Whether you want to make a phone call from your mobile, receive a message on your pager, or check your email from a PDA, we have come across a wireless data or voice network. If a user or a company wants to make data portable, then Wireless networking is the answer.
The enterprise wireless solutions can also save your time and effort to install multiple cables.
Wireless network types:
Wireless local area network (WLAN)
WLAN allows users in the local area, e.g. university or library, to network and get wireless Internet access. A temporary network can be created by a few users without the need for an access point; while they do not need access to resources.

Wireless Private Network (WPANS)
There are two modern technologies for wireless private networks, Bluetooth and infrared. This technology allows personal devices to be connected within 9 meters. Infrared requires a direct line and has less range than Bluetooth technology.
Wireless Metro Network (WMANS)
WMANS allows multiple networks to be connected in a metropolitan area, such as a building in a city. Network connectivity is an alternative to copper or optical cables.
Wireless broadband network (WWANS)
WWANS or wireless networks can be maintained over a large area, for example in different cities or between different countries, through multiple satellite systems or antenna locations. This type of system is called a 2G system.
