Wireless is a term
used to describe

The first wireless transmitters went on
the air in the early 20th century using
radiotelegraphy (Morse code). Later,
as modulation made it possible to
transmit voices and music via wireless.
Wireless LANs provide
Ease of Installation
A wireless local area network (WLAN)
links two or more devices using some
wireless distribution method and usually
providing a connection through an
access point to the wider Internet. This
gives users the ability to move around
within a local coverage area and still be
connected to the network.
In response to lacking standards, IEEE
developed the first internationally
recognized wireless LAN standard –
IEEE published 802.11 in 1997, after
seven years of work
Most prominent specification for WLANs
Scope of IEEE 802.11 is limited to
Physical and Data Link Layers.
IEEE 802.11 Wireless LAN
Access point (AP): A station that provides
access to the DS.
Basic service set (BSS): A set of stations
controlled by a single AP.
Distribution system (DS): A system used to
interconnect a set of BSSs to create an
DS is implementation-independent. It can be a
wired 802.3 Ethernet LAN, 802.4 token bus,
802.5 token ring or another 802.11 medium.
Extended service set (ESS):Two or more
BSS interconnected by DS
Portal: Logical entity where 802.11 network
integrates with a non 802.11 network.
IEEE 802.11 Terminology
The IEEE 802.11 has two basic modes of
operation: ad hoc mode
and infrastructure mode. In ad
hoc mode, mobile units transmit directly
peer-to-peer. In infrastructure mode,
mobile units communicate through
an access point that serves as a bridge
to other networks (such
as Internet or LAN).
IEEE 802.11a and IEEE
Makes use of 5-GHz band
Provides rates of 6, 9 , 12, 18, 24, 36, 48, 54 Mbps
Uses orthogonal frequency division multiplexing

Bluetooth is a wireless technology
standard for exchanging data over
short distances from fixed and mobile
devices, building personal area
Invented by telecom vendor Ericsson
It can connect several devices,
overcoming problems of
Physical range up to 50 metres
Bluetooth is managed by the Bluetooth
Special Interest Group (SIG).
The SIG oversees the development of the
specification, manages the qualification
program, and protects the trademarks.
To be marketed as a Bluetooth device, it
must be qualified to standards defined by
the SIG.A network of patents is required to
implement the technology, which is licensed
only for that qualifying device.
Bluetooth uses a radio technology
called frequency-hopping spread
The transmitted data are divided into
packets and each packet is
transmitted on one of the 79
designated Bluetooth channels. Each
channel has a bandwidth of 1 MHz.
Bluetooth is a packet-based protocol
with a master-slave structure. One
master may communicate with up to
seven slaves .
The master chooses which slave
device to address; typically, it
switches rapidly from one device to
another in a round-robin fashion.
Bluetooth is a standard wire-
replacement communications protocol
primarily designed for low power
Because the devices use a radio
(broadcast) communications system,
they do not have to be in visual line of
sight of each other, however a quasi
optical wireless path must be viable.
Bluetooth mobile phone headset.

communication between a mobile
phone and a hands free headset.

Bluetooth exists in many products,
such as telephones, tablets, media
players, robotics systems, handheld
and console gaming equipment, and
some high definition headsets,
modems, and watches.
All versions of the Bluetooth
standards are designed for downward
compatibility. That lets the latest
standard cover all older versions.

Near field communication
Near field communication (NFC) is a
set of standards for devices to
establish radio communication with
each other by touching them together
or bringing them into proximity,
usually no more than a few inches.
applications include contactless
transactions, data exchange, and
simplified setup of more complex
communications such as Wi-Fi.
Near field communication
NFC is a set of short-range wireless
technologies, typically requiring a
distance of 10 cm or less. NFC operates
at 13.56 MHz. Data rates ranging from
106 kbit/s to 424 kbit/s.
. NFC always involves an initiator and a
target; the initiator actively generates
an RF field that can power a passive
target. This enables NFC targets to
take simple form factors such as tags,
or cards that do not require batteries.
RuBee (IEEE standard 1902.1) is a two
way, active wireless protocol designed
for harsh environment, high security
asset visibility applications. RuBee
utilizes Long Wave (LW) magnetic
signals to send and receive short (128
byte) data packets in a local regional
RuBee is slow (1,200 baud) compared
to other packet based network data
131 kHz as an operating frequency
provides RuBee with the advantages of
ultra low power consumption (battery
life measured in many years), and
normal operation near steel and/or
water. These features make it easy to
deploy sensors, controls, or even
actuators and indicators.
RuBee uses long wavelengths and
works in the near field (under 50 feet)
it is possible to simultaneously
transmit and receive from many
adjacent antennas, without
interference providing the signals are
RuBee has no reflections and is not
blocked by steel or liquids and
therefore is not line-of-sight.
RuBee is robust in harsh environment
visibility and security applications. It
also means RuBee has no eavesdropping
risks in secure facilities. RuBee is the
only wireless technology to ever be
approved for use in secure facilities by
the U.S. Department of Energy (DoE).
Li-Fi refers to 5G visible light
communication systems using light
from light-emitting diodes (LEDs) as a
medium to deliver networked, mobile,
high-speed communication in a similar
manner as Wi-Fi and Optical fibre. Li-
Fi could lead to the Internet of
Things, which is everything electronic
being connected to the internet, with
the LED lights on the electronics
being used as internet access points.
The light waves cannot penetrate walls
which makes a much shorter range,
though more secure from hacking.
Direct line of sight isn't necessary for
Li-Fi to transmit signal and light
reflected of walls achieve 70 Mbps.
Li-Fi can be used in electromagnetic
sensitive areas such as in aircraft
cabins, hospitals and nuclear power
plants without causing electromagnetic
