Wavelan: AT&T, Digital, and Solectek offerings are based on radio technology originally developed by NCR Corporation. NCR was bought by ATT, and I think is currently being divested into something new. Wavelan users:
  1. Syracuse University Good discussion of performance issues.
  2. Scalable Computing Lab Remote Server uses Wavelan.
  3. Columbia: Mobile computing laboratory seems to be using Wavelans.
  4. Rutgers DATAMAN uses 2 Mbps NCR Wavelan-AT cards http://paul.rutgers.edu/~acharya/lab.html
  5. FSU use of Wavelans?

Netweek: Wireless LAN yields horizontal mobility [0.8406]

Outline: Wireless LAN yields horizontal mobility

Abstract: October 16, 1995 What PC Week Labs learned when we cut the 10BaseT cables and went wireless By Terry Tam Wireless LANs cut traditional wired ties between a workstation and hub, bringing mobility to movers and shakers and forcing a paradigm shift in how IS managers view their world. Not to be confused with the more popular cellular modem market (linking to RadioMail or WyndMail, for instance), spread-spectrum wireless technologies are designed for connectivity to a LAN or for the... Wireless LANs provide the same benefits of continuous connectivity to the corporate backbone as cellular modems, only a wireless LAN rescues corridor cruisers rather than road warriors.
