What's another name for Wi-Fi?


 802.11 Standards Explained: 802.11ac, 802.11b/g/n, 802.11a
Home and business owners looking to buy networking gear face an array of choices. Many products conform to the 802.11a, 802.11b/g/n, and/or 802.11ac wireless standards collectively known as Wi-Fi technologies. Bluetooth and various other wireless (but not Wi-Fi) technologies also permeate the market, each designed for specific networking applications.
For quick reference, 801.11aj is the most recently approved standard. The protocol was approved in May 2018. Just because a standard is approved, however, does not mean it is available to you or that it is the standard you need for your particular situation. Standards are always being updated, much like the way software is updated in a smartphone or on your computer.
