Using Wi-Fi, computers and other devices can be connected to the Internet very easily. Wi-Fi connections are smart and convenient as there is no need to use wires. The places of connectivity are called hot spots. These are sometimes rooms and sometimes these are spread in large areas. The most important benefit is that they provide freedom from the web of wires. Wireless fidelity (Wi-Fi) was first launched in the year 1999. IEEE 802.11 is the Wi-Fi code largely accepted all over the world. Wi-Fi has changed the way people use Internet.
The reason why it is getting popular is that it is very smooth as compared to the broadband network. The oldest Wi-Fi versions are very fast as compared to broadband. There is an antenna on the roofs of the building installed to spread signals in the specified area. Since the launch of its first version there are versions like 802.11n and 802.11ac. As the technology is getting advanced, data transfer rate is increasing. 1GBps is really a great speed and makes the clients able to transfer data with a lightening fast speed. Because of the convenience offered by Wi-Fi, the number of users is increasing very fast; it is going to cross the mark of 1 billion in the year 2015.
The reason behind the increasing popularity is that it is convenient to get connected and it is fast as compared to the earlier versions of broadband connections. It is really great to get connected without plugging in somewhere. With its arrival it has changed the way people get connected to the world. 802.11ac is the new definition of connectivity. It is time to say good bye to your old broadband connections. It is loved all over the world because it is fast. It is expected that markets are going to be flooded with Wi-Fi in next couple of years.
It has started to capture the market with its hotspots (the connectivity points). It depends on the strength of the signal how it is strong and how it is going to be used. It is simple to connect your devices with this new age technology. You need to just enter the required information and it is all done.
