Wipro Technologies' global IT services facility in Bangalore will serve as a Wi-Fi Alliance "test laboratory" to authorize Wi-Fi CERTIFIED products for members in India and other areas in Asia. "India is increasingly becoming a hub for Wi-Fi product development and we have enjoyed success as a pre-certification lab for the Wi-Fi Alliance," Gangadharaiah C P, senior vice president and head of testing services for Wipro, said in a statement. "We look forward to providing greater support and certification services to current and future Wi-Fi Alliance members." According to a company release, the Wi-Fi market in India is expected to exceed $744 million by 2012. "The Wi-Fi market in India has enormous potential and establishing Wipro as a Wi-Fi Alliance Authorized Test Laboratory will be key to supporting that growth," Karen Hanley, senior director for the Wi-Fi Alliance, said in a statement. There are currently 12 Wi-Fi Alliance authorized test laboratories around the globe. The Wi-Fi Alliance has certified more than 3,500 products since the introduction of the Wi-Fi CERTIFIED program in March 2000.
