Wi-Fi Alliance

Overview: The Wi-Fi Alliance, originally established as the Wireless Ethernet Compatibility Alliance (WECA), is an association of wireless systems manufacturers as well as companies that provide Wi-Fi services and connectivity. It was formed in 1999 to certify interoperability of wireless Local Area Network products based on the IEEE 802.11 specification.
