Bandwidth. Data Rate. Throughput. What’s the difference?

Let’s discuss the similarities and differences in bandwidth, data rate and throughput. In the wireless industry, these words are used interchangeably and can sometimes be a little bit confusing. All three of these terms help define the speed at which a device or network sends and receives data. Let’s define them and then discuss the differences and similarities as we use them in the world of wireless.

Wireless Networking Limits - Part 2 of 3 - Throughput

At AvaLAN Wireless, we have done our best to design our products in such a way as to push the limits of possibility, sometimes even venturing into the realms of the unfathomable. However, the Laws of Physics and the Universe still govern much of what we can and cannot do. We still have limits. The trick to making the most of our products is to know those limits. Knowing your limitations is not just beneficial to your project, it is crucial to its success. Knowing your limitations will save you time, money, effort, and especially frustration.

Wireless Networking Limits - Part 1 of 3 - Line of Sight

At AvaLAN Wireless, we have done our best to design our products in such a way as to push the limits of possibility, sometimes even venturing into the realms of the unfathomable. However, the Laws of Physics and the Universe still govern much of what we can and cannot do. We still have limits. The trick to making the most of our products is to know those limits. Knowing your limitations is not just beneficial to your project, it is crucial to its success. Knowing your limitations will save you time, money, effort, and especially frustration. Today I would like to talk about some of the basic limitations of the 300Mbps 5.8GHz Radios (AW58300HTA, AW58300HTS, and AW58300HTP-PAIR). These include line of sight, throughput and Gigabit cable lengths. In Part 1, we will discuss the line of site limitations.

Bandwidth vs Throughput

Bandwidth refers to how fast a device can send data over a single cable usually measured in bits per second. A great example of bandwidth is to imagine a Four-lane highway with traffic going in the same direction.  The total width of the highway determines how many cars if side-by-side can fit on the road.

How Do You Determine How Much Throughput You Need For Video Surveillance?

Over the years, video surveillance has become almost a necessity for any home and business security plan. Along with Video Monitoring & Surveillance Devices, high tech locks, access control systems, security alarm, etc. are being widely used by a number of house owners all around the world. For homes, the installation of video surveillance ensures that there is no trespassing, forced entry or theft. Likewise, businesses are vulnerable to various crimes and security issues; thus, installing a video surveillance system helps in monitoring the workplace and the entire system.
