The alliance`s main sponsors are Apple, Comcast, Samsung, Sony, LG, Intel, Dell, Broadcom, Cisco, Qualcomm, Motorola, Microsoft, Texas Instruments and T-Mobile. The charter for this independent organization was to conduct tests, certify the interoperability of products and promote technology.  The Agile Multiband Wi-Fi certification indicates that devices can automatically connect and maintain the connection in the most appropriate way. It covers the IEEE 802.11k standard on the Access Point information report, IEEE 802.11v for the exchange of network status information, IeEE 802.11u on additional information from a Wi-Fi network, IEEE 802.11r on fast roaming between different access points and other technologies specified by the Wi-Fi Alliance. Wi-Fi Home Design is a series of guidelines published by the Wi-Fi Alliance for the integration of wireless networks into home design.  AUSTIN, Texas and Tokyo, May 10 /PRNewswire/ — The Wi-Fi Alliance and the WiGig Alliance today announced a cooperation agreement for multi-gigabit wireless networks. Wi-Fi Alliance and WiGig Alliance will share technology specifications for the development of a next-generation Wi-Fi Alliance certification program that will support Wi-Fi® operation in the 60 GHz frequency band. The agreement also encourages the development of products that support 60 GHz technology to expand existing Wi-Fi features. There are a number of Wi-Fi Alliance certification programs: The liaison agreement will allow technology exchange for program development “There is no doubt that this agreement will allow 60 GHz technology to be an important part of the high performance future for wireless networks,” said Phil Solis, practical director of wireless connectivity at ABI Research. “Through cooperation, the groups have laid the groundwork for interoperability and top-down compatibility, which will accelerate the introduction and usefulness of wireless multi-gigabit networks.” Vantage Wi-Fi, formerly known as the Wi-Fi Carrier, is a certification program for operators to maintain and manage high-quality Wi-Fi connections in a high-use environment.  It contains a number of certifications, such as z.B. Certified Wi-Fi (as in 802.11ac), Passpoint, Agile Multiband and optimized connectivity.  The Wi-Fi alliance`s definition for interoperability requires products in typical network configurations to perform well and support established and emerging applications.
The Alliance wi-fi certification process includes three types of testing to ensure interoperability. Wi-Fi-certified products are tested for: WiGig refers to 60 GHz of local wireless network connection. Originally announced in 2013 by Wireless Gigabit Alliance, it was adopted by the Wi-Fi Alliance in 2013. They began certification in 2016. The current version of WiGig is IEEE 802.11ad, with a newer version IEEE 802.11ay coming in 2019.   The WiGig Alliance, which shares many member companies with Wi-Fi Alliance, was created to unify the next generation of multi-gigabit wireless products by encouraging the deployment and widespread use of 60 GHz wireless technology worldwide. Miracast is a standard for wireless device connections (such as laptops, tablets or smartphones) to screens (such as TVs, monitors or projectors) introduced by the Wi-Fi Alliance in 2012. Its goal is to replace the cables connected by the device to the screen.  | The WiGig specification defines protocols to provide data transfer speeds measured in gigabits, not megabits, and supports a new range of applications and uses.
