IEEE 802.11e using none toconnect none for web,windows applicationupc-a generation IEEE 802.11a CBC 802.11a and 802.11g The 802.11a standard none for none is designed for the user with high bandwidth demands and operates in the 5 GHz Unlicensed National Information Infrastructure (UNII) band. It uses a different encoding (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing, OFDM).

This is similar in character to a chipping code, but the codes are carefully chosen so that a 1 bit from one. CHAPTER 5 / THE PHYSICAL AND LINK LAYERS 3 source is distinguis none none hable from a 1 bit from another source even if both are transmitted at the same time on the same frequency. This gives better error resilience and even allows channels to overlap somewhat with no degradation. The standard speci es various rates from 6Mb/s up to a nominal 54Mb/s.

It works over a shorter physical range than 802.11b/g, but for a given power and distance between machines it has a higher bandwidth. The expected realistic bandwidth from an 802.

11a network tops out at around 22 to 26Mb/s over a short distance. The 802.11g standard is backwardly compatible with 802.

11b (it uses the 2.4GHz band and will interoperate with 802.11b at 11Mb/s or slower), but provides up to a signalling rate of 54Mb/s over distances comparable to 802.

11b by using OFDM for its faster rates. The data rate is similar to 802.11a in a 802.

11g-only environment, but can drop somewhat in a mixed 802.11b and 11g environment as the 802.11g standard is required to be friendly to 802.

11b transmissions. How do 802.11a and 802.

11g compare They have the same bandwidth and both use OFDM. The signal from 802.11a is more lossy than 802.

11g and will barely pass through walls: an 802.11a transmitter might have trouble covering an average-sized home while 802.11g normally has no problem.

The higher frequency of 802.11a requires more power, so is less suitable for portable devices. On the other hand, the 5 GHz part of the spectrum is much less crowded than the free-for-all 2.

4 GHz band and so is much less likely to get interference. You can only have a limited number of 802.11g networks physically close to each other (just as 802.

11b) but 802.11a allows as many as 12 or more to operate together without mutual interference. The Wi-Fi Alliance also tests 802.

11a and 802.11g equipment for interoperability. The 802.

11a channels are not all identical: typically there are differing restrictions on the maximum transmission power allowed. This might vary from 4 W for one channel to 200 mW for another. This must be taken into account when planning an 802.

IEEE 802.11j 5.2 / WIRELESS ETHERNET In the marketplace 8 02.11g has won over 802.11a.

Even though 802.11a hardware was out in the marketplace for about a year before 802.11g hit the streets, it appears that the backward compatibility of 11g with 11b has played to its advantage as there were already a huge number of 11b products installed.

It has been suggested that 11a may gain acceptance in business environments where the extra aggregate bandwidth is useful, while 11g may be more popular in homes because of its backward compatibility and lower price. Perhaps, as more and more 11b/g devices appear, people will migrate to the less cluttered frequencies of 11a. More likely is that 11a will remain a minor player as both it and 11g are overtaken by new technology.

11 networks can be arranged in a point-to-point (aka Ad-Hoc or Independent Basic Service Set (IBSS) mode) con guration, where each machine can see the others and they contact their peers directly. Alternatively, they can be in a hub con guration where a central machine routes traf c (also called infrastructure or Basic Service Set (BSS) mode). This can work over a physically wider area than point-to-point, but requires the purchase of a hub called an access point (AP).

APs usually have an Ethernet connection so they can bridge between wired and wireless. There is also Extended Service Set (ESS) mode where you have multiple access points connected by (say) a wired Ethernet. In this setup you can roam between access points.

This is the same as cellular telephone networks where your machine can transfer between transmitters as you physically move about. An ESS can cover an area as large as you like, subject to the usual limitations on the wired part. Being a broadcast medium, wireless networks are particularly vulnerable to eavesdropping.

Thus some kind of security mechanism is required, the very least being encryption of the data before it is transmitted. So, to prevent casual snooping of the signal, 802.11 employs Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) which uses the RC4 encryption algorithm with.
