Wi-Fi Alliance Certifies First 802.11g Products
The Wi-Fi Alliance, the wireless LAN industrys major testing body, announced Tuesday that the first round of products based on the IEEE 802.11g standard amendment have completed Wi-Fi certification testing.
The latest products to receive the official Wi-Fi logo are:
802.11g runs faster than but in the same radio frequency band as the popular 802.11b, so the two can interoperate.
The 802.11g testing process is the fourth Wi-Fi product certification from the Wi-Fi Alliance since the program began in March of 2000. Previous certification programs were for products based on IEEE 802.11a and 802.11b (including dual band products) and the Wi-Fi Protected Access security protocol.
