Wipro Technologies has been selected by the Wi-Fi Alliance to become an authorised pre-certification test lab. This lab will allow Wipro to pre-test products for Wi-Fi Alliance members, who are planning to pursue Wi-Fi certification, and marks the Wi-Fi Alliance's first presence in the India market.

Wipro has established a dedicated test lab within its Bangalore test facilities of its Testing Services Division. The lab will service Wi-Fi Alliance members with state-of-the-art equipment and trained engineers. Wi-Fi Alliance member companies from around the world will be able to submit products for testing to Wipro lab.

"We are very excited to partner with Wipro on this important project," said Wi-Fi Alliance Managing Director Frank Hanzlik. "Many of our members rely on pre-certification testing as an important step in the quality assurance process, and Wipro's expertise and facility will be an excellent addition to our worldwide lab presence."

The Wi-Fi Alliance certifies devices for interoperability based on the IEEE 802.11 family of standards. A device that has passed testing and complies with Wi-Fi Alliance requirements can be designated as Wi-Fi CERTIFIED. Only Wi-Fi Alliance member companies are eligible to participate in certification programmes.

Pre-certification testing allows member companies to pre-test Wi-Fi devices and troubleshoot problems before entering the formal process to become Wi-Fi CERTIFIED. The Wipro lab will replicate Wi-Fi Alliance test beds and test plans to allow for engineering feedback and more customised analysis than is permitted during formal Wi-Fi certification testing.
