RFID Journal Glossary
- The generic wireless interface of mobile computing devices, such as laptops used in local area networks (LANs). The term "Wi-Fi" (a play on the term "Hi-Fi") is thought to be an abbreviation for "wireless fidelity." Common uses include Internet and voice-over-IP phone access, gaming and network connectivity for such consumer electronics as televisions, DVD players and digital cameras. In spite of media reports about possible health risks from Wi-Fi, scientific studies have failed to show a causal effect.
