Multi-pronged Benefits of Wi-Fi Provide Strong Traction for the Market

Wi-Fi is one of the most versatile wireless technologies in existence today. When the technology was first introduced in the market, it was primarily used for facilitating wireless Internet connectivity. However, owing to the pioneering efforts of the 802.11 standards body, the Wi-Fi Alliance and companies developing Wi-Fi solutions, the technology is gradually being deployed for facilitating applications such as location tracking, wireless video delivery, wireless voice over Internet protocol (VoIP), mobile Internet and embedded networking. With the ratification of the latest Wi-Fi standard, namely 802.11n, in September 2009, the market for Wi-Fi devices is expected to transition from the conventional 802.11b/g-based devices to high-speed 802.11n-based devices. 802.11n standard promises to facilitate enhanced data rates, greater reliability and predictable coverage when compared to legacy Wi-Fi standards. "Recent trends indicate that users are increasingly using portable devices within homes, offices and other indoor spaces. Wireless connectivity is vital if the users need to reap maximum benefits from the READ MORE >
