802.11 DEFINITION (continued): …  The original modulation used in802.11 was phase-shift keying (PSK). However, other schemes, such as complementary code keying (CCK), are used in some of the newer specifications. The newer modulation methods provide higher data speed and reduced vulnerability to interference.The 802.11 specifications are summarized in our IEEE 802 Wireless Standards: Fast Reference.Getting started with 802.11To explore how 802.11 is used in the enterprise, here are additional resources:802.11 protocols: Learn more about the different 802.11 wireless protocols and deployment basics in this guide.
