What's the Difference Between Frequency Bands and Channels?

For any organization or practitioner new to wireless radio communication, some of the general concepts around radio transmission can be elusive. For the means of this short overview, let's start with the basic concepts related to radio transmission. Radio transmission is facilitated by transmitting radio waves between a radio transmitter and receiver. The radio transmitter emits radio waves defined by the frequency of the oscillating wave known as frequency. Radio waves are defined by a certain range of frequencies known as a frequency band, and any other waves that oscillator faster than what's defined in that frequency band would be categorized as a different type of waves such as infrared, visible light, ultra-violet, X-Ray, or Gamma Rays.

Once the concept of radio frequency is understood, frequency channels are simply just agreed upon radio frequency ranges that facilitate radio communication.
