What does WiFi mean?
Wi-Fi is a mechanism that allows electronic devices to exchange data wirelessly over a computer network. “Wi-Fi” is a trademark of the Wi-Fi Alliance and the brand name for products using the IEEE 802.11 family of standards.
The term Wi-Fi suggests Wireless Fidelity, resembling the long-established audio-equipment classification term High Fidelity (Hi-Fi).
