A piconet is a small Bluetooth network that connects mobile devices wirelessly over a short range of 10m radius, using ultra-high frequency (UHF) radio waves, to form a personal area network (PAN).A piconet can be formed by at most 8 stations, one of which is the master node and the rest slave nodes. Thus, it can accommodate a maximum of 7 slaves. The master node is the primary station that manages the small network. The slave stations are secondary stations that are synchronized with the primary station.Communication can take place between a master node and a slave node in either ... Read More

A scatternet is a type of Bluetooth network that is formed by the interconnection between two or more individual Bluetooth networks, called piconets. The devices in the scattered should be Bluetooth enabled so that they can communicate wirelessly over a short range of within 10m radius using ultra-high frequency (UHF) radio waves.In a scatternet, there must be at least two piconets. The nodes in a scatternet may be of three types −Master Node − It is the primary station in each piconet that controls the communication within that piconet.Slave Node − A slave is a secondary station in a piconet ...

A Token Bus Network is a network protocol used to transmit data. In a Token Bus Network, a virtual ring is formed between nodes/stations and token is transferred from one station to another in a sequential manner. Each node in a Token Bus Network knows the address of its successor and predecessor and can transmit data if it has the token. A Token Ring Network is similar to a Token Bus Network but it works around the physical ring instead of a virtual ring. A token is passed from one node to another in a sequential manner and each node ... Read More

Both CSMA/CA and CSMA/CD are network protocols for transmission that operate in the Medium Access Control Layer, however there are significant differences in the way they operate. Read through this article to find out more about CSMA/CA and CSMA/CD and how they are different from each other.What is CSMA/CA?CSMA/CA is a network protocol for carrier transmission that stands for Carrier Sense Multiple Access with Collision Avoidance. It works in the same media access control layer as CSMA/CD. This protocol is effective before the collision.Algorithm of CSMA/CAThe algorithm of CSMA/CA is as follows −When a frame is ready, the transmitting station ... Read More

There are several types of computer and mobile networks to connect world’s digital devices to communicate and share data with each other. These communication technologies provide an efficient way of connecting devices for data sharing and internet access. In this article, we will discuss the major differences between cellular and WiFi networks. The basic difference between the two is that a WiFi network uses micro and radio waves to provide high-speed data transfer among different computing devices, whereas a cellular network uses mobile towers to enable mobile device communication and provide internet access on the device. Other important differences between ... Read More

Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) is a protocol used for 2G and 3G communication. In CDMA, a channel carries all types of transmission simultaneously without division of bandwidth or time. Data from different stations is transmitted simultaneously using different code modulation.Long-Term Evolution (LTE) is a high-performance interface for cellular mobile communications. It supports high-speed networks and at present, it is the fastest network protocol for smartphones and mobile phones.Read through this article to find out more about CDMA and LTE and how they are different from each other.What is CDMA?CDMA uses a single channel to carry all signals at the ...
