Which type of wireless network do you need?
A modern alternative to traditional wired networking, wireless communication technology has become a widely used model for deploying internet connectivity in homes, offices, and enterprises. Wireless technology offers huge benefits in terms of mobility and a large number of innovative technologies.
However, businesses may have a difficult time trying to decide what type of wireless connection is ideal for their use case. Here's a brief look into the common types of wireless networks available to use today.
Basic Types of wireless networks
- Point-to-Point - connections allow one device to directly communicate with exactly one other device. For example, two phones may pair with each other to exchange contact information or pictures.
- Broadcast/multicast - connections allow a device to send one message out to the network and have copies of that message delivered to multiple recipients
- Multipoint - connections allow one device to directly connect and deliver messages to multiple devices in parallel.
