcing networking policies Required 802.1X security software (manual configuration) Required 128 bit WEP NICs compatible with RoamAbout R2 Mixed operating systems, NICs, and firmware versions Dealing with users denied network access

20 Georgia College & State University Georgias Public Liberal Arts University Next Steps - Continued Success Continue Partnership Collaborative development Geographical Expansion Main Street, Milledgeville, GA New Campus Residence Apartments The Historic District Rural Georgia Feature Expansion Enhanced wireless security PDAs - campus police & physical plant Innovation contest – Best Practices

21 Georgia College & State University Georgias Public Liberal Arts University Lifespan of b, a, g, ? Upgradeability Compatibility Expanding availability of end user devices Competition Signal interference Regulatory restrictions Funding to stay current Differences between higher education and the corporate environment The digital divide between the have and have not institutions The Future Network Issues

22 Georgia College & State University Georgias Public Liberal Arts University Allow time for researching and evaluating emerging technologies It will take longer than you thought it would!!! Real life in higher education is not the same as real life in the corporate world Homogeneous hardware deployment streamlines the effort Be prepared to consider external factors The final product will be the result of continuous reengineering Partnerships require an ongoing, open communication plan If you build it They WILL come The Lessons Learned

23 Georgia College & State University Georgias Public Liberal Arts University Mobility and seamless coverage Flexibility for educational locations Every classroom becomes an electronic classroom Reduces overload on lab facilities No Is this a wireless area? questions Addresses the Total College Experience Opportunities for innovative activities Opportunities for cooperative corporate interaction Network contingency/redundancy Take the office to the students Develop Learning Communities And The Benefits

24 Georgia College & State University Georgias Public Liberal Arts University Its convenient. You dont have to have a plug. You can eat lunch or be on the front campus conversing with friends and download your class notes or get the professors actual lesson. Bo Luttrell, Chemistry Major The Real Story
