Wireless Local Area Networks (WLAN), use an industry standard known as 802.11. WLAN’s are typically used in confined areas within an organization, such as a warehouse, factory or retail store, and can be considered the wireless extension of the local area network. WLAN’s may also extend beyond the four walls, providing network connectivity for outside storage areas, docks, and between multiple buildings. The working range of a WLAN can vary greatly and will be affected by environmental variables, so a wireless site survey is highly recommended. Contact TPI for more information regarding site surveys.
Bluetooth is the most widely used Wireless Personal Area Network (WPAN) standard. Bluetooth allows the transmission of data between Bluetooth-compatible devices such as cellular phones, computers, portable data terminals and bar code printers or scanners. Bluetooth technology may provide a range of up to 100 meters, depending on the radio classification and environmental conditions.
