Wireless Networking

The Bad

  • Management issues: need keys (or else run "in the clear" naked!)

  • RFI:
    • quote from a NRAO Scientist:
      "There's something implicitly immoral about NRAO using this stuff"

    • Banned in GB (and likely at the VLA)

    • Problematic for the CDL (shielded rooms, new building, $$$)

  • Interference from 2.4GHz cordless phones, microwave ovens, etc.

  • See "The Ugly..."
