Wi-Fi 6 certification program sets minimum standard


The Wi-Fi Alliance is to launch a certification programme for devices that support the new Wi-Fi 6 standard.

Earlier this year, the Wi-Fi Alliance decided to adopt a more consumer-friendly nomenclature, ditching technical standards like ‘Wi-Fi 802.11ac’ for a more generational approach. This means that the next major iteration of the technology – Wi-Fi 802.11ax – will be known as ‘Wi-Fi’ 6.
