In the 1990s the IEEE created the concept of an international standard for wireless networking (IEEE 802.11) which eventually became known as ‘Wi-Fi’. Over the next 5 years, more than 100 million internet connected devices were sold annually, creating a massive reliance for Wi-Fi by consumers in their day-to-day lives. Today there are over 8
