Answers to Review Questions

1. A, B, D. The goal of fxed mobile convergence is to enable the user to have a single device

with a single telephone number and to enable the user to roam between different networks,

taking advantage of the least expensive network that is available.

2. C, D. Municipal and transportation networks are both specifc types of public hotspots.

enforcement and frst
responder networks are hotspot
type networks, but they are not


for public use.

3. C. Because of the potential for interference and the importance of preventing it, hospitals

often have a person responsible for keeping track of frequencies used within the organization.

Some municipalities are starting to do this as

not just for law enforcement, but for all

of their wireless needs, because they often use wireless technologies for SCADA networks,

traffc cameras, traffc lights, two
way radios, point to point bridging, hotspots, and more.

4. D. Since cruise ships

are often not near land where cellular or WiMAX uplink is available,

it is necessary to use a satellite uplink to connect the ship to the Internet.

5. B, D. Fixed mobile convergence allows roaming between Wi
Fi networks and cellular


networks, choosing the available network that is least expensive.

6. D. When designing a warehouse network, the networking devices are often barcode scanners

that do not capture much data, so high capacity and throughput are not typically needed.

e the data
transfer requirements are so low, these networks are typically designed to

provide coverage for large areas. Security is always a concern; however, it is not usually a

design criteria.

7. A, D. Corporations typically install a WLAN to provide
easy mobility and/or access to

areas that are diffcult or extremely expensive to connect via wired networks. Although

providing connectivity to the Internet is a service that the corporate wireless network

offers, it is not the driving reason for instal
ling the wireless network.

8. A, C, D. The telephone company, cable providers, and WISPs are all examples of companies

that provide last
mile services to users and businesses.

9. B. The main purpose of SOHO networks is to provide a gateway to the Internet

10. A, B, D. Mobile offce networking solutions are temporary solutions that include all of the

options listed except for the remote sales offce, which would more likely be classifed as a

SOHO installation.

11. A, D. Warehousing and manufacturing envir
onments typically have a need for mobility, but

their data transfers are typically very small. Therefore, their networks are often designed for

high coverage rather than high capacity.

12. D. Hotspot providers are not likely to provide data encryption. I
t is more diffcult to

deploy, and there is no beneft or business reason for them to provide it.

13. A, B, C. Manufacturing plants are typically fxed environments and are better served by

installing permanent access points.

14. B, C, D. Point
t, hub and spoke, and star all describe the same communication

technology, which connects multiple devices by using a central device. Point
point com

munications connects two devices.

15. C. Most of the 802.11 implementations used FHSS, with industrial (warehousing and

manufacturing) companies being some of the biggest implementers. Their requirement of

mobility with low data
transfer speeds was ideal for using the technology.

16. C.
To make wireless access easy for the subscriber, hotspot vendors typically deploy authen

tication methods that are easy to use but that do not provide data encryption. Therefore, to

ensure security back to your corporate network, the use of an IPSec VPN
is necessary.

17. A, C, D. VoWiFi is a common use of 802.11 technology in a medical environment, providing

immediate access to personnel no matter where they are in the hospital. Real
time location

system (RTLS) solutions using 802.11 RFID tags for inven
tory control are also commonplace.

WLAN medical carts are used to monitor patient information and vital signs.

18. A, C. The installation of multiple point
point bridges is either to provide higher through

put or to prevent a single point of failure.
Care must be taken in arranging channel and

antenna installations to prevent self
inficted interference.

19. A, B, C. Healthcare providers often have many other devices that use RF communications,

and therefore, RF interference is a concern. Fast access
along with secure and accurate access

is critical in healthcare environments. Faster access can be performed without faster speed.

The mobility of the technology will satisfy the faster access that is typically needed.

20. A. Public hotspots are most con
cerned about ensuring that only valid users are allowed

access to the hotspot. This is performed using authentication.
