Wireless LAN(Local Area Network)

Wireless LAN transmits using radio frequencies ,so that they are regulated by the same legal regulation that govern other radio transmitters such as HAM radios.The Federal Communication Commissin (FCC) regulates the wireless LAN devices’ use of the RF spectrum.Meanwhile, the institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) define standards for how RF tranasmissions can be used to carry data.Several accepted operational standards and drafts in the United States have been created and maintained by the IEEE.
