Comparing Performance of 802.11b and 802.11a Wireless Technologies

In order to be successful, any wireless technology must demonstrate performance in the areas of range, throughput, type of service, and coverage. The IEEE 802.11b wireless local area network (WLAN) standard takes an interesting approach to these questions. It implements an adaptive method that uses different modulation techniques to achieve a long range with reduced bit rates and a shorter range with higher bit rates. 802.11b technology has been very successful and its performance is well understood.
