The Wi-Fi Alliance introduced a new logo as the certification brand for products approved in its forthcoming interoperability program.
WiGig CERTIFIED products will operate in the 60 GHz frequency band and deliver multi-gigabit speed, low latency traffic, and security-protected connectivity between nearby devices. Many WiGig CERTIFIED products are expected to be Wi-Fi CERTIFIED as well, and products implementing both WiGig and Wi-Fi® will include mechanisms to facilitate seamless handover between the two technologies.
"We are excited to expand the Wi-Fi Alliance interoperability program to include WiGig CERTIFIED products, which will deliver the same security and interoperability that consumers have come to expect with Wi-Fi," said Edgar Figueroa, Wi-Fi Alliance president and CEO. "WiGig CERTIFIED will be an excellent complement to Wi-Fi CERTIFIED, advancing our vision of seamless connectivity and extending the user experience to new applications."
