Technology Focus

Wireless-Nets offers services for planning, designing, implementing, and analyzing / troubleshooting mobile systems and wireless networks based on the following technologies:

IEEE 802.11 / Wi-Fi

  • 802.11 standards define wireless LANs that enterprises and cities deploy for supporting mobile access to application servers, voice telephony, and the Internet. 802.11n standardization is paving the way for wireless networks that support high-end mobile applications and large densities of wireless users. 

IEEE 802.15.1 / Bluetooth

  • 802.15.1 standards define wireless PANs that enable wireless communications at moderate data rates over relatively short distances, with the most common application being replacement of cables with wireless interfaces. 

802.15.4 / ZigBee

  • 802.15.4 standards define wireless LANs that enable wireless communications at low data rates over moderate distances. 802.11.15.4 is best for connecting sensors together. 

IEEE 802.16 / WiMAX

  • 802.16 standards define wireless MANs that provide both fixed and mobile wireless connectivity over larger areas, such as cities. Both licensed and unlicensed frequencies are available.

IEEE 802.1x / Security

  • 802.1x defines a framework for securing wired and wireless networks through port-based authentication. In addition, specifications, such as EAPOL, RADIUS, and EAP-TLS provide functionality to fully secure a wireless network.

Proprietary RF and Light

  • In cases where standards-based solutions don't meet requirements, there are proprietary RF and infrared light technologies available from various vendors.

Voice over WLAN

  • There are tremendous benefits based on deploying voice over wireless LANs, especially for larger facilities, such as hospitals. An existing 802.11 infrastructure can support mobile telephony, which avoids the need for leased cellular services. 

Cellular - Distributed Antenna Systems

  • A distributed antenna system (DAS) enables multiple cellular operators and Wi-Fi providers to share a common antenna system in larger facilities, such as airports, stadiums, and enterprises. This reduces the complexity and costs associated with supporting the system infrastructure.
