Wireless LAN (WLAN) Devices
Wireless local area networks (WLAN) have become part of the network backbone of many corporations and organizations. A WLAN will link
mobile computers and devices to the enterprise network and allow them access to corporate data. They employ a wireless radio frequency (RF)
signal as a carrier for transmitting messages between mobile electronic devices. An access point device is used to connect such mobile computers
to the LAN and typically allow users access to the wider Internet. By using WLAN access points users are given the mobility to roam within a coverage
area and remain connected to the local network. WLAN devices adhere to the IEEE 802.11 standards and are known as Wi-Fi devices. A WLAN can be comprised
of Access Points, Client Radios, Wireless Broadband Networks, Wireless Controllers, WLAN Management and Security Software, and Accessories such as Antennas,
Cables, Mounting Kits, Power Over Ethernet, Power Supplies, Adapters, and Lightning Arrestors.

Current wireless LANs offer a host of features and are becoming easier to install and manage. They are popular in home use because they do not require wiring to run in the walls of homes. Likewise, in commercial complexes wireless access to customers is often a service that is provided at no charge to enhance customer satisfaction. In corporations, a WLAN is essential to collect mission-critical data to offer real-time access to the health of the operation. Manufacturing, supply-chain, and retail establishments can monitor and account for items from creation to consumption by customers.
The access points of a WLAN system is the on-ramp for mobile computers so that they can gain access to the information they require to be useful to users. Access points have been designed for every type of network application. Large and small organizations deploy access points designed for their everyday operations. Some feature enhanced roaming capabilities that eliminate the need for users to re-authenticate as they roam from one access point to another. Some feature enhance security to prevent network breaches and secure customer information. Some also feature sharing services seamlessly across the wireless network so users can maintain access to services as AirPrint, AirPlay, file sharing, collaboration applications, and others.
