Wireless in the Retail Industry

I have come across a few of my clients in the retail industry that have both bar code scanners and cash registers that connect to the wireless network. I just wonder how other retail giants deploy wireless networks considering the weaknesses in WEP. Most small bar code scanners don't support EAP and some may not even support WEP.

Any scenarios that could be thrown at me in terms of deploying a wireless newtork in retail industry with wireless bar code scanners and cash registers.

Thanks in advance!

Re: Wireless in the Retail Industry

Cisco's new WLAN security architecture goes well beyond traditional WLAN security to provide the following enhancements:

* Centralized user-based authentication integrated with network logon

* Dynamic WEP key distribution when integrated with Cisco AccessControl Server 2000 version 2.6

* Broad client and operating system support

* Framework for future security policies and integration of security into other network services such as mobility and QoS

The following is a good document which will give some WLAN case studies.
