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: Who can help me with a global certification strategy?
There is no single certification program which gives manufacturers the possibility to certify a product globally.
