Unit 6 Lab and Review John E. Garner ITT Technical Institute Introduction to Networking NT1210 Cleber Laranja 7/29/2014 6.1.1 There are two main types of service sets: Basic Service Sets ( BSS) and Extended Service Sets ( ESS). Define these two terms and identify where they are most useful. Use your textbook and Internet research to compose your answer. Basic Service Set (BSS): * Offers basic wireless service with one—and only one—AP to create wireless LAN * Each wireless client connects to network through AP * AP controls BSS, with all wireless frames flowing either to AP from user devices or from AP back to user devices Extended Service Set (ESS): Extends wireless functions of BSS * In BSS, AP defines SSID * In ESS, all APs use same SSID and cooperate to create WLAN 6.1.2 Standard | GHz | Max Mbps | S I T | S O T | A | 5 | 54 | 40 | 100 | B | 2.4 | 11 | 70 | 150 | G | 2.4 | 54 | 80 | 200 | N | 2.4 or 5 | 600(4x4@) | 100 | 250 | 6.1.2 1. Another type of service set is the Independent Basic Service Set ( IBSS), which does not require a central AP. How does this type of network function, and how is the SSID broadcast in this type of service set? * Ad-hoc wireless LAN: Provides very basic WLAN service by letting two (or more) WLAN devices send data directly without AP  * Two wireless devices connect directly via their WLAN NICs to send data to one another * Known formally as Independent Basic Service Set (IBSS) * Gives users flexibility as no AP is needed for Connectivity 2. Another type of wireless connection is infrared ( used for point- to- point communication called beaming). What is the limitation of this type of wireless communication? Why is radio frequency wireless communication superior in versatility and performance? * deployment of point-to-point
