Network Connection

WiFi Access

A wireless LAN (WLAN) is a communication system implemented to link two or more devices or computers without using wires. Using radio waves, WLAN transmit and receive data over the air, minimizing the need for wired connections. Thus, WLAN gives users the mobility to move around within a broad coverage area and still be connected to the network.
