  12. 12. A LAN with every end device/node having wireless access to share hardware, software and other devices and Resources.<br />Wireless Communications (Computer Networks: WLANs)<br />other devices<br />
  13. 13. Infrared (IR) LANs<br />Spread Spectrum LANs<br />Wireless Communications (Computer Networks: WLANs: Transmission Techniques)<br />
  14. 14. Limited to single room<br />b/c waves does not penetrate opaque walls<br />GHz to 400 THz<br />Excellent potential for data transmission<br />Keyboard, mouse, Printers, and end devices can communicate<br />Original standard data rate of 75 kbps for a distance up to 8 m. <br />The recent standard defines a data rate of 4 Mbps.<br />Wireless Communications (Computer Networks: WLANs: Transmission Techniques: Infrared LANs)<br />
  15. 15. IEEE 802.11 committee Standards<br />Makes use of Spread Spectrum transmission techniques.<br />Most Popular type of WLAN<br />Usable without having to go to licensing procedure<br />Operates in ISM [Industrial, Scientific, and Medical {902-928MHz (915MHz), 2.4-2.4835GHz (2.4GHz), 5.725-5.825GHz(5.8GHz)}] microwave band.<br />Higher the frequency, Higher the potential Bandwidth.<br />Wireless Communications (Computer NWs: WLANs: Transmission Techniques: Spread Spectrum LANs)<br />
  16. 16. Wireless Communications (Computer NWs : : : IEEE 802.11 Standard)<br />
  17. 17. Access Point (AP)<br />Basic Services Set (BSS)<br />Coordination Function<br />Distribution System<br />Extended Services Set (ESS)<br />MAC protocol data Unit (MPDU)<br />MAC service Data Unit (MSDU)<br />Station/Node/End Device<br />Wireless Communications (Computer NWs : : : IEEE 802.11 Components)<br />
  18. 18. Access Point (AP)<br />Also called Wireless Access point (WAP) or central Base Station.<br />a device that allows wireless communication devices to connect to a wireless network using Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or related standards.<br />WAP or AP connects to router or any other Layer 3 device<br />Can perform switching function b/w wireless devices<br />Wired devices can also be connected to it<br />Wireless Communications (Computer NWs : : : : Access Point)<br />
  19. 19. Wireless Communications (Computer NWs : : : : Access Point)<br />A typical Wireless Access Point<br />
  20. 20. Basic Services Set (BSS)<br />Building block of a wireless LAN.<br />is made of stationary or mobile wireless stations and an optional central base station, also known as the access point (AP).<br />*A BSS without an AP is called an ad hoc network<br />ABSS with an AP is called an infrastructure network.<br />Wireless Communications (Computer NWs : : : : Basic Services Set)<br />
  21. 21. Access Point is Optional<br />Without Access point stations still can communication<br />Wireless Communications (Computer NWs : : : : Basic Services Set)<br />
  22. 22. Coordination Function<br />logical function<br />Uses CSMA techniques with CA<br />Determines when a station is permitted to transmit<br />and may able to receive the PDU.<br />Distribution Function<br />A system used to interconnect <br />A set of BSSs<br />& integrated LAN to create ESS<br />Wireless Communications (Computer NWs : : : : Coordination and Distribution Function)<br />
  23. 23. An Extended service set (ESS) <br />is made up of two or more BSSs with APs. In this case, the BSSs are connected through a distribution system, which is usually a wired LAN. <br />The distribution system connects the APs in the BSSs. <br />IEEE 802.11 does not restrict the distribution system; <br />it can be any IEEE LAN such as an Ethernet.<br />Wireless Communications (Computer NWs : : : : Extended Services set)<br />
  24. 24. MAC Protocol Data Unit (MPDU)<br />The unit of data exchanged b/w two peer MAC entities using the services of the physical layer.<br />MAC Protocol Data Unit (MSDU) <br />Information that is delivered to the user.<br />Stations <br />Any device that contains an IEEE 802.11 conformant MAC and Physical layer.<br />Wireless Communications (Computer NWs : : : : MPDU, MSDU & Stations)<br />

  28. 28. Data less secure<br />The waves could be damaging to our health<br />Modulation technique required for efficient transmission.<br />Wireless Communications (Computer NWs : : : : Why not Wireless)<br />
  29. 29. Authentication<br />A function that determines whether a Station is allowed to participate in network communication.<br />Implementing network encryption<br />Security Protocols<br />WEP (Wireless Equivalency protocol)<br />WPA (Wireless Protected Access)<br />Wireless Communications (Security)<br />
  30. 30. Data is In Air<br />Even with Encryption creative minded hackers can sniff your data and corporate confidential information.<br />Even with encryption, the data between client and AP’s are available for anyone to capture.<br />Danger for Humanity…<br />Wireless Communications (Issues)<br />
  31. 31. An Adhoc network is a peer-to-peer network (no central device) set up temporarily to meet some immediate needs.<br />When all station are mobile stations, with no connection to other BSSs, the BS is called IBSS(Independent BSS), some times referred as Ad hoc network…<br />In simple words, it is decentralized network…<br />Wireless Communications (Adhoc Networks)<br />
