From High Fidelity to Wireless Fidelity

Posted by Carl E. Reid Saturday, December 31, 2005


Before wifi there was hifi. High fidelity referred to sound reproduction equipment that reproduced sound as near to the original sound as possible. It was accurate and faithful reproduction of the original, containing absence of distortion or enhancements.

Keeping within the fundamentals of HiFi, Wireless fidelity (WiFi) is a term for wireless local area networks (WLAN) that use specifications conforming to IEEE 802.11b. WiFi has gained acceptance in many environments as an alternative to a wired LAN. Public locations such as Starbucks, Borders, FedEx Kinko's Office and Print Centers, airports, hotels, and other services offer public access to WiFi networks so people can log onto the Internet. These locations are known as hotspots.

Wireless networks will be mainstream within the next 5 years. The writing is on the wall with all the upcoming wireless events in 2006.


It's primetime for anyone involved in the cabling infrastructure sector of technology to shift skill gears by learning about wireless networking implementations. A great way to start learning is by setting up your own wireless network at home. Wireless network security is and will continue to be in [profitable] demand, as an excellent specialty skill.

There are many reasons why municipalities are interested in installing metropolitan Wi-Fi networks. Three most common applications are:
- Public Safety (emergency responders, surveillance)
- Municipal Interest (more efficient city workers, bridging the digital divide, promoting development)
- Commercial Services (providing affordable residential or business broadband connectivity)

To see a glimpse of what the future will hold for wireless technology, the Pepper Pad is a 2.3-pound, Wi-Fi-enabled device, with a large, high-resolution screen, 20-gigabyte hard disk, built-in speakers and a thumb keypad, providing a powerful, versatile platform for a much wider range of online and off-line activities than any other portable device. Its 8.4-inch display is ideal for viewing full-width Web pages and watching full-screen videos. The Pepper Pad can store hours of music and videos, plus thousands of photos. And, with three forms of wireless communication – Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and infrared (IR) – the Pad can access and control a wide range of devices around the home, from Wi-Fi access points, to keyboards and mice, to TVs, set-top boxes, music systems, home theaters and media servers. It's an ideal way for consumers to have Internet and media access plus wireless remote control in every room of their home.
