Wi-Fi is the trademark of Wi-Fi Alliance covering the functionality defined by the set of IEEE 802.11 standards. This set of standards defines so-called Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) operation principles. This name comes from the idea that Wi-Fi should provide LAN-like functionality over the air. It concerns frequency bands used, possible supported data rates, data and management frame formats etc.
