The Full Form of WIFI is Wireless Fidelity. Wi-Fi networks have no physical wired connection between the sender and the receiver so for the connection it’s using radiofrequency technology which is a frequency within the electromagnetic spectrum associated with radio wave propagation. An electromagnetic field is created when a radiofrequency current is supplied to an antenna then it’s able to propagate through space.
In 1997 Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) LAN/MAN Standards Committee released first Wireless Fidelity and named it as IEEE 802.11. It’s created and maintained by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) LAN/MAN Standards Committee.
In the technical word, the IEEE 802.11 having the protocols that enable communications with current Wi-Fi-enabled wireless devices, including wireless access & points wireless routers. Wireless access points support different IEEE standards. Each standard is an amendment from time to time by developing or rectifying. The standards operate to support different numbers of channels, deliver different bandwidth & varying frequencies.
Full Form of WIFI is : Wireless Fidelity
The wireless access point takes the bandwidth coming from a router then spreads it so that many devices can go on the network from further distances. So a wireless access point does more than simply extend Wi-Fi(Wireless Fidelity). It gives useful data about the devices on the network, provides proactive security and serves many other practical purposes.
