Wi-Fi Alliance changes to device categories for Enterprise certification

In this July, Wi-Fi Alliance’s Board of Directors approved changes to Enterprise certification. These changes are due to market demands on a changing certification landscape. The changes will take effect January 1, 2012. The changes affect the WPA2 and CERTIFIED n (802.11n) certification programs.

APUT Certification
The categories 1, 2, and 3 will be eliminated. All APUTs seeking Enterprise certification will be treated as category 3 APUTs are treated now; these APUTs must work with WFA’s Test Bed Authentication Servers as listed in the WPA2 and 802.11n test plans. As with Category 3 APUT must work with all the EAP types covered in the test plans.
