Characteristics of wireless LANs
very flexible within the reception area  Ad-hoc networks without previous planning possible  (almost) no wiring difficulties (e.g. historic buildings, firewalls)  more robust against disasters like, e.g., earthquakes, fire - or users pulling a plug...

typically very low bandwidth compared to wired networks (1-10 Mbit/s) due to shared medium  many proprietary solutions, especially for higher bit-rates, standards take their time (e.g. IEEE 802.11)  products have to follow many national restrictions if working wireless, it takes a vary long time to establish global solutions like, e.g., IMT-2000

Design goals for wireless LANs          global. simple management protection of investment in wired networks security (no one should be able to read my data). safety (low radiation) transparency concerning applications and higher layer protocols. privacy (no one should be able to collect user profiles). but also location awareness if necessary . seamless operation low power for battery use no special permissions or licenses needed to use the LAN robust transmission technology simplified spontaneous cooperation at meetings easy to use for everyone.
