Wireless communication is the transfer of information or power between two or more points that are not connected by an electrical conductor. The most current wireless technologies use radio waves. With radio waves, distances can be short, such as a few meters for Bluetooth or as far as millions of kilometers for deep-space radio communications. It encompasses various types of fixed, mobile, and portable applications, including two-way radios, cellular telephones, personal digital assistants, and wireless networking. Various examples of applications of radio technology include GPS units, garage door openers, computer mice, keyboards and headsets, headphones, radio receivers, satellite television, broadcast television, and cordless telephones.
The term wireless has been used twice in communications history, with a slightly different meaning. It was initially used from about 1890 for the first radio transmitting and receiving technology, as in telegraphy, until the new word radio replaced it around 1920. The term was revived in the 1980s and 1990s mainly to distinguish digital devices that communicate without wires, such as the examples listed above, from those that require wires or cables. This became its primary usage in the 2000s, due to the advent of technologies such as mobile broadband, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
Wireless networking has become an expected service offered by companies, businesses, and even homes & cars. This creates a huge security concern to segregate signals between resident and non-resident end users that must be addressed. Since wireless is a short-range technology, it also creates a need for multiple AP’s, extenders, boosters, and mesh networks. Ultimately all wireless networks terminate in a local area network that connects to the global or private source of data.
