Wi-Fi Alliance starts indoor location certification

Wednesday 22 February 2017 | 15:53 CET | News
The Wi-Fi Alliance announced a new certification for equipment supporting indoor location services. The Wi-Fi Location certification is based on the Fine Timing Measurement (FTM) protocol from IEEE 802.11-2016. This delivers meter-level accuracy for indoor device location data, without the need to deploy a separate or proprietary network infrastructure. Wi-Fi Location supports services such as indoor navigation, asset tracking, network management and emergency services.
