In telecommunications, wireless communication may be used to transfer information
over short distances (a few meters as in television remote control) or long distances (thousands or millions
of kilometers for radio communications). The term is often shortened to "wireless". It encompasses
various types of fixed, mobile, and portable two-way radios, cellular telephones, personal digital
assistants (PDAs), and wireless networking. Other examples of wireless technology include GPS units,
garage door openers and or garage doors, wireless computer mice, keyboards and headsets, satellite
television and cordless telephones.c9ireless operations permits services, such as long range
communications, that are impossible or impractical to implement with the use of wires. The term is
commonly used in the telecommunications industry to refer to telecommunications systems (e.g. radio
transmitters and receivers, remote controls, computer networks, network terminals, etc.) which use some
form of energy (e.g. radio frequency (RF), infrared light, laser light, visible light, acoustic energy, etc.) to
transfer information without the use of wires.[1]Information is transferred in this manner over both short
and long distances.

9ireless connectivity has enabled a new mobile lifestyle filled with conveniences for
mobile computing users. Consumers will soon demand the same conveniences throughout their digital
home, connecting their PCs, personal digital recorders, MP3 recorders and players, digital camcorders
and digital cameras, high-definition TVs (HDTVs), set-top boxes (STBs), gaming systems, personal
digital assistants (PDAs), and cell phones, to connect to each other in a wireless personal area network
