What is Wireless Networking? Wireless Networking refers to all computer networks that are not directly connected by cable. Wireless Networking allows homes, businesses and telecommunication networks to cut costs by avoiding pricey installation costs for cables into buildings and or connections between two or more equipment locations. Many wireless networks are administered by using radio communication, this takes place at the physical level (layer) of the OSI network structure. There are multiple types of wireless networks such as wireless PAN, wireless LAN, wireless mesh networks, wireless MAN and wireless WAN. All of these are similar, but unique in their own way.
Wireless PAN - interconnects devices within a small area, such as smart phones, tablets and computers using radio signals such as Bluetooth.
Wireless LAN - links two or more devices over a short distance using a wireless distribution method. Normally resulting in a connection through a access point over an internet connection.
Wireless mesh network - allows a message to be sent over a network of radio nodes. Each node is smart and can automatically re-route around a node that has lost power (such as a power outage).
Wireless MAN - connects multiple wireless LANs to create a stronger wireless network.
Wireless WAN - connections cover a large area such as suburbs, a city or multiple cities. This connection type uses point to point microwave links to connect from tower to tower.
