Wi-Fi's history and future #infographic

The History and Future of Wifi

Although the Internet that we are acquainted with today has only been around in the 1990s, researchers and inventors around the world have been theorizing about a digital, instantaneous linked service scheme. Today we are predicting a future of 20 billion IoT devices globally, which is 2.6 times higher than the amount now.

The theoretical concepts articulated by minds such as Paul Otlet and Nikola Tesla enabled real-life applications to be tested. Localized versions of wireless links were used from the 1970s to the 1980s, such as ALOHAnet and AT&T's WaveLAN. Rapid growth began in the 1990s when Carnegie Mellon's first large-scale cable network was installed, and in 1999 the Wi-Fi trade association itself marked the word Wi-Fi.

 There's nothing fresh under the sun–there's a lengthy tale to say even the eight billion WiFi-connected phones on Earth. For more information on WiFi's history and future, see this infographic.
