HIstory of Wi-Fi

History of technology “Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) 802.11” originated in the U.S. Federal Communications Commission’s decision in 1985 to release a GSM bands for unlicensed use. In 1991, NCR Corporation with AT & T found 802.11 precursor used for system checkout. The first wireless products were WaveLAN.Gambar

Vic Hayes is a scientist known as the “Father of Wi-Fi”. He was involved in the design of the first IEEE standard.

A large number of companies using the 802.11 standard. In 1992 and 1996, CSIRO Australia organization obtained a patent for a method that would be used in the Wi-Fi signal to remove interference. In April 2009, 14 technology companies agreed to pay $ 250 million to CSIRO for violating their patents. This is the reason why the Wi-Fi called the Australian findings, although it has become a controversial topic. CSIRO won a lawsuit worth $ 220 million for patent infringement Wi-Fi in 2012 that asks global firms in the United States pay for the licensing rights to the CSIRO worth $ 1 billion.

In 1999, the Wi-Fi Alliance was formed as a trade association to hold the Wi-Fi trademark is used by many products.

perngertian Wi-Fi was first used commercially in August 1999, it was announced by a brand consulting firm called Interbrand Corporation. Wi-Fi Alliance hired Interbrand to specify the name of the “easier said than ‘IEEE 802.11b Direct Sequence'”. Belanger also stated that Interbrand creates a Wi-Fi as a play on the Hi-Fi (high fidelity), they also designed the Wi-Fi logo.

Wi-Fi Alliance initially used the advertising slogan for Wi-Fi, “The Standard for Wireless Fidelity”, but later removed from their marketing. Even so, a number of documents from the Alliance in 2003 and 2004 still use the term Wireless Fidelity. There has been no official statement regarding the removal of this term.

Technology non-Wi-Fi is required to keep the points such as Motorola Canopy are usually called fixed wireless. Alternative wireless technologies include mobile phone standards such as 2G, 3G, or 4G

  1. we should be grateful to anyone who has created wi-fi, because that is very useful in our life today. by using wi-fi we can easy to access the internet and connect to computer network so we can easily transfer or receive data. the good thing about wi-fi is we don’t have to plug cable because it wireless. I can’t imagine if we live without wi-fi nowadays…
