Wireless Communication
Version 2 EE IIT, Kharagpur 2
 
Instructional Objectives
After going through this lesson the student would be able to
 
Describe the benefits and issues in wireless communication
 
Distinguish between WLAN, WPAN and their different implementations like Ricochet,HiperLAN, HomeRF and Bluetooth
 
Choose a particular wireless communication standard to suit an application
Wireless Communication
Third generation wireless technologies are being developed to enable personal, high-speedinteractive connectivity to wide area networks (WANs). The
 IEEE 802.11x
wirelesstechnologies finds themselves with an increasing presence in corporate and academic officespaces, buildings, and campuses. Furthermore, with slow but steady inroads into public areassuch as airports and coffee bars. WAN, LAN and PAN technologies enable device connectivityto infrastructure-based services - either through campus or corporate backbone intranet.The other end of coverage spectrum is occupied by the short-range
embedded wireless connectivity technologies
that allow devices to communicate with each other directly without theneed for an established infrastructure. At this end of the coverage spectrum the wirelesstechnologies like Ricochet, Bluetooth etc. offer the benefits of 
 omni-directionality
and theelimination of the
line-of-sight
requirement of RF-based connectivity. The embeddedconnectivity space resembles a communication bubble that follows people around and empowersthem to connect their personal devices with other devices that enter the bubble. Connectivity inthis bubble is spontaneous and ephemeral and can involve several devices of diverse computingcapabilities,
unlike
wireless LAN solutions that are designed for communication betweendevices of sufficient computing power and battery.The table below shows a short comparison of various technologies in the wireless arena.
