Interlink Networks, a network access management software provider, has joined the Wireless Ethernet Compatibility Alliance (WECA).

Interlink Networks provides network access control and management solutions that support and increase the security of 802.11 wireless LAN implementations.

WECA's mission is to certify interoperability of Wi-Fi (IEEE 802.11b wireless) products and to promote Wi-Fi as the global wireless LAN standard across all market segments.

Interlink Networks provides a solution for enhancing the security in Wi-Fi wireless LAN applications. The Interlink Networks RAD-E Enterprise Access Server centralizes the control and monitoring of user access to wireless networks. RAD-E is a RADIUS server, an Authentication, Authorization & Accounting (AAA) technology used by service providers and enterprises to authenticate remote user access to their networks. Interlink has applied this approach to address the specific security concerns found in wireless LAN network access.

"We joined WECA because it is a good fit for us strategically, as we work to develop strong AAA products for enterprises that improve the security of networks and the data that is transmitted into the open air," states John Vollbrecht, CTO of Interlink Networks. "There's a definite need for authentication and message integrity as Wi-Fi scales to millions of enterprise users worldwide."

WECA has instituted a test suite that defines how member products are tested to certify that they are interoperable with other Wi-Fi or Wi-Fi5 certified products.
