Is an inner layer of wireless security needed to protect the core network?

By sampal2009 ·
Recently a blog was published at http://blog.airtightnetworks.com advocating an inner layer of defense such as a wireless intrusion prevention system (WIPS) to protect the core network from wireless attacks. This is because the integrated security mechanism provided by the wireless LAN cannot protect against many different types of attacks such as rogue APs, unauthorized client connections, ad-hoc networks, MAC spoofing and many other attacks.

What is your experience with a wireless intrusion prevention system? Do you agree with the blog?s point of view?
