Interoperability Verification Testing
(IVT) offered under the program is designed to allow developers to demonstrate the interoperability of their products (application software and/or hardware) with Cisco technologies. View this diagram to understand the IVT process.
IVT varies by technology. To learn more about IVT for a particular technology, please refer to the respective Developer Center.
How do you know if a client device or tag is interoperable with a Cisco Wireless LAN (WLAN) infrastructure or optimized to support the latest wireless features in today's dual mode SmartPhones/Tablets or other Medical, Retail or Manufacturing Devices? Does the client device take full advantage of industry standards and Cisco's latest innovations that may be pre-standard? Look for the "Cisco Compatible" logo, which is earned through the Cisco Compatible Extensions (CCX) program for Wi-Fi (802.11) devices. If you are interested in taking full advantage of Cisco's latest innovation and integrating with Cisco's leading edge wireless technology, explore the CCX licensing, development & interoperability testing program.
Assurewave Partners and Developers are required to test interoperability of their client devices with Cisco's Unified Wireless Network, (CUWN) for every major release that is targeted for Assurewave Certification. A spot check for major feature set of partner devices and CUWN is acceptable for other minor releases. The qualification of release into major and minor will be determined by the Cisco AW Solutions team. Availability of software images will be announced to partners. These images might contain pre-release code under NDA intended for LAB USE only.
