Wireless networks use radio waves to transmit data and connect devices to the Internet as well as to other networks and applications, which minimizes the need for wired connections. Although a wireless network allows users to access network resources 'over-the-air', it is important keep in mind that wireless traffic also traverses the physical wired infrastructure. Therefore, it is imperative to remember that Wireless Local Area Networks are meant to augment, rather than replace, the wired LAN campus infrastructure. This augmentation allows for a flexible data communication system within the enterprise network.
