Wireless Fundamentals Training Course

Wireless technology is surging and providing a conduit for technological advances.

Wireless fundamentals, for example, are redefining the Smart Home. Analysts believe that in the next year new levels of connectivity and standardization will essentially redefine the category.

Converging wireless trends (5G FWA and Wi-Fi 6) will combine to push Smart Home forward in a very big way. This includes not only higher bandwidth and faster streaming, but rather dramatically enhanced living spaces and at-home experiences that are more enjoyable, intuitive, efficient and secure.

Each of these trends on their own will impact the Smart Home segment, but how they work together should take the Smart Home to the next level.

For example, 5G fixed wireless access (FWA), brings multi-gigabit speeds, low latency and greater capacity to your doorstep (or more accurately, to the FWA device connected to your home).

Fixed wireless access is the segment of cellular that services fixed locations like office buildings and private homes. 5G FWA was the first type of 5G service deployed, because it’s a compelling alternative to fiber-optic and other cable-based internet access formats used for “last mile” connectivity.

There’s no need to run cabling, which is both time-consuming and expensive, and the necessary 5G-enabled equipment (routers, bridges and access points) can be installed quickly.

Wireless technology provides the ability to communicate between two or more entities over distances without the use of wires or cables of any sort.

The medium of wireless communications features the use of radio frequency (RF) as well as infrared (IR) waves.

In reality, wireless is a broad term encompassing all sorts of technologies and devices.

Wireless communications travel over the air via electromagnetic waves. The FCC regulates radio frequency bands in this spectrum, ensuring that they do not get too crowded and that wireless devices and services operate reliably.

Networking technologies that connect multiple computers and devices without wires, such as a wireless local area network (WLAN), also fall under the wireless umbrella. Often, these devices are referred to by the catch-all term “Wi-Fi,” which is trademarked by the Wi-Fi Alliance.

Wi-Fi covers technologies that incorporate 802.11 standards, such as 802.11g or 802.11ac network cards and wireless routers.

Wireless on its own is typically used to refer to products and services from the cellular telecommunications industry. CTIA, the Wireless Association, for example, is comprised of wireless carriers, such as Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint, and cellphone manufacturers like LG and Samsung. Different wireless protocols and phone standards include CDMA, GSM, EV-DO, 3G, 4G, and 5G.

The benefits of wireless technology are considerable, such as increased efficiency.

That’s because improved data communications lead to faster transfer of information within businesses and between partners and customers.

There’s also the element of flexibility. For example, office-based wireless workers can network without sitting at dedicated computers and can continue to do productive work while away from the office. This can lead to new styles of working, such as home working or direct access to corporate data while on customer sites.

Wireless networks can be easier and cheaper to install, especially in listed buildings or where the landlord will not permit the installation of cables.
