Wi-Fi-certified products increase in number, type
The Wireless Ethernet Compatibility Alliance (WECA), Mountain View, CA, announced in March that 260 Wi-Fi product certifications have been awarded to 70 WECA member companies' products since March of 2000.
“The Wi-Fi logo has become an international sign of interoperability that consumers and enterprise IT managers look for when evaluating wireless LAN product alternatives,” said chairman Dennis Eaton in a WECA press release. “This is a good thing for the consumer. And the interoperability assurance will become even more important as the number of Wi-Fi-certified product types increase.”
Products awarded the Wi-Fi logo have undergone strict, rigorous and independent testing at Agilent's Interoperability Certification Labs (ICL). Testing usually takes two to four days per product to complete.
