ESOFT is pioneer in higher education providers in the Sri lanka. Esoft Metro campus building located in Colombo.
The located building is already facilitated with a planned Ethernet infrastructure that provided LAN connectivity and the Internet connectivity to various lab environments, test centers and student rooms within the building. The management requires to improve the network by taking it to the wireless level and the project focuses on a suitable solution to the requirement.
The Esoft Metro Campuses building had 8 floors which are sectioned according to specialized educational branches and it was agreed within the team in a brief discussion, to select floor no.2,3 & 4 as the area to be covered through the solution.

With the speedy social and economic development networks that has been progressing rapidly.
The aim of this coursework is to get full knowledge of WLANs and the basic processes of
designing a campus WLAN. Understanding usage patterns in a wireless local area network
(WLAN) is critical for those who develop, deploy and manage the WLAN technology. The
usage of wireless networks offer mobility and elimination of unsightly cables and utilize radio
waves or microwaves to maintain communication.
The basics of wireless connectivity has come of age, because it is considered as a viable, low
cost alternative, compared to the traditional wired technologies. The use of a wireless network
gives users the mobility to move around within a reasonably broad coverage area and still be
connected to the network. Most wireless local area networks (WLAN) nowadays use the 2.4
GHz or 5 GHz frequency band which is considered as the part of the radio frequency spectrum
that is reserved around the world for unlicensed devices
The use of technology is making rapid progress which as a result makes many things easier.
As the innovative thinking of persons is increasing day by day, new methods for wireless
