1.1 Context of the Problem

Networking Technologies have evolved to a degree that they offer a host of flexible network design options; to cater the needs of any application. Conversely, technology has also drastically increased the amount of hardware that is integrally a part of system networks. While the resulting combination of advanced technology and more hardware has addressed many of the networking needs, it has also led to a somewhat an unexpected problem. The Local Area Networks (LAN) and Internet Protocol (IP) addresses are being rapidly depleted. The depletion has led to a number of problems in both the commercial and private sector. The present research would explore and address the major problems associated with the issue.

1.2.1 Overcrowding

In order to address the vital issue of LAN and IP address depletion; a number of elements need to be kept in mind. The first major issue arises in the form of overcrowding. Overcrowding is bound to occur in the case of over utilization and causes an overload on the server. A possible remedy to counter the depletion of LAN and IP addresses is to develop a Network Address Translation (NAT) for the IPv4. The NAT helps in reducing overcrowding. NAT is also beneficial in utilizing or masking the addresses in local intranet (Baumgartner & Phillips, 2004)

1.2.2 Internet Roaming

In today's fast paced world of technology and modern advancements; the corporate sector is always faced with roaming issues in their every day operations. Traffic encountered on internet roaming catalyzes the depletion of LAN and IP addresses. In order to slow down the depletion, a substitute integrated mobile networking could be introduced in both public and private wireless local area networks (WLAN) and by capitalizing the available cellular data on networks.

Modern wireless networks offer several advantages i.e. faster speed, low financial costs etc. The major drawback is the coverage which is often restricted to buildings, office premises, houses or hotspots that hold internet signals. Similarly, the cellular networks provide wide coverage, but they are at very slow speeds and are higher in costs. To counter the depletion of LAN and IP addresses, businesses in the future would require remote access ...
