Wireless Signals

Wireless signals are all around us as we walk or drive around the city or town where we live. The four types of wireless technologies that are out there are Wi-Fi, Cellular, Bluetooth, and WiMAX. We will be looking at these types of wireless technologies a little more in depth, where are they most commonly used, and how they differ from one another. The first wireless technology that we will be looking at is the Wi-Fi wireless signal. The Wi-Fi signal is mainly associated with computer networking, the specification used to create a wireless local area network is the IEEE 802.11. One would use this type of wireless technology if you were a business owner opening up a coffee shop and needed a public network. The network would have a wired connection to an internet source, then leading to a wireless router that transmits and receives the data from all of the customer’s devices that want to use the Wi-Fi. This will also connect all of the devices to one another through the network. The next type of wireless technology that we will be looking at is Cellular. This type of wireless technology is most often associated with wireless telephones. The cellular network is connected to cells that will enable a user to move around freely while staying connected to the network. This type of signal is used everywhere you go nowadays and are used by everyone. There are a multitude of devices that use these networks at one time and those include, smart phones, tablets, and some computers can use the cell towers to get a signal to be able to use the internet. The first generation of cellular signals was completely analog, and from there with the growing demand of faster speeds and better connectivity technology brought us 2G, 3G, and the ever popular 4G phones. Bluetooth is the next technology that we will touch on and is very similar to the Wi-Fi and cellular networks but on

    Wireless ad hoc networks have emerged to support applications, in which it is required/desired to have wireless variety of devices without relying on communications among a any infrastructure or central management. In ad hoc networks, wireless devices, simply called nodes, have limited transmission range. Therefore, each node can directly communicate with only those within its transmission range (i.e., its neighbours) and requires other nodes to act as routers in order to communicate with out-of-range destinations.…

    Abstract- GSM based electronic notice display system is presented in this paper, this is the model for displaying notices in college on electronic notice board by sending messages in form of SMS through mobile, it is a wireless transmission system which has very less errors and maintenance. The hardware board contains microcontroller 89c51 at the heart of the system. The microcontroller is interfaced with PC via MAX232 level convertor. It is used to convert RS232 voltage levels to TTL voltage levels and vice versa. We use PC's serial port to interface microcontroller. The hardware also has a 64K EEPROM chip AT24C64. This EEPROM is used to store the timings and messages to be displayed. Hardware also contains a real time clock DS1307 to maintain track of time. Both these ICs are interfaced with microcontroller using I2C interface. The keypad is used to set/reset parameters directly. A 4x4 keypad is attached using Row Column configuration. A 16x2 Character LCD display is attached in byte mode to port 1 of microcontroller. This display will be used to display the messages / advertisements. Microcontroller coding will be done using Embedded C and Kiel. PC Coding will be done using VB. Nokia PC Connectivity SDK is a tool used in VB for GSM Modem interfacing, this project implementation will save time, also cost efficient. a single person can handle all the work with just a message. We can use a PC with administrator for ease of message sending and keeping records.…
