Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN)

In this article we will discuss Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN), will make brief discussion on Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN), In last article we discuss about Campus Area Network (CAN).

A wireless LAN is a wireless computer network that links two or more devices using wireless communication to form a local area network within a limited area such as a home, school, computer laboratory, campus, office building etc. Wireless distribution method for two or more devices that use high-frequency radio waves and often include an access point to the Internet. A WLAN allows users to move around the coverage area, often a home or small office, while maintaining a network connection.

Technically, WLAN means any wireless local area network no matter what technology is used and Wi-Fi is a type of WLAN that follows the IEEE 802.11 standards which most WLANs in use today do, that’s why they are commonly used interchangeably.Wi-Fi as a name for the standard is a trademark of the Wi-Fi Alliance. Because Ethernet uses cables, it tends to work slightly faster than a wireless connection. Wireless connections are a bit slower, but provide the convenience of using it within range. Today, WiFi hotspots can easily be found in many places.

WLAN. Stands for “Wireless Local Area Network.” A WLAN, or wireless LAN, is a network that allows devices to connect and communicate wirelessly. Unlike a traditional wired LAN, in which devices communicate over Ethernet cables, devices on a WLAN communicate via Wi-Fi.
