As enterprise environments plan for new and innovative uses of Wi-Fi, including voice and video, proven methods of security are even more important, said Wi-Fi Alliance Managing Director Frank Hanzlik. Products and equipment that are Wi-Fi CERTIFIED instill confidence for use in multi-vendor networks and will help accelerate the roll-out of enterprise-wide Wi-Fi networks. Companies such as Xirrus that continue to certify their Wi-Fi products show their commitment to interoperability as the industry continues to advance.
