Wi-Fi commonly used in our community at present to connect with the internet was built accidentally. Yes, the Wi-Fi specially termed as wireless fidelity is a way of joining to a computer network using radio waves instead of wires. It was created to connect computers that are near each other and nowadays is much used for internet connections and data sharing.
An Australian scientist, John O’Sullivan was motivated by the theory of Stephen Hawking’s evaporating black holes and their subsequent radio waves. He began to find them and prove the theory to be correct. Doing these tasks, he found that these weak signals were hard to distinguish from the louder background radio noise of the entire universe.
Those signals had covered such vast distances and were so small and distorted by the gas and dust of space they had passed through. It was because of this, that O’Sullivan and his investigations equal to work on building a tool that could identify and filter specific radio waves.
Finally, he with his friends were able to create a tool based on a mathematical formula that would help them find these waves, blocking out the extraneous radio signals to identify the useful ones.
John O’Sullivan was working for the CSIRO and was tasked with finding a way for computers to communicate without wires – a wireless system of some type. Remembering his previous research into black holes and the tools he’d created to identify the black hole radio waves wirelessly, O’Sullivan went back to the tool he’d previously made.
Using the mathematical formula of this device he was able to modify and tweak it, using this as a basis for Wi-Fi to search out weak and fuzzy radio signals in the noisiest of environments. This re-purposed and unintentional invention earned the CSIRO roughly $1 billion in royalties. O’Sullivan patented it in his native country first in 1992, then later in the U.S. in 1996.
But the credits for wifi creators go to the following persons:
- John O’Sullivan
- Terence Percival
- Graham Daniels
- Diethelm Ostry
- John Deane
WiFi was invented and first released for consumers in 1997 when a committee called 802.11 was created. This lead to the creation of IEEE802.11, which refers to a set of standards that define communication for wireless local area networks (WLANs).
Also: Do You Know The World Health Organization (WHO) says that Wi-Fi is not dangerous.
