A Wi-Fi router is a fundamental networking device that plays a central role in providing wireless internet connectivity to homes and businesses. This device transmits data from a wired broadband connection and distributes it wirelessly to various Wi-Fi-enabled devices, such as smartphones, laptops, tablets and smart home gadgets. Wi-Fi routers use radio waves to create a local area network (LAN), enabling multiple devices to connect and access the internet simultaneously. These routers often come with configurable settings, allowing users to set up wireless networks with custom names and passwords.
They offer various features, including multiple frequency bands, security protocols and advanced settings for optimizing network performance. Wi-Fi routers have become an essential part of modern life, enabling the wireless connectivity that drives productivity, entertainment and communication across the digital landscape. They provide the foundation for our interconnected world, ensuring that we can stay online and connected virtually anywhere in our homes or offices.
Note: Manufacturers of Wi-Fi routers are required to obtain the mandatory WPC ETA Approval to launch their products in the Indian market.
WPC ETA Approval is a mandatory certification for Wi-Fi routers in India. Wi-Fi routers are essential devices that enable wireless internet connectivity in homes, offices and public spaces. The WPC ETA certification process ensures that these routers comply with specific technical standards related to wireless communication, radio frequency emissions and electromagnetic compatibility. By obtaining WPC ETA approval, manufacturers and importers demonstrate their commitment to providing high-quality and compliant Wi-Fi routers to the Indian market, ensuring reliable and interference-free wireless internet connectivity.
Wireless Planning and Coordination (WPC) - Equipment Type Approval (ETA) is a regulatory process in India that ensures telecommunications and wireless devices comply with technical standards and legal requirements. This approval is granted by the WPC Wing, established in 1952, a part of India's Department of Telecommunications (DoT). It is essential for manufacturers and importers of wireless equipment, such as mobile phones, routers, and radio-frequency devices. It certifies that these products meet the necessary technical specifications and do not interfere with other wireless services. WPC ETA Approval plays a pivotal role in maintaining efficient and interference-free wireless communication networks, promoting technological advancement, and ensuring the safety and reliability of wireless devices in the Indian market. Manufacturers must obtain this approval to sell and operate their wireless products in India legally.
