I’ve been working with Wi-Fi for several years now and one of the questions I sometimes get is:
What does Wi-Fi mean? Is it wireless fidelity or does it mean something else.
I can tell you that it’s not an acronym for Wireless Fidelity..
Wi-Fi is just a marketing name invented by the Wi-Fi Alliance which used to be named the WECA (Wireless Ethernet Compatibility Allience).
Just as WME (wireless multimedia extensions) is a marketing name that actually means 802 sildenafil tablets 100mg.11e.
