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®.”
