25th Anniversary of IEEE 802.11™

About

IEEE 802.11™ HELPS THE WORLD SAY HELLO.

Since 1990, IEEE 802.11 working group participants have developed standards that help enable applications that allow us to communicate with one another in real time from anywhere in the world.

IEEE 802.11 standards underpin wireless networking applications, such as wireless access to the Internet from offices, homes, airports, hotels, restaurants, trains and aircraft.

Today’s computers, smart phones, and tablets are often equipped with an IEEE 802.11 radio, more commonly known as “Wi-Fi®.”

25 years later, IEEE 802.11 working group participants continue to push the limits of technology enabling new devices and applications such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and smart grid.
