Wi-Fi Alliance announces new certification fee structure

Wi-Fi Alliance has assessed each Authorized Test Laboratory (ATL) a program license fee per program for a certified product. Additional fees can be incurred for adding or recertifying programs. These fees range from $2400-$9200 per product. 

Under this new model, ATLs will incur a one-time Wi-Fi Alliance program license fee of $5000 per product certified on or after 1 January 2016. This will be the only Wi-Fi Alliance license fee to certify and recertify an unlimited number of programs for the lifetime of the product. With a growing portfolio of programs, this will reduce the incremental cost to members and proliferate the Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™ brand. Volume discounts will be available, with the cost per product reduced to: 

$3000 after 25 products certified at any ATL (per calendar year, per member)
· $2000 after 75 products certified at any ATL (per calendar year, per member)

Below are the summary of changes will be in effect as of 1 January 2016:

Few other changes to certification testing are as below.

1. Wi-Fi Sigma test tool is renamed to Wi-Fi Test Suite (WTS) and it must be implemented from Nov. 23th for CERTIFIEDn test. For mobile AP and STAUT, it requires supporting to this tool. It may not be able to run the testing without WTS supported on DUT.
2. Wi-Fi Alliance starts to use a new threshold of throughput to different product category in CERTIFIED n test plan version 2.8
