VIII Wireless Networking
(Page 1 of 3)
Though not a physical cable technology per se, wireless networking is sometimes used as a replacement for physical network cabling, so well discuss it as part of our survey of LAN cable options. Wireless networking typically transmits data through RF (radio frequency) signals, though sometimes IR (infrared) technology is used for data transfer.
The two major emerging wireless standards today are the 802.11x family and Bluetooth. The 802.11x technologies are more likely to be seen in typical IT settings today than is Bluetooth, since Bluetooth is currently more oriented to general consumer device communication than IT networking. Aggressive MS support coming shortly.
