There are many wireless networking standards, but the IEEE 802.11 family of standards for wireless Ethernet LANs have taken on critical importance in recent years as 802.11 technologies achieved wide deployment. Of the 802.11 standards, four most often come to mind in regards to wireless stations (abbreviated STA in the IEEE specifications). Nucleus 802.11 STA supports the 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g and 802.11d standards to provide robust, efficient and highly portable wireless Ethernet connectivity for embedded systems based on the Nucleus RTOS.
