Wireless LAN in action

Wireless LANs use electromagnetic radio waves, and in a typical wireless LAN system, a transmitter/receiver device (Access Point) connects to the wired network using the standard connection structure of an Ethernet connection. The Access Point is usually mounted on a wall, from where it sends and receives network signals between wireless LAN users and the wired network.


In large organisations:

  • Toshiba's wireless LAN technology is the ideal way to supplement an existing wired LAN infrastructure
  • Use it to provide a flexible bridge between existing static networks
  • Add wireless LAN to areas where it was previously inappropriate or too expensive to install - such as conference rooms, public areas, reception areas, manufacturing or warehousing environments
  • Makes hot-desking a more practical reality by allowing you to set up common work areas for employees who may be in the office on an occasional basis only
  • Allows small teams to set up their own private ad hoc networks - for example on the move around a building or at a client site

In small and medium-sized businesses:

  • Allows you to create instant hassle-free networks
  • Opens up new ways of working - for individuals, groups, for off-site teams and for mobile workers
  • Users collaborating on a project can instantly set up a peer-to-peer network to share files
  • Avoids the expense and inconvenience of wiring, especially in rented office space
