Wireless Connections Explained
There are many different terms used to describe wireless mice; bluetooth mouse, wifi mouse and cordless mouse are a few popular names. However, they all describe a peripheral device that doesn’t require a physical connection to your system in order for it to function.
Strictly speaking, there are two main categories of wireless connections: Bluetooth and RF wireless mice. These simply refer to the way data is transmitted from the hardware to your computer. For more information please read below:
RF Wireless Mice
The most common wireless mouse connection is radio frequency or RF. The first wireless mice used a frequency of 27Mhz which was fairly limited. Newer models typically operate at around 2.4 Ghz (up to 150 feet).
Because it’s radio-based it requires two components: a transmitter and a receiver. The transmitter is located inside the mouse. This sends the electromagnetic signal to the receiver. The receiver then transfers this information to your system. There are two types: the first is inbuilt into the mouse, while the second type comes as a separate unit that plugs into the computer’s peripheral input.
This is an emerging wireless mouse technology that is becoming increasingly popular. Bluetooth is used to connect other peripheral devices such as keyboards and printers. For the user, the difference between RF and Bluetooth RF is largely unnoticeable. The only difference is that a Bluetooth mouse will have a lower frequency range (typically of around 35 feet) when compared to RF wireless mice.
What Are the Advantages of Choosing a Wireless Mouse?
There are several advantages to choosing a wireless mouse.
Traditional mice use a cable connection, and subsequently the length of the mouse cable can cause issues. For this reason, Bluetooth and wireless mice have become increasingly popular. Depending on your setup, traditional mice may restrict the mouse location, range or movement. Over time this can cause discomfort and even repetitive strain injury as a result of holding the arm in an unnatural position. Bluetooth and wireless mice solve this by enabling the user to position the mouse where it’s best for them. And because they’re not attached to a cable, the user is able to move the mouse freely, which is especially useful for multiple monitor users and gamers.
Nowadays there are multiple system setups that affect where the mouse is used. In particular, super-wide monitors require the user to be sat at a distance from the system. Wireless mice are a simple and effective solution when it comes to controlling your computer remotely.
Because security can be an issue when transmitting information in signals, in addition to being practical, wireless mice are secure, too. Most wireless mouse also feature data encryption to prevent any information from being intercepted. A second form of protection known as frequency hopping, which uses many frequency channels and pseudorandom sequence, is also common among many wireless mouse models.
