Syngress Publishing Announces the Release of “Managing and Securing a Cisco Structured Wireless-Aware Network”

Rockland, MA May 10, 2004–Syngress Publishing, Inc., today announced the publication of “Managing and Securing a Cisco Structured Wireless- Aware Network” (ISBN: 1932266917). The book is the latest addition to Syngress’s growing library of titles related to Cisco’s wireless networking initiative. It is written for enterprise network managers charged with extending access and security to a growing range of wireless clients. It clearly illustrates how these managers can take full advantage of the suite of products and methodologies encompassed by the Cisco Structured Wireless-Aware Network (CSWAN) initiative and meet the need for highly available and secure wireless access.

Chris Williams, President of Syngress Publishing, said, “For the last few years, many enterprise network managers have avoided opening up the corporate network to wireless access. During that period, however, wireless employees have opened up their own rogue access points, circumventing user, group, and security policies. De-facto WLANs have evolved. The Cisco Structured Wireless-Aware Network initiative recognizes this reality. It provides managers with the tools to incorporate these users and devices into the enterprise, and this is exactly the book they will need to successfully deploy CSWAN.”

Chapters include:

Wired versus Wireless and Wireless-Aware LANs, Designing Wireless Aware LANs, WLAN Roaming, IP Multicast in a Wireless LAN, WLAN Guest Network Access, Implementing Cisco Wireless LANs, WLAN Security Consideration, WLAN Rouge AP Detection and Mitigation, Wireless LAN VLANs, and WLAN Quality of Service (QoS).

ISBN: 1-932266-91-7
PRICE: $59.95 U.S.
