DESCRIPTION: Time Division Multiple Access Complete Definintion: Time Division Multiplex Access (TDMA). Type of multiplexing where two or more channels of information are transmitted over the same link by allocating a different time interval ("slot" or "slice") for the transmission of each channel, that is, the channels take turns to use the link. Some kind of periodic synchronizing signal or distinguishing identifier usually is required so that the receiver can tell which channel is which. See also TDM. Wikipedia TDMA Definition.

Introduction Cisco Wireless LAN Controllers work in conjunction with Cisco lightweight access points and the Cisco Wireless Control System (WCS) to provide system wide wireless LAN functions. As components of the Cisco Unified Wireless Network, Cisco 2100 Series Wireless LAN Controllers present network administrators with the visibility and control necessary to effectively and securely manage business-class WLANs and mobility services, such as voice, guest access, and location services. The Cisco 2106 Wireless LAN Controller works in conjunction with Cisco lightweight access points and the Cisco Wireless Control System ( WCS ) to provide system wide wireless LAN functions. As a component of the Cisco Unified Wireless Network, the Cisco 2106 Wireless LAN Controller gives network administrators the visibility and control necessary to effectively and securely manage business-class WLANs . The Cisco 2106 Wireless LAN Controller provides: A cost-effective solution for enterprise branch deployments and small and medium-sized business environments Business-class RF security and WLAN security policy monitoring Simplified network deployment, operations, and management to help reduce overall operational expenses These controllers are part of a Payment Card Industry (PCI) certified architecture, and are well suited for retail customers who deploy transactional data applications such as scanners and kiosks. With performance up to 100 Mbps, the Cisco 2100 Series Wireless LAN Controllers also enable small and medium branch offices to deploy collaboration applications such as guest access and mobile voice. While Cisco 2100 Series Wireless LAN Controllers support transaction-oriented wireless environments such as handheld scanners in retail, the Cisco 5500 Series Wireless Controllers are recommended for high-data-rate and multicast-intensive applications such as large data files, video, push-to-talk.
