The WiFi Alliance is a non profit international association formed in 1999 to certify interoperability of wireless local area network products based on the IEEE 802.11 specifications. WiFi product certification began in March 2000. One of the goals of the WiFi Alliance is to ensure customers realize maximum benefit from their WiFi products in a secure and productive manner. Equipment passing these interoperability tests are allowed to carry the WiFi logo and service providers meeting a minimum service level may display the WiFi Zone logo.
