About outdoor Wi-Fi

Wi-Fi networks emerged as one of the most popular wireless network protocol of 21st century. It is widely used both in indoor as well as outdoor environment to power public hotspot networks, home networks, and business local area networks. Indoor environment includes mainly households, whereas outdoor environment includes schools, colleges, stadiums, transportation hub, parking lots, and resorts. Wi-Fi can be configured in two modes: infrastructure mode and ad-hoc mode.
