What is the Full Form of Wi-Fi?
A common misunderstanding is that Wi-Fi is a short form of wireless fidelity. Wi-Fi is actually a trademarked IEEE 802.11x term. It was coined by a marketing firm as a catchy name for the technology and was not originally meant as a short form for wireless fidelity. But the notion has become widely accepted now.
Wi-Fi makes an electronic gadget utilize ISM radio frequencies to transfer data or link to the Internet. A WLAN (wireless local area network) system underlies it. Wi-Fi allows other systems to be in contact with electronic devices over a wireless network.
Wi-Fi devices are focused on one of the IEEE-developed 802.11 standards and are supported by the Wi-Fi alliance. It offers a simple way to establish wireless network connections.
Applications of Wi-Fi
Wi-Fi can be used to build a hotspot within 66 feet (20 meters) distance. It’s less secure than wired communication since to use Wi-Fi, the attacker doesn’t need the physical connection.
Wi-Fi could be used on different devices, including the following:
- Video game consoles
- Personal computers
- Digital camera
- Tablet computers and so on.
