For this, the university wants to install one Access Point in each department’s faculty office which is situated in three separate blocks / buildings within the premises of the university’s main building. All the access points will be connected to a Wireless Distribution System (WDS) which will be further connected to an Internet Gateway. The WLAN will enable the faculty members to connect their laptops, tablets and mobile phones in the network to gain the Wi-Fi Internet and network resource sharing services even while moving from one department to another. In order to prevent from any un-authorized access to WLAN, the university management wants a smooth running and a well secured network.
