  • 1. Wi-Fi Technology
    • 08Q61A0597
  • 2. Introduction
    • Wireless Technology is an alternative to Wired Technology, which is commonly used, for connecting devices in wireless mode.
    • Wi-Fi (Wireless Fidelity) is a generic term that refers to the IEEE 802.11 communications standard for Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs).
    • Wi-Fi Network connect computers to each other, to the internet and to the wired network.
  • 3. The Wi-Fi Technology
    • Wi-Fi Networks use Radio Technologies to transmit & receive data at high speed:
      • IEEE 802.11b
      • IEEE 802.11a
      • IEEE 802.11g
  • 4. Elements of a WI-FI Network
    • Access Point (AP) - The AP is a wireless LAN transceiver or “base station” that can connect one or many wireless devices simultaneously to the Internet.
    • Wi-Fi cards - They accept the wireless signal and relay information.They can be internal and external.(e.g PCMCIA Card for Laptop and PCI Card for Desktop PC)
    • Safeguards - Firewalls and anti-virus software protect networks from uninvited users and keep information secure.
  • 5. How a Wi-Fi Network Works
    • Basic concept is same as Walkie talkies.
    • A Wi-Fi hotspot is created by installing an access point to an internet connection.
    • An access point acts as a base station.
    • When Wi-Fi enabled device encounters a hotspot the device can then connect to that network wirelessly.
    • A single access point can support up to 30 users and can function within a range of 100 – 150 feet indoors and up to 300 feet outdoors.
    • Many access points can be connected to each other via Ethernet cables to create a single large network.
  • 6. Wi-Fi Network Topologies
    • AP-based topology (Infrastructure Mode)
    • Peer-to-peer topology (Ad-hoc Mode)
    • Point-to-multipoint bridge topology
  • 7. AP-based topology
    • The client communicate through Access Point.
    • BSA-RF coverage provided by an AP.
    • ESA-It consists of 2 or more BSA.
    • ESA cell includes 10-15% overlap to allow roaming.
  • 8. Peer-to-peer topology
    • AP is not required.
    • Client devices within a cell can communicate directly with each other.
    • It is useful for setting up of a wireless network quickly and easily.
  • 9. Point-to-multipoint bridge topology
    • This is used to connect a LAN in one building to a LANs in other buildings even if the buildings are miles apart.These conditions receive a clear line of sight between buildings. The line-of-sight range varies based on the type of wireless bridge and antenna used as well as the environmental conditions.
  • 10. Wi-Fi Configurations
  • 11. Wi-Fi Configurations
  • 12. Wi-Fi Configurations
  • 13. Wi-Fi Applications
    • Home
    • Small Businesses or SOHO
    • Large Corporations & Campuses
    • Health Care
    • Wireless ISP (WISP)
    • Travellers
  • 14. Wi-Fi Security
    • The requirements for Wi-Fi network security can be broken down into two primary components:
    • Authentication
      • User Authentication
      • Server Authentication
    • Privacy
  • 15. Advantages
    • Mobility
    • Ease of Installation
    • Flexibility
    • Cost
    • Reliability
    • Security
    • Use unlicensed part of the radio spectrum
    • Roaming
    • Speed
  • 16. Limitations
    • Interference
    • Degradation in performance
    • High power consumption
    • Limited range
