The Wi-Fi Alliance Authorized Test Laboratories has begun interoperability testing of high-performance Wi-Fi gear, spurring the anticipated arrival of Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 802.11n draft 2.0 products to store shelves this quarter.

Wi-Fi CERTIFIED draft 2.0 products have been tested for interoperability across vendors, adherence to Wi-Fi Protected Access security protocols, and backward compatibility with more than 3,500 Wi-Fi a/b/g products. Products based on the new IEEE 802.11n draft deliver up to five times the throughput and up to twice the range of those based on previous standards, enabling a wide range of content-rich applications, and delivering these applications over a larger footprint. The certification program also includes Wi-Fi Multimedia QoS, which helps deliver the best user experience with applications such as video, voice and gaming.

"Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 802.11n draft 2.0 Wi-Fi brings the digital home of the future to life today, and revolutionizes the capabilities of enterprise networking. It is the most important advance for Wi-Fi technology since its invention," said Wi-Fi Alliance managing director Frank Hanzlik. "With the launch of this certification program, the industry as a whole has come together to deliver the very best user experience?helping ensure that consumers and enterprises can purchase with confidence and make the most of advanced Wi-Fi technology today."

The alliance expects high demand for certification testing with a strong pipeline of products already scheduled for this service. Several laboratories in Spain, Taiwan, United States and Japan this week will begin testing for the 802.11n draft 2.0 program to ensure that testing services are available to member companies in every region.
