DURHAM, N.H. -- Five companies bringing 802.11 products to market have recently joined the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL) Wireless LAN Consortium to obtain debugging, interoperability and Wi-Fi pre-certification testing of their products.

New UNH-IOL Wireless Consortium members include BlueSocket, Enterasys, Exavera, Matsushita Electric Works, and NVIDIA. The companies join eight existing members and numerous test equipment vendors that have committed high-end wireless test gear for use in the laboratory. A full list of members and contributing test companies can be viewed here: http://www.iol.unh.edu/consortiums/wireless/.

The UNH-IOL Wireless LAN Consortium provides confidential third-party debugging, test reports and Wi-Fi pre-certification testing that can save companies time and cost to market. The lab’s wireless test bed consists of more than 135 access points from over 35 manufacturers, more than $200,000 in leading-edge testing equipment, and both desktop and walk-in shielded radio-frequency chambers.

Companies pay an annual membership fee for access to the lab’s testing services and resources, including engineers, test suites and the test bed, with the ability to test as many products as often as scheduling allows. The objective test reports that the laboratory generates can also help companies demonstrate commitment to high quality and interoperability with other vendors’ products.

“We’re seeing strong interest in testing from this industry, where interoperability as well as quality assurance are key,” said Jeremy Kent, manager of the UNH-IOL Wireless Consortium. “We'll continue to respond with testing services and equipment at whatever level best serves the industry.”
