Happy Birthday to the foundation of Wi-Fi (and other smart grid-related standards)
Date: 29 September 2015
IEEE is celebrating the 25th anniversary of the WiFi standard, IEEE 802.11. In this article, SmartGridNews.com interviewed Tim Godfrey, chair of the IEEE 802.24 Technical Advisory Group, who began working with the IEEE 802.11 standard in 1994. Godfrey offers his insights on the importance of standards and how the WiFi standard affects smart grid technology. "...several systems are marketed for smart grid and smart city types of networks that can build a mesh based on IEEE 802.11," said Godfrey.
