Wifi Alliance Agreement

“There is no doubt that this agreement will allow 60 GHz technology to create an important part of the high-performance future for wireless networks,” said Phil Solis, Director of Wireless Connectivity Management at ABI Research. “Through cooperation, the groups have laid the groundwork for interoperability and top-down compatibility, which will accelerate the introduction and usefulness of wireless multi-gigabit networks.” There are a number of Wi-Fi Alliance certification programs:[13] AUSTIN, Texas and TOKYO, May 10 /PRNewswire/ — The Wi-Fi Alliance and the Gigabit Wireless Alliance (WiGig Alliance) today announced a cooperation agreement for multi-gigabit wireless networks. Wi-Fi Alliance and WiGig Alliance will share technology specifications for the development of a next-generation Wi-Fi Alliance certification program that will support Wi-Fi® operation in the 60 GHz frequency band. The agreement also encourages the development of products that support 60 GHz technology to expand existing Wi-Fi features. The Agile Multiband Wi-Fi certification shows that devices can automatically connect and maintain the connection in the most appropriate way. It covers the IEEE 802.11k standard on the Access Point information report, IEEE 802.11v for the exchange of network status information, IeEE 802.11u on additional information from a Wi-Fi network, IEEE 802.11r on fast roaming between different access points and other technologies specified by the Wi-Fi Alliance. The liaison agreement allows technology sharing for program development As major sponsors, the alliance lists Apple, Comcast, Samsung, Sony, LG, Intel, Dell, Broadcom, Cisco, Qualcomm, Motorola, Microsoft, Texas Instruments and T-Mobile. The charter for this independent organization was to conduct tests, certify the interoperability of products and promote technology. [4] Wi-Fi Home Design is a series of guidelines published by the Wi-Fi Alliance for the integration of wireless networks into home design. [37] The Wi-Fi Alliance owns the Wi-Fi brand.

Manufacturers can use the brand for brand-certified products that have been tested for interoperability. For more information, see www.wi-fi.org and www.wigig.org. WECA renamed itself In 2002 Wi-Fi Alliance. It is headquartered in Austin, Texas. In October 2010, the alliance began with Wi-Fi Direct certification, which allows wi-fi devices to communicate directly with each other by setting up ad hoc networks without going through a wireless access point or wireless access point. [16] [17] Since 2009, when it was first announced, some have suggested that Wi-Fi Direct may replace the need for Bluetooth for applications that do not depend on Bluetooth Low Energy. [18] [19] TDLS, or tunneled direct link installation, is “a seamless way to spread media and other data more quickly between devices already connected to the Wi-Fi network,” based on IEEE 802.11z and the Alliance Wi-Fi certification program in 2012.
