types of wireless networks

The main purpose of using wireless network is its flexibility, roaming, low cost, and high standard.There are basically three different types of wireless networks – WAN, LAN and PAN.

types of wireless networks

Wireless Wide Area Networks (WWAN)
A WWAN is a network that covers a large geographic area, like, for example, a mesh network. A Wireless Wide Area Network is transmitting tiny packages of information between devices, mostly through sensors. A WWAN is using mobile telecommunication cellular network technologies such as LTE, GSM or cellular digital packet data (CDPD) to transfer data.

Wireless Wide Area Networks

Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN)
WLAN are wireless networks that use radio waves. The backbone network usually uses cables, with one or more wireless access points connecting the wireless users to the wired network. The range of a Wireless Local Area Network can be anywhere from a single room to an entire campus.

Wireless Personal Area Network (WPAN)
Wireless personal area networks (WPANs) connect devices within a small area, somewhere around within a person’s reach. A WPAN has a typical range of about 30 feet. They are commonly used to interconnect compatible devices near a central location, such as a desk.
With billions of wireless devices on the air already, and many billions more projected to join them in the next few years, many radio frequency bands are becoming crowded, and interference is a growing problem. You should consider this when designing your next product.

information about network Wi-Fi
Wi-Fi is widely correlated to wireless networking as it has become the standard for home networks and public hotspot networks. The benefits of Wi-Fi is that it runs over longer distances but in carefully controlled environments. The protocol is limited to work within single residential or commercial buildings and outdoor areas within short range.
