House explores wireless
The House of Representatives wants information to develop a wireless local area network for its House Mobile Computing Program. The network will cover committee hearing rooms and anterooms, conference rooms, self-scheduled meeting rooms, banquet rooms and cafeteria areas.
The House is looking for Internet access, intranet, e-mail, file and print services, and other network applications. The LAN also should provide user authentication, data confidentiality and detection and reporting, and, if possible, indicate unauthorized wireless infrastructure equipment.
Responses should be sent in Microsoft Word format as an e-mail attachment. Responses are due by Aug. 23. Contact Jim Caskey at email@example.com.
