About WLA


A professional association for the WLAN community, defining industry best practices and quality assurance in the delivery of Wi-Fi networks

A professional association for the WLAN community

The WLA aims to further confidence in the WLAN industry by focusing on individuals engaged in the WLAN industry. We bring together a community of industry professionals who share their experiences with one another. This provides our members with a competitive advantage as they become more active and better informed members of the Wireless Technology industry.

The Wireless LAN Association supports and advises its members as they improve their knowledge and technical expertise. WLA helps our members gain the skills they need through certification and training, thereby increasing customer confidence in the WLAN industry.

We provide a unified voice for our members and build strong links with other organizations. This allows the WLA to represent our members within the wireless industry, taking our member comments and concerns to other leading wireless organizations.

Defining Industry Best Practises

The main goal of the WLA is to create a framework of standards for WLAN assessment, design, implementation, and validation which will benefit the WLAN industry in full life-cycle deployments.

The publications under development fall into the main categories of Defining the goals of the project, Designing the project to meet the goals, Deploying the design, and Validating that the deployed design meets the original goals.

For those who want to get involved and help to create these Standards, please sign into your member account, and visit the Projects > WLA Publications page.

Quality Assurance

Members of the Wireless LAN Association are part of a supportive community of experts and professionals who share their knowledge and experience with one another to enhance methodological practices, and thus increase credibility with customers, by providing a set of industry-accepted WLAN standards as a practical framework for its members.

The WLA supports its members’ professional development by advising them, in a neutral environment, regarding certification tracks and training courses which meet the WLA's standards for quality and technical accuracy.

All WLA members will be expected to adhere to the membership terms and code of ethics.  This document defines the conduct of our members in relation to one another and the industry.
