Communication Systems can be Wired or Wireless and the medium used for communication can be Guided or Unguided. In wired technology, communication or transmission of information is done via a medium (also called guided medium) such as co-axial cables, twisted pair cables and optical fiber links; which guides the propagation from one point to another. In wireless technology, communication or transmission of information is done via free space (air) using electromagnetic waves such as radio

This is necessary for additional data processing and evaluation, and different wireless technologies fulfill this purpose. This paper is focused on elements of wireless technology, types, advantage and disadvantage, as well as literature review on various applications and improvements of wireless technology and systems. Additionally, a comparative analysis between the various types of wireless technology based on different aspects and their characteristics was discussed. This paper will serve as a benchmark in wireless technology and use of a particular wireless technology based on the requirement of the application. Word Count: 189
