What is WIFI certification
Wi-Fi CERTIFIED is an internationally recognized product certification standard, which means that the product has reached industry-recognized standards in terms of interoperability, security, and a series of application-specific protocols. Wi-Fi CERTIFIED products have been rigorously tested in one of our independent authorized test laboratories. When a product passes the test, the manufacturer or distributor is authorized to use the Wi-Fi CERTIFIED logo. Certification means that a product has been tested in various configurations with other equipment, and the equipment used for testing needs to be extracted in different ways to verify that the product is compatible with other Wi-Fi CERTIFIED equipment operating in the same frequency band Interoperability.
A wide range of consumer-, enterprise-, and carrier-specific products, including smartphones, appliances, computers and peripherals, network infrastructure, and consumer electronics, can be certified. At the retail end, the Wi-Fi CERTIFIED logo gives consumers confidence in the product, ensuring that the product can provide a good user experience and meet industry standards. Service providers and corporate IT managers specify that products must have Wi-Fi CERTIFIED to reduce support costs and ensure that products meet industry-recognized requirements. Only members of the Wi-Fi Alliance can conduct product certification testing and use the Wi-Fi CERTIFIED logo and related trademarks.
