Assignment 2: The Need for Wireless Standards and Protocols

The networking field, to include wireless networking, defines many standards to govern network and wireless network operations. It is important to become familiar with the standards organizations and their current standards, standards that are currently being revised, and new standards being considered.

Write a four to five (4-5) page paper in which you:
Select one (1) IEEE and one (1) ISO standard that impacts wireless technologies. Describe the impact that each standard has in wireless technologies on the planning and development of corporate networks.
Assess the breadth of the standards provided by IEEE and ISO and address where advancements or enhancements are needed.
Select one (1) formal and one (1) de facto wireless standard. Assess the relative importance of that standard and address if the standard will remain stable, if there are enhancements that are currently needed, or if the standard will soon become obsolete.
Use at least four (4) quality resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and similar Websites do not qualify as quality resources.

Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:
Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA or school-specific format. Check with your professor for any additional instructions.
Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in the required assignment page length.

The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:
•Discuss the role of standards in wireless networks.
•Analyze the network protocols and security mechanisms in wireless networks.
•Use technology and information resources to research issues in wireless networks.
Write clearly and concisely about wireless computing topics using proper writing mechanics and technical style conventions.
