What is Wireless Access point ?
Post by Jawad Ahmad Riaz
Internet has a great impact on the latest technologies. It was first discovered by the people of 1960s through their visionary thinking. After further researches it becomes a power of modern world of information and technology. Within recent decay, it become all wireless. And we are all aware of the advantages wireless internet brought for us i.e. there is no hassle of cables, having more speed and have more security as compared to wired internet. Different devices are used to carry out the wireless networking.
In the technological world, Computer networking is a very vast and advanced field which has been implemented on many aspects of technology. In computer networking, there are so many devices which are used for networking purposes. It has many devices but one of them is very impotent and that is Wireless Access Point. A special kind of device which connects the different types of wireless communication devices that allows the process of communication between the wireless network and the wireless communicating devices with the help of different wireless technologies such as WiFi, Bluetooth and many more related to such technology. It is commonly called as WAP. Basically wireless access point was designed by the scientists because the people who are away from their homes, they can avail such opportunity of using the internet at very high speed and be in touch with others for the sake of their business enhancement in the best possible way. Wireless access point used the circuit technology to connect the computer with wireless network with help of router to carry on the communication.
Features of Wireless Access Point
Wireless access point includes lot of latest technological features that help out the users to do the networking in a good manner. Some important technological features of wireless access point are as follows
- It provides a very long coverage area for both indoor and outdoor networking at a very high speed. It covers a radius of 300 feet for indoor and covers a radius of 1800 feet for outdoor networking. In computer networking WAP do the perfect job and provides the best coverage over a long range.
- Another important feature of wireless access point is MAC addressing filtering; it is an important way of securing the networked data.
- Wireless access point also plays an important role in providing the encrypted security; you can secure your data by using wireless access point encrypted security. You can secure your data from 64 bits to 128 bits.
How Wireless Access Point Works?
Basically wireless access point works on the phenomenon of circuit technology that is created by your personal computer, router and the wireless networking device such as wireless access point. It starts working when turn on your operating system and then connect it with wireless network and when u enter the URL in your window browser that supports your wireless access point. Then this information move towards the WAP gate way server, where the processing or translation of data carried out. This WAP gate way server translates the data from simple format to HTTP formatr and after translation sends it towards the web site with help of connected router. When the web site received the translated data, it will change it into HTML document, here it send this document again to the wireless access point server that converts the document into the new format, this time the format would be WML. Then this converted data with the help of router send to the nearest antenna. Now with the help of radio waves antenna continue the routing of translated data and send it your wireless access point device, it receives the data and display on the screen with help of window browser.
