Through this case study I am going to be investigating the different wireless communications that are available, and also how they could benefit Staffordshire Health Authority. I will look at previous and current wireless standards, their differences and the speeds they can provide. I will also consider the best standards to use when working with a network to support VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol). Throughout the case study I will talk about the technologies that could work within our network environment, and others that would not be suitable or effective. Finally I will look at VoIP and how it will impact on Staffordshire Health Authority. Discussion of Wireless Communications When looking at wireless communications, there are many…show more content…
Although I have looked at Bluetooth, and some of its features, it is not a viable solution that we would be able to implement within our network design for Staffordshire Health Authority due to the types of devices we are using within the environment, they would be better supported using a wireless connection, other then point-to-point links offered by Bluetooth. Cellular Broadband is used to access Internet on mobile devices, such as mobile phones, tablets and mobile dongles. There are currently three different technologies used to access the Internet from a mobile device, these include 2G, 3G and the current 4G. Cellular broadband is a subscription-based service, which usually comes as part of your mobile tariff from your provider. However, you can get separate tariffs just for cellular broadband, these are used in laptops and tablets to provide Internet access on the move. ITU Telecom World research indicates that 90% of the world is covered by a 2G signal; where as 45% of the world has a 3G signal (www.itu.int). This shows that there is a high demand for this service, and it is a very popular option to access Internet while bring mobile. This type of service is something that could be incorporated within our health authority network, for example a 4G connection can be used as a backup internet backbone as well as employees using the service to access
