ACTON, Mass. -- Azimuth Systems Inc., the leading provider of Wi-Fi engineering test equipment, today announced that the Wi-Fi Alliance® has chosen Azimuth’s new ADEPT™ test equipment for inclusion in the Wi-Fi certification process for device manufacturers. The Azimuth ADEPT-WFA system is a standalone, intelligent device that will be included in future Wi-Fi Alliance certification testbeds to determine whether a product can be Wi-Fi CERTIFIED®. It is the first commercial test equipment product to be integrated into the Wi-Fi Alliance’s stringent certification process.

“We always strive to offer our members the best possible testing capability for Wi-Fi interoperability,” said Frank Hanzlik, managing director of the Wi-Fi Alliance.

The Azimuth ADEPT-WFA is an intelligent device that provides advanced capabilities for conformance testing of NAV (network allocation vector), PLCP (physical layer convergence procedure), and Security Attacker functionality. These tests are required as part of the Wi-Fi interoperability test procedure for all 802.11a/b/g products.

“The Wi-Fi Alliance’s commitment to, and promotion of, interoperability among all wireless vendors has facilitated customer confidence and unprecedented market growth,” said Jeff Abramowitz, vice president of marketing at Azimuth Systems. “Azimuth currently provides test equipment to more than 50 Wi-Fi Alliance members, and we are pleased that the Alliance is now utilizing our technology for industry-wide certification. We appreciate their endorsement and look forward to working with them to move the industry forward with standardized test solutions.”
