The introduction of Internet technology is changing the way people communicate, work and live. In business environments, individuals are using electronic networks instead of the traditional methods to accomplish their goals. Furthermore, as more industries implement new applications of technology, the pressure on employees and consumers to acquire new skills increases. The result is an urgent need for higher learning institutions to adopt computer and technology protocols that leverage network resources to deliver on demand services. As an option, institutions are turning to the capabilities of wireless technology to create wireless network campuses. Although it appears to be an ideal solution, both the challenges and the opportunities require careful consideration.
