Security Functions (WPA)
With the aid of WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access), users can authorize and identify
themselves based on a secret key that changes automatically at regular intervals.
WPA uses TKIP /Temporal Key Integrity Protocol) to change the temporary key
every 10,000 packets (packet = data transmission unit). This guarantees far
greater security than that provided by the standard WEP security in which the key
must be changed manually.
The authentication achieves security against third parties intruding in the network.
The server verifies the identity of the client before it allows access to the network.
Access is denied to unknown clients.
To use the security functions according to WPA, all components involved (incl. the
operating system) must support these functions.

Deployment
Deployment of the CP 7515 and the Access Points
Since the CP 7515 is designed for distances up to 300 m, you have access to your
network almost anywhere. Remember, however, that if the signal needs to go
through walls and ceilings, the transmission range is restricted. The transmission
range also varies depending on the material the signal has to penetrate and on
interfering radiation. To achieve an optimum transmission, remember the following
basic rules:
•
Keep the number of obstacles (walls, ceilings) between the access point and
receiver unit as few as possible. Each wall and each ceiling reduces the
transmission range by up to 30 m.
•
Make sure that the angle at which obstacles are penetrated is as
perpendicular as possible to achieve good reception. A wall or ceiling that
must be penetrated at an angle to obtain a straight connection appears
correspondingly thicker (an angle of 45° at a wall thickness of 0.5 m is the
same as a wall thickness of 1 m; at an angle of 2° this corresponds to a wall
14 m thick).
•
The material of which the obstacle is made has a considerable influence on
the transmission range (for example a steel door, aluminum wall). Make sure
that there are no metal obstacles between the access point and receiver unit.
•
Use the supplied CP 7515 manager to measure the signal strength and to find
the optimum position of the antenna.
•
Maintain a clearance of at least 1 to 2 meters to devices that can emit RF
interference.
In most cases, the maximum transmission range should not be of any importance.
If, however, you find that there are positions at which you receive a signal that is
too weak or no signal at all, change the position of the access point so that it is
located between the receiver units.
Use additional access points to achieve better coverage in rooms in which the
signal cannot be received in adequate strength.

Biological Compatibility
With regard to the question of whether electromagnetic fields (for example in
association with industrial wireless LANs) can put human health at risk, we refer to
a publication of BITKOM (German Association for information Technology,
Telecommunication and New Media e. V) dated December 2003:
"The same regulations for the protection of health for all other radio applications
also apply to WLAN devices. These regulations are based on the protection
concept of ICNIRP21 or the corresponding recommendation of the European
Council.
The independent German radiation protection commission (SSK) was
commissioned by the federal German ministry of the environment to investigate the
possible dangers - thermal and non-thermal - resulting from electromagnetic fields
and came to the following conclusions2:
"The SSK comes to the conclusion that even after evaluation of the latest scientific
literature, there is no new scientific evidence regarding proven adverse effects on
health that causes any doubt regarding the scientific evaluation on which the
protection concept of the ICNIRP or the European Council recommendation is
based."
The SSK also concludes that below the current limit values, there is also no
scientific suspicion of health risks.
This evaluation agrees with that of other national and international scientific
commissions and with that of the WHO (www.who.int/emf) überein.
Accordingly and in view of the fact that WLAN devices are significantly below the
scientifically established limit values, the electromagnetic fields of WLAN products
do not represent a health hazard.
You will find further information on this topic under the following URL:

Basics of WLANs
Advantages of a WLAN
In contrast to wired networks (optical or electrical), data in wireless LANs is
transmitted by electromagnetic waves in free space. As a result, the conventional
cabling and the fixed, installed infrastructure are not needed. WLAN technology is
also less expensive than conventional LAN technology.
WLAN products comply with industrial standards and allow simple access with a
high transmission rate.
Difference Between LAN and WLAN
WLAN access hardly differs from wired access to the network for the user. The
major advantage of the WLAN, however, is that in contrast to fixed cabling you can
move freely within the transmission range of the signal.
An access point connects the WLAN to a conventional LAN. This provides access
to servers, network printers and the Internet.

You will find the installation instructions for the various operating systems in
Section 5.2 Installing the Driver under Windows XP/2000/2003 Server.
Note
Depending on the operating system, the computer will be restarted during the
installation.
This is a normal part of the installation!
Screen Saver
If you use a screen saver, remember that processing the saver costs CPU time and
this can lead to the system being overloaded.
Some screen savers are known not to release memory resources again. This
means that usable main memory is continually reduced.
Required Permissions
To install under Windows XP, Windows 2000, and Windows 2003 Server, you
require administrator privileges.

Virus Scanners
The use of a virus scanner during operation can lead to problems on hardware
expansions. When working with SOFTNET, this can therefore lead to a
deterioration in communication.
We recommend that you do not run virus scans while operating a SIMATIC NET
PC software product. After a virus scan, you should restart your computer before
you activate communication again.
