Wireless networks in education institutions have emerged as one of the effective mediums of data access and data sharing. The use of these networks is largely influenced by the increased mobility of students and the faculty. Due to this reason, the adoption of tools, which safeguards the deployment and management of a wireless network and ensure a secure mode of data transfer via these networks, has become essential.”
