Wireless Network Projects for Students.

Wireless network projects support and provide large real time application in useful way. A computer network that is not connected to other devices is wireless network. To communicate with others wireless networking is less expensive. It acts as a new trend to networking and it provides positive reply for many years. One good e.g. is cell phone. Wireless network projects can be implemented easily with low cost. Wireless network is a computer network, which allows and enables people to communicate and access applications and information without wires. Sample examples of wireless networks are Wi-Fi local area network, cell phone network and terrestrial microwave networks. Advantages of wireless network projects are convenience, cost, security, mobility, and productivity, expandable and easy setup.

Classification of wireless network.

Wireless metropolitan area network (MAN): To form a large wireless network communication various WLANS are linked together. It is found in college campus, cities.

Wireless personal area network (PAN): Small area or persons reach are interconnected. example: adhoc networks and Bluetooth.

Wireless local area network (LAN): From access point to internet, two or more devices are linked and connection is provided by a wireless distribution method. example: : laser bridges, WI-FI.

Wireless wide area network (WAN): Large area as neighboring towns or cities are being connected example: : aparnet.


Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) Technology.

Wi-Fi is the popular term for a high-frequency wireless local area network (WLAN) technology, which uses radio waves to provide wireless high-speed Internet and network connections. Wi-Fi applied in the fields of business, hotels, education, airport, hospital environments, etc for local area network connection without the use of the cables.

Wi-Fi technology families are 80.11, 802.11a, 802.1b, 802.11g, 802.11b/g and 802.lln.

Wireless network projects are done in the above mentioned Wi-Fi families. Wireless network projects use Wi-Fi technology for providing security in local area network by introducing WEP, WPA and WPA2 etc. Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) is a specification of standards-based, interoperable security enhancements. Advantages of WPA is Enhanced data privacy, robust key management, Data origin authentication, Data integrity protection.

Benefits of Wireless Network Projects.

Deployment: For initial infrastructure based wireless network there is a need for more access point.

Convenience: To access many network resources, wireless network allows user who is nearly located within an appropriate network environment.

Cost: From wired parts small increase rate is worst in wireless network hardware.

Mobility: User could access internet with an outside work environment by public wireless network user e.g. coffee shops.

Expandability: Rapid increase number of clients with existing equipment is served. To add a new client to network in wired network writing is required.

Composition of wireless network projects.
  • Wireless hosts.
  • Wireless link.
  • Infrastructure.
  • Base station.

Wireless link acts as a backbone to connect mobiles to base station.

For sending packets among wired and wireless networks transformation process is responsible e.g.: cell towers.

The method of creating large network with a wireless host for communication is infrastructure, it is a wired network. Based on network range infrastructure is determined.

Applications of Wireless network projects.
  • Cellular phone application.
  • Used in biotechnology.
  • Nano technology application.
  • Global positioning system (GPS).
  • Printers, mouse, headphones and keyboards.

A rising technology in network is the wireless network. Among various devices wireless network provides effective  wireless communication.
