What types of Wireless Networks exist?
There are 4 main types of wireless networks: Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANS), Wireless Personal Area Networks (WPANS), Wireless Metropolitan Area Networks (WMANS) and wireless Wide Area Networks (WWANS). Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANS) - People that are in local areas like a coffee shop or a library, can access internet through WLANS. Wireless Personal Area Networks (WPANS) - On WLANS, two technologies (Infra-Red and Bluetooth) are used to connect personal devices. Wireless Metropolitan Area Networks (WMANS) - This type of wireless network is used in metropolitan areas, for example within a city, between buildings. Wireless Wide Area Networks (WWANS) - This form of wireless network differs from wireless local area network (WLAN) by using mobile telecommunication cellular network technologies such as 2G, 3G, 4G LTE, and 5G to transfer data.
