Wireless: Test labs in U.S, Japan approved by Wi-Fi Alliance
TÜVRheinland will soon be conducting tests of Wi-Fi wireless devices under the new IEEE 802.11n standard.
Newtown, CT— TÜVRheinland will soon be conducting tests of Wi-Fi wireless devices under the new IEEE 802.11n standard. Currently, the Wi-Fi Alliance is finalizing the 802.11n, draft 2.0 certification test plan, scheduled to launch June 25. Compliance to the plan ensures a product’s interoperability with other Wi-Fi devices in consumer, commercial and industrial markets.
“We expect a rapid market acceptance of wireless products running 802.11n because of their ability to stream video between devices,” says David Surber, vice president of engineering for TÜVRheinland. “We areproud to be one of the first labs authorized by the Wi-Fi Alliance to perform 802.11n testing, enabling our clients worldwide to meet that market demand.” TÜVRheinland is a world leader in independent testing and certification services, and one of only four companies in the world with testing laboratories authorized by the Wi-Fi Alliance for this program. The company’s facilities in the U.S. and Yokohama, Japan are pre-qualified to perform testing for the more than 300 members of the Wi-Fi Alliance , a global industry association promoting the growth of Wi-Fi devices.
TÜVRheinland says their facilities can test all types of wireless devices including laptops, wireless routers and switches, PDAs, VoIP telephones, printers, computers, game stations and computer accessories.
