This is a fact that many people overlook and is the growing use of wireless networks in everything we see on a daily basis. Because it is expected that in a few years everything will be interconnected to the internet. Although traditional cable connections are still used in our homes, their use should end. That is why we will teach you in this article How does wireless networking technology work?

But what is wireless technology? And this is none other than the capacity of electronic devices such as phones, tablets, video game consoles, television, PCs, etc. To communicate or connect with each other without the use of cables or other different physical means. And this has caused a huge revolution when it comes to connecting because it allows us to be mobile.



On this particular topic, we had the opportunity to show you a tutorial in it that we could teach you, how to install a wireless network card in a desktop PC to have wireless WiFi, very simple. But this time we will insist on this issue and we will explain to you how does wireless networking technology work?

How wireless networking technology works

It is important that you know that there are several tecnologie wireless that allow our devices to communicate. There is, for example, the one that uses infrared (IR) waves, which can use radio frequency (RF). And the term is well understood, it is the way to communicate without the use of a physical medium, which in this case is the cable.

So what medium is used to transfer data and information, this is done through the air and with the use of electromagnetic waves. That microwaves and radios are routinely used. And the way these electromagnetic waves are transmitted and sent is through an emitting device.



This sends the coded information through the air and the receiver captures these waves, decodes them and interprets the information. These forms of communication offer us enormous advantages that go beyond doing without cables. And it is the fact that information travels faster and faster, we mean very high speed.

Advantages and disadvantages of wireless networking technology

This wireless technology it offers man very great and obvious advantages, which has allowed its use to spread all over the world. And this leads us to think that we will live in a world totally connected by these waves that facilitate communication. But it also talks about the progress that can be made in this matter, that connections can be made through light.

One of the most notable advantages of this wireless technology is that we can be anywhere and if there are Internet connections, for example the WiFi network. We will be able to connect without any problem, another of the great advantages that communication via wireless networks has is the considerable savings in the installation of these networks and in their maintenance.

Its use has become very widespread in those professionals who are in remote areas of the planet and to have access, for example, to medical centers, management meetings, etc. They use these means for communication, consultation, the donation of dynasties and even for a friendship meeting, all this and more allow this type of technology.


We see this marvel of technology on our mobile devices every day, where we can receive and send information, data, while on the move. But all is not rosy, there are also very marked and dangerous disadvantages as it is, the intersection of these signals that travel through the air by unauthorized persons.


Although we could talk a lot more about this technology taking over our world every day, but in this short article we could not cover everything that can be said. We hope to do another tutorial on this topic, but in this one I think it was very clear how wireless networking technology works.
