The IEEE is responsible for Layer 1 and Layer 2 protocols. The WiFi Alliance is responsible for interoperability testing. The FCC, ETSI, and TELEC are responsible for radio frequency and transmission power-level regulations and standards in the U.S., Europe, and Japan.
The IEEE and FCC are responsible for the Layer 3 protocol support and frequency and power- level regulations in the United States. ETSI and TELEC are responsible for frequency and power- level regulations in Europe and Japan. The WiFi Alliance is responsible to interoperability testing.
The IEEE is responsible for Layer 1 and Layer 2 protocols. The FCC, ETSI, and TELEC are responsible for interoperability testing and compliance. The WiFi Alliance is responsible for radio frequency and transmission power-level regulations and standards on a global basis.
