Get to Know WiFi 
Presented by
Cameron Crum
 of Dot11 Networks

Within the past 5 years, a new high-speed wireless technology known as "Wi-Fi" has been gaining popularity both in the corporate and commercial retail markets. This technology, which allows computers to communicate in an unlicensed spectrum at data rates better than or equal to a hard line connection is being used in a wide variety of applications from unwiring corporate networks, to selling high speed internet service to rural parts of America. Virtually anywhere you might travel these days from coffee shops, to airports, to hotels, to conference centers, high speed wireless connectivity is being offered. You can even buy wireless routers for your home to unwire yourself. The applications for using the technology are wide ranging and the potential for growth not only in the wi-fi industry itself, but also for those who can maximize the potential benefits of the technology is tremendous.
