LAN/WLAN System Details
Local Area Network (LAN) System/ Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN)
LAN/WLAN systems are types of computer networks that are used to connect devices within a limited geographical area such as a home, office, factory or campus.
LAN – Network Interface Card (NIC), Switch, Router, Ethernet Cabling, Network Operating System (NOS), Network Management Tools, Network Security Devices
WLAN –Wireless Access Point (WAP) or Access Point (AP),Wireless Clients, Antennas, Wireless LAN Controller, Network Interface Cards, Network Infrastructure
Cisco, DELL, Fortinet, Ruckus, HP
The Difference between LAN/WLAN Systems
LAN/WLAN systems differ to each other.
A LAN system typically uses wired Ethernet cables to connect devices to a central switch or router, which allows devices to communicate with each other and with other networks such as the internet.
A WLAN system uses wireless radio signals to connect devices to a wireless access point, which serves as a bridge between the wireless devices and the wired LAN.
LAN/WLAN Systems for Harsh and Hazardous Environments
LAN/WLAN systems designed for harsh and hazardous environments are essential for industries like oil and gas, mining, and manufacturing. These environments pose unique challenges, including extreme temperatures, high humidity, corrosive substances, and potentially explosive atmospheres.
Robust LAN/WLAN solutions must be ruggedized, intrinsically safe, and capable of reliable data transmission in such conditions. Specialized equipment such as industrial-grade switches, access points, and antennas are deployed to withstand harsh elements. These systems utilize advanced technologies like industrial-grade enclosures, protective coatings, and sealing mechanisms to ensure durability and resistance to environmental stressors.
Additionally, they employ encryption, authentication, and access control measures to secure sensitive data, providing a safe and efficient network infrastructure for critical operations.
