BPSK

Binary Phase Shift Keying (BPSK) is a method for representing bits with an analog signal, in our case turning the digital electrical signals in our PCs and APs into wireless radio waves.

BPSK is highly clear of multipath propagation, but is unused in high data rate applications because of bandwidth inefficiency.

In terms of 802.11b, BPSK is only used when 1Mbps data rates are in use, above this threshold, QPSK is generally used.
