Meaning of WLAN

What is WLAN?

WLAN is the acronym for Wireless Local Area Network. It is a local area network that uses radio waves to transmit data and to connect to the Internet, without the need to use traditional cables to connect devices.
Initially the equipment for a WLAN was very expensive, so it was used only in large corporations. With the reduction of costs with equipment, individuals also have access.

One of the technologies used by WLAN is the Wi-Fi ( Wireless Fidelity ) transmission standard, which allows the connection of laptops, cell phones, PDAs, etc, which are not too far from the access point.

A WLAN connection is useful for both businesses and private households. In companies, employees can quickly access data, and at home, they can connect to the Internet for the whole family.

It was once thought that connections were faster and more secure in wired networks, a notion that is no longer true with the speed and security provided by the WLAN.

The security of a WLAN is made through the authentication of the user, avoiding unauthorized access; and with data encryption, to protect the data transmitted over the network.
