Coexistence and Interoperability are very important, but often confused, concepts in the world of networking technologies. Many users mistake one for the other; leading to false expectations in the expansion of their network because of these very different concepts.
This white paper describes the two different concepts and their role in providing the best possible user experience and avoiding false expectations from users looking to expand their network.
It explains the importance of interoperability in networking technologies and how this allows different chipsets to send and receive data between each other. Coexistence is a different concept, as it attempts to solve the problem of devices using different, non-interoperable technologies on the same physical network segment.
