Wired & Wireless Network

Ethernet and wireless networks each have advantages and disadvantages; depending on your needs, one may serve you better than the other in some cases. Wired networks provide users with plenty of security and the ability to move lots of data very quickly. Wired networks are typically faster than wireless networks, and they can be very affordable. However, the cost of Ethernet cable can add up -- the more computers on your network and the farther apart they are, the more expensive your network will be. In addition, unless you're building a new house and installing Ethernet cable in the walls, you'll be able to see the cables running from place to place around your home, and wires can greatly limit your mobility. A laptop owner, for example, won't be able to move around easily if his computer is tethered to the wall. Wireless network operations, on the other hand, permits services, such as long range communications, that are impossible or impractical to implement with the use of wires. The term “Wireless Network” is commonly used in the telecommunications industry to transfer information without the use of wires. Information is transferred in this manner over both short and long distances.

Wireless technology may supplement or replace hard wired implementations in security systems for homes or office buildings.

Wireless networking (unlicensed frequencies) is used to meet many needs. Perhaps the most common use is to connect laptop users who travel from location to location. Another common use is for mobile networks that connect via WIFI.

A wireless transmission method is a logical choice to a LAN segment that must frequently change locations. The following situations justify the use of wireless technology:

  • To span a distance beyond the capabilities of typical cabling.
  • To provide a backup communications link in case of normal network failure.
  • To link portable or temporary workstations.
  • To overcome situations where normal cabling is difficult or financially impractical.
  • To remotely connect mobile users or networks.
