“Wi-Fi Alliance certification programs continue to evolve to ensure the technology portfolio meets the needs of the market,” said Edgar Figueroa, president and CEO, Wi-Fi Alliance. “Programs like
Wi-Fi EasyMesh are enabling smarter home Wi-Fi, and Wi-Fi CERTIFIED allows Wi-Fi networks accommodate a greater selection of interoperable devices across brands.”
Once established, the network self-monitors to ensure optimized performance. Leveraging mechanisms from Wi-Fi Agile Multiband™, Wi-Fi EasyMesh can guide devices to the access point providing the best service for that device.
