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.
