IoT business is booming and that has resulted in a steady growth of wireless module integrations for cellular and other wireless technologies. This direction leads to an exciting potential for manufacturers to grow their markets. By certifying a product for US (FCC), EU (CE-Mark, RED) and Japan (MIC), manufacturers are able to leverage much of the testing and reports for many other countries around the world and thereby increasing their market access and revenue potential? Increased market access opens the door for higher volume of units sold!
