The LoRaWAN specification is defined as a low power, wide area (LPWA) network protocol that enables battery-powered devices in regional, national or global networks to be wirelessly connected to the Internet and meets the key requirements of the Internet of Things (IoT), such as bi-directional communications, end-to-end security, mobility and localization services.
LoRaWAN is guided by the LoRa Alliance, which is committed to “promote and drive the success of the LoRaWAN protocol as the leading open global standard for secure, carrier-grade IoT-LPWAN connectivity”.
The LoRaWAN Certified Program provides manufacturers’ end customers with the assurance that their application-specific end devices will work in any LoRaWAN™ network. The scope of the certification program confirms that the end device meets the functional requirements of the LoRaWAN specification as defined by the LoRa Alliance:
The LoRaWAN certification is specific to LoRa. In addition, there are country-specific testing and market approval requirements that LoRa devices must meet.
Depending on the country, the processes required to obtain market approval can vary from “self-declaration” to “classic type approval”.
We offer our customers all regulatory testing and certification services in connection with the approval of LoRa devices. In addition, we can also carry out LoRaWAN certification through our partner network, so that we can offer you the approval of your LoRa equipment from a single source.
