which means that the antenna transmits in all directions simultaneously.11g differ from 802. while 802. 7.11b provides data rates up to 11 Mbps over longer distances (up to 500 feet). Each AP is set to transmit on a different wireless channel so that the APs do not interfere with each other.11b and 802. One common omnidirectional antenna is the dipole antenna. The two types of antennas that can be used on APs are omnidirectional antennas and directional antennas. Compare and contrast the two types of antennas. focused area. Directional antenna projects a signal only in one direction.11a provides data rates up to 54Mbps over short distances.11a? 802. How much overlap should be provided between APs? Why? The overlap in Aps should be 15% of the desired signal strength because it provides a smooth and transparent roaming from AP to AP. 802. 23. .11g is designed to replace both of these by providing 54 Mbps over long distances. the signal is stronger and therefore will carry farther than the signal from an AP using an omnidirectional antenna.3. How does 802. Because the signal is concentrated in a narrower. Most WLANs are installed using APs have omnidirectional antennas.
