      WiMAX

      WiMAX stands for Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access. WiMAX is a broadband wireless point-to-multipoint specification from the IEEE 802.16 working group. Unlike wireless LAN technologies such as Wi-Fi (802.11), WiMAX is designed to operate as a wireless MAN (Metropolitan Area Network). This places WiMAX in the same class as the earlier 802.16 standards, MMDS and

      WiFi Signal Strength Meter

      Windows and other operating systems have a WiFi signal strength meter, but this is usually basic software and does not really tell the user much about the wireless signal. Fortunately, there are many other programs that do the same thing, but show the user more details about the wireless connection. We will describe some of

      How Does Wireless Networking Work?

      Wireless networking has grown from only being a tool employed by academia and Fortune 500 companies to being deployed in locations such as McDonald’s, Starbucks, and gas stations for free consumer use over the past decade. Consumers can install a wireless network in the home for minimal cost today, and many home theater set-top boxes

      SMS Shortcuts

      SMS (Short Message Service) is a protocol for sending and receiving brief text messaging over digital cellular networks. Most people send SMS messages from the very small keypads on their mobile phones, and most people who receive SMS messages read them on the tiny screens of their mobile phones. Because of those considerations, and because

    • What is Multicast Wireless?

      What is Multicast Wireless?

      Multicast is the transfer of messages to multiple destinations simultaneously, using fewer networks. The information is delivered to each of the links only once, and copies are created when the links to the destinations split, thus creating an optimal distribution path. Multicasting reduces unnecessary packet duplication. A wireless network utilizes radio communication, unlike wired networks,
