A Wi-Fi expert witness typically has extensive experience in computer science, wireless communication, computer networks, network architecture, electrical engineering and/or telecommunication. Cahn Litigation Services is frequently called upon by law firm clients to locate expert witnesses that can support wireless communication technology matters.
Wi-Fi is short for wireless fidelity, and is also referred to as WLAN (wireless local area network). Wi-Fi is typically used to access the internet on a mobile device, but the term Wi-Fi refers to a wireless communication to a router, not directly to the internet. It also provides access to a local wireless network of connected devices, for example printers and Wi-Fi connected cameras. The 802.11 Standard is a set of protocols relating specifically to wireless communication on a Wi-Fi network. Wi‑Fi is a trademark of the Wi-Fi Alliance, a non-profit organization that certifies Wi-Fi products for conformity to certain standards.
Often, matters requiring Wi-Fi expert witness work involve intellectual property, such as patent infringement litigation.
Litigation support by a Wi-Fi expert witness could include an expert report, expert opinion, and expert testimony at a trial. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may request a testifying expert with prior expert witness experience. In addition, clients often seek a wireless systems industry expert for pre-litigation consultant work.
While many experts have wireless technology expertise, a Wi-Fi expert witness carries the additional responsibility of providing testimony before the court in a manner whereby lay people can understand the associated technology and evidence.
