What Is Wi-Fi?
The term “Wi-Fi” was created by the nonprofit Wi-Fi Alliance, and it refers to a group of wireless networking protocols based on the IEEE 802.11 network standard. Wi-Fi has been around since the late ‘90s but has improved dramatically in the last decade.
To make the differences between each generation more apparent, the Wi-Fi alliance recently adopted a more traditional naming convention, dropping the 802.XX designation for a simplified numerical suffix. This more straightforward labeling convention (Wi-Fi 6 vs. 802.11ax) makes it easier to know what generation of the technology is being used and determine compatibility with devices that support that version.
Intel offers Wi-Fi solution for different segments:
