Wi-Fi

“Wi-Fi (short for ‘wireless fidelity’) is a term for certain types of wireless local area network (WLAN) that use specifications in the 802.11 family. The term Wi-Fi was created by an organization called the Wi-Fi Alliance, which oversees tests that certify product interoperability. A product that passes the alliance tests is given the label ‘Wi-Fi certified’ (a registered trademark)” (http://searchmobilecomputing.techtarget.com/sDefinition/0,,sid40_gci838865,00.html).
