WiFi (originally known as Wi-Fi®) is a local area, wireless technology based on the IEEE 802.11 (2012) Wireless LAN Media Access Control and Physical Layer specification. A wide range of devices use this technology to connect to a network source such as the internet. WiFi allows an electronic device to exchange data, audio and video applications or connect to the internet wirelessly using 2.4 GHz UHF waves and 5 GHz SHF waves. It is also known as Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN).
As WiFi becomes more important and the range of devices grows more diverse, a certification for the interoperability as a proof of reliability is in demand. It has been proven that consumers demonstrate a clear preference for WiFi-certified devices and that many enterprises use equipment with WiFi certification in order to reduce support costs and ensure compliance with industry-agreed requirements.
TÜV Rheinland is an accredited WiFi testing house, capable of providing testing services compliant with the WiFi Alliance (originally known as Wi-Fi Alliance®) test plans and offering pre-certification as well as official WiFi certification testing for 802.11 wireless devices.
