Wireless connectivity offers users a high degree of mobility and provides another networking option when traditional wired networks are impractical. The Microsoft® Windows® Server 2003 operating system provides the networking services needed to deploy a secure and manageable wireless local area network (WLAN) infrastructure within an enterprise environment. The deployment of WLANs — the primary wireless networking support for an enterprise environment provided by Windows Server 2003 and the Microsoft® Windows® XP operating system — is detailed in this chapter.
