FIPS 140-2 Level 1 Validation: Tested Security

The TI Wl1837MOD WiLink™ 8 module not only claims security but is tested for security with FIPS 140-2 Level 1 Validation.

Tested by a 3rd party lab and submitted to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), using WL1837MOD allows for end products to claim "FIPS Inside" and portray the highest level of security. 

Whether you're working on a government police radio or medical equipment for federal hospitals, WL1837MOD will save you time and money.

802.11s Wi-Fi Mesh

The TI WiLink™ 8 module supports 802.11s Wi-Fi Mesh through an open source package publicly available. Enjoy features such as optimized path selection algorithms and self-healing networking, all free with the WiLink Mesh Software Upgrade.

Use WiLink Wi-Fi mesh in an audio solution, allowing for simultaneous audio streaming to multiple speakers, or use in a building connecting multiple devices to each other and the main access point.
