Excerpt from course

WLAN technology is one of the faster growing networking technologies.

Wireless LAN technology provides a very good business model as it uses free unlicensed frequencies and provides a wireless last hop to IP networking which is free too.

Though WLAN protocol was initially designed for high bandwidth delay insensitive data applications, WLANs today are being used for a wide variety of traffic types and applications .

Some of the applications of WLANs include, corporate wireless data networks, hotspots, medical facilities using VoIP over WLAN phones and badges, department stores using wireless barcode scanners, consumer electronics using wireless communications like wireless TVs, wireless cameras.
