The article focuses on the relevance of the video-grade Wi-Fi for the internet protocol (IP)-based video content in the U.S. The collision avoidance technique (CSMA) of Wi-Fi has been observed for its inability to handle high-bandwidth applications like video. The limitation of the CSMA has led to the creation of better devices from multichannel video programming distributors (MVPDs) and the telecommunication industry.
