The following are some of the product compatibility standards for wireless local area networks (WLAN) based on the IEEE 802.11 specifications.
- WMM (Wi-Fi Multimedia)
Wi-Fi Multimedia (formerly known as Wireless Multimedia Extensions) refers to QoS (Quality of Service) over Wi-Fi.
- WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy)
WEP provides data confidentiality services by encrypting the data sent between wireless nodes.
Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) is an implementation that provides enhanced security for wireless networks and is based on a subset of the IEEE 802.11i standard
WPA2 provides a stronger encryption mechanism through Advanced Encryption Standard (AES)..
