                                                 What is WiFi?
  CISCO AIRONET 1200   I WIRELESS ACCESS POINT




 Is defined as Wireless Fidelity which is the
  formal term coined by a technology alliance
 Is wireless technology which permits a PC,
  laptop, or PDA to communicate with a network
  using radio waves
 A “WiFi Hotspot” is an area where WiFi is
  available




                                                                 2
               What do you Need?

 A Laptop or PDA that is WiFi capable
 The UN WiFi uses ONLY 802.11b or 802.11g
    standard
   802.11b transmits up to 11Mb per second
   802.11g transmits up to 54Mb per second
   Newer laptops with Centrino technology have this
    built in
   Older laptops can use a WiFi card installed into a slot
    on the side

                                                 How Does it Work?
  CISCO AIRONET 1200   I WIRELESS ACCESS POINT




 WiFi needs a transmitter/receiver like a two-way
  radio
 The WiFi transmitter/receiver that connects to the
  network is called a wireless Access Point (AP)
 A PC, laptop, or PDA that is WiFi capable will also
  have a transmitter/receiver
 WiFi power is weak compared to a two-way radio
  thus the range is only a few hundred feet at most
  when unobstructed
