Wireless lan technology, Computer Networking

The are various limitations of employing Wireless LAN technology in any multistory building in middle of Melbourne or any other big city are:

• Range: The main problem of Wireless LAN technology employed at a multistory building is the range of the network. Anonymous (2007-2009) cites that "The typical range of a common802.11g network with standard equipment is on the order of tens of meters."

The technology is sufficient only for home structure but not for larger structure and for obtaining additional ranges, there is requirements of purchasing repeaters, additional access points and repeaters etc which is call for additional cost.

• Safety and Security: As Wireless LAN technology uses the radio waves for the data transmission in the system. These radio waves are highly sensitive that it can be interfered with the waves coming from other devices or high-tech equipments which is not safe and secure for data transmission over the network. The Access points of WLAN technology are not deployed with encryption which are highly vulnerable and can be easily attacked by the hackers.

• Lack of high quality media streaming: When there are multiple users or ports connected to same access point then the bandwidth get divided into all which creates problem and provides low transfer rate. The speed of the Wireless LAN is the main issue when this technology is implemented in a multistory building as there are multiple users connected. A Wireless LAN has a range of 100 feet without breaking the connection which is not a good way for network in a multistory building.

• Cost: The cost is the main issue for Wireless LAN technology because there is need of installation of cable wires, access points, adapters, wireless connection, etc which depends upon the wireless technology used.
