Trapeze Compliant With IEEE 802.11i Wireless LAN Security Standards

Company embraces standards it help set in wireless LAN security to support multi-vendor environments.

Trapeze Networks says it included in its offerings much of the IEEE 802.11i standard, which was approved on June 24. The standard will support multi-vendor security elements in wireless LANs.

As a result of the standard's ratification, WLANs now will be able to deploy the more powerful encryption and authentication systems that are needed for fast roaming between network access points. Trapeze executives say that fast roaming techniques it proposed have become part of the ratified standard.

The 802.11i standard was designed to address security shortcomings of the 802.11-1999 Wired Equivalent Privacy encryption and the Temporal Key Integrity Protocol that was codified by the Wi-Fi Alliance as Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) 1.0.
