A few decades ago, many people got exhilarated about the idea of wireless communication. The prospect that the public can take advantage of it is exciting. Back then, the technology was still in its infancy stage and its foundations are still being planned.
But this cutting-edge technology would not have been made possible if not for GPS antennas and WiFi antennas. It paved the way for the advent of wireless communication to take place.
Everyone will agree with me in saying that this is the start of something new for all of us. We dare say that it revolutionized the manner we share and exchange information, of which we are enjoying the benefits today.
Defining Wireless Communication
What is the simplest way to define wireless communication? It is the transfer or the exchange of information, from one media to another, despite the absence of something physical to connect or link them together. But by virtue of electrical conduction, linking of the two is made possible though.
What is Antenna?
Technically speaking, an antenna is a device that will help convert electrical signals into EM waves. Then what happens next is that it would be radiated up, into the sky or atmosphere. The work of the receiving antenna is just about to begin here. It will catch the EM waves from the atmosphere, and revert them to the original form which is electrical signals, to be processed even further.
When it comes to the different parts of the antenna and their dimensions, it would be in line with the transmitted EM wave frequency. As for the antenna components and their dimensions, the distinction they come in will match the transmitted signal frequency or the wavelength
The wireless communications devices that we have in the market today are designed to work with a significant amount of distance between them, but to work out great will necessitate the use of some kind of antenna technology.
These antennas may sometimes come in the form of an external accessory, in which case makes them easily observable like how routers are. Other antennas found in the market are equipped with a PCB module itself.
WiFi or Wireless Fidelity
WiFi is a qualified wireless technology. The vast majority of Australian homes have their respective home networks. It is a must for every home these days to have its own local network.
Home networks give the members of the household easy, convenient, and stable access to the Internet. Easy access to the World Wide Web means you have access to a myriad of information that is relevant to your needs and concerns. You can also remain updated with current events through various international online news portals.
If your home is equipped with a WiFi network, you won’t have a hard time establishing a line of communication with other people, regardless if they are in a different location or are situated in other parts of the globe.
The Internet is teeming with online voice communication applications. A good number of which comes with video conferencing capabilities too, and thus can be used for this purpose.
If you have a social media account, more or less you’d have a good idea of how these online communication systems work in terms of bridging the gap of time and space and linking people together, in real-time.
Not to mention also is the fact that we take advantage of the WiFi antenna in transferring files and information across devices at amazing warp speeds. Modern pieces of home and office equipment such as scanners, desktop and laptop computers, printers, and other similar hardware can be shared and accessed wirelessly.
