Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™ is an internationally-recognized seal of approval for products indicating that they have met industry-agreed standards for interoperability, security, and a range of application specific protocols.
Wi-Fi CERTIFIED products have undergone rigorous testing by one of our independent Authorized Test Laboratories. When a product successfully passes testing, the manufacturer or vendor is granted the right to use the Wi-Fi CERTIFIED logo. Certification means that a product has been tested in numerous configurations with a diverse sampling of other devices to validate interoperability with other Wi-Fi CERTIFIED equipment operating in the same frequency band.
Certification is available for a wide range of consumer, enterprise, and operator-specific products, including smartphones, appliances, computers and peripherals, networking infrastructure, and consumer electronics. At retail, the Wi-Fi CERTIFIED logo gives consumers confidence that a product will deliver a good user experience. Service providers and enterprise IT managers specify Wi-Fi CERTIFIED to reduce support costs and ensure a product has met industry-agreed requirements.
A company must be a member of Wi-Fi Alliance® to have its products tested for certification and use the Wi-Fi CERTIFIED logo and associated trademarks.
