Wi-Fi Full Form

What is the Full Form of Wi-Fi?

A common misconception is that Wi-Fi is short for 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 to be an acronym for Wireless Fidelity. But this notion has now become widely accepted.

Wi-Fi uses ISM radio frequencies to transfer data to an electronic gadget or link it to the Internet. A WLAN (Wireless Local Area Network) system is its basis. Wi-Fi allows other systems to stay in touch 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 provides a simple way to establish a wireless network connection.

Applications of Wi-Fi

Wi-Fi can be used to create a hotspot within a distance of 66 feet (20 meters). It is less secure than wired communication because an attacker does not need a physical connection to use Wi-Fi.

Wi-Fi could be used on different devices, including the following:

  • Video game consoles
  • Personal computers
  • Digital camera
  • Smartphones
  • Tablet computers and so on.
