The new CETECOM Whitepaper „Radio Equipment Directive - The new radio equipment directive in detail” provides insights, which products are affected by the directive and which potential ways lead to conformity.
Before the market launch of products with integrated radio technologies, manufacturers need the required certification of the devices. Without this certification and the preceding tests, the manufacturer has no possibility to sell the products to their target markets.
The Wi-Fi technology has come a long way in the last two decades. Far away from the original 11 Mbps data rate offered, current top-notch Wi-Fi devices are able to process as much as 1 Gbps of data rate when communicating with other current-generation devices but are also able to connect to legacy devices. This helps to make Wi-Fi one of the most common technologies in our time.
CETECOM, the premier wireless test and certification lab, is recognized for its expertise in globally provided SmartCard service offerings. Visa has now accredited CETECOM’s US laboratory in Milpitas, California to perform Visa Paywave Contactless Type Approval Testing.
CETECOM, the premiere wireless test and certification lab and provider of its Testing, Organization and Management Database (TOM), recently released the new Carrier Aggregation Validator to help engineers, to verify if certain carrier aggregation test scenarios are valid.
PTCRB certification – GSM/WCDMA/LTE based wireless carriers in North America will not accept a device onto their network if it is not PTCRB certified. Therefore, the PTCRB certification is an essential milestone for manufacturers who would like to market their products in the US and Canada. This not only affects the traditional mobile communication device manufacturers marketing mobile phones, but also cellular module integrators who are serving the IoT/M2M market.
CETECOM continuously expands its capabilities, and thus supports the health care industry through comprehensive test services, ensuring compliance with increasing requirements of health standards. CETECOM is accredited by the German Accreditation Body (DAKKS) according to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025 and recognized by the ZLG (Central Authority of the Federal German States for Health Protection) regarding medical products in accordance with the directives 93/42/EEC, 90/385/EEC, 98/79/EC and 93/42/EWG.
CETECOM, the premier wireless test and certification lab, is already known for its excellent SmartCard service portfolio. This wide range of services has now been extended as Visa accredited CETECOM to perform acceptance device testing for contactless devices and readers.
Safety standards for devices and equipment consist of detailed requirements to reduce the risks of danger to the life and health of persons and things to a minimum. 2016 brings several changes for approval regarding electrical safety.
CETECOM certifies to international and local standards for a wide range of industries and wireless technologies. We perform the necessary tests and manage the entire certification process from start to finish, helping you get your product into its target markets quickly. The number of wireless devices we use on a daily basis is growing exponentially. Automotive components, wearables, medical devices, consumer electronics – all might use wireless technologies like Bluetooth and Wi-Fi to process information. Manufacturers implemented wireless technologies into their products are now facing an increased need for certification / homologation before they are able to launch their products. In this process, the biggest challenge for manufacturers still exists.
CETECOM, the premiere wireless test and certification lab and host of the Open Lab Alliance, will host the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) DSRC Technical Committee Meeting in its location in Milpitas, Silicon Valley.
For the classic wireless communication services, a so called frequency window exists in which communication technologies can operate. In particular frequencies between 600 MHz and 3 GHz are of special value due to its capability to penetrate buildings to a certain amount. At higher frequencies often line of sight is required because of the impact of humidity in the air and at lower frequencies other sources of radiation (e.g. our sun) and the need for a too large antenna size (wavelength related, for resonances in the range of meters) becomes less convenient. This makes the frequency range a natural kind of resource The multiple usage of wireless communication technologies has raised the question on how various technologies are able to coexist in once device while limiting the interference.
