Wi-Fi Alliance® offers tools designed for both QuickTrack and FlexTrack certification paths. These tools not only help members certify their products, but they can also be integrated in member product development and quality assurance processes.
QuickTrack Test Tool
The QuickTrack Test Tool includes QuickTrack conformance testing software provided by Wi-Fi Alliance that is then run on a QuickTrack hardware platform, such as a laptop. The QuickTrack Test Tool is tailored to test and certify products based on Qualified Solutions that have already completed full Wi-Fi® functionality testing—modules, chipsets, and other solutions developed by Solution Providers, which have undergone the prerequisite interoperabilty and conformance testing. Testing may be completed at an Authorized Test Laboratory (ATL) or member testing site. This tool is proprietary in nature and only for Wi-Fi Alliance member use.
The QuickTrack Test Tool provides a cost-effective testing platform for both achieving Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™ status and performing quality checks on a regular basis as device designs are updated. Members may choose to implement the QuickTrack Test Tool into their quality assurance process.
Wi-Fi Test Suite
Wi-Fi Test Suite is a software platform developed by Wi-Fi Alliance to support certification program development and device certification. Wi-Fi Test Suite is used by ATLs to certify Wi-Fi Alliance members’ products primarily utilizing the FlexTrack certification path.
Open source components of Wi-Fi Test Suite are made available to the public to help advance the Wi-Fi Alliance interoperability and quality mission. Wi-Fi Test Suite embraces technological innovation by being adaptable to all types of unique, diverse, and cutting edge devices. Both Wi-Fi Alliance members and non-members can conduct their own internal testing using the industry standard API and tool set. For companies considering Wi-Fi Alliance membership, products developed and tested with Wi-Fi Test Suite will streamline the process of obtaining certification when they become members.
Non-proprietary components are provided under the ISC License and can be accessed at the Wi-Fi Test Suite open source project on GitHub. Eligible Wi-Fi Alliance members can access the full software package, including proprietary components, on the Wi-Fi Alliance members-only site.
