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.
EMC and Radio Testing Seminar - September 13 th, 2016 in Saarbruecken CETECOM and Würth Elektronik kindly invite you to an EMC and Radio Testing Seminar in Saarbruecken. The seminar is free of charge.
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.
CETECOM is one of the first laboratories globally to earn the accreditation to perform certification testing for Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™ ac with wave 2 features.
DFS (Dynamic Frequency Selection) is a spectrum-sharing mechanism that allows wireless devices, notably those that use the 5250 – 5350 MHz and 5470 – 5725 MHz bands, to coexist with radar systems. DFS requirements have been established by the European Union, the FCC, and regulatory bodies in other markets.
CETECOM, the premiere wireless test and certification lab, participates in the “Reliable Industrial Communication Over the Air” project (RelCOvAir), which works on replacing wired connections with radios and providing reliable over the air connections for advanced manufacturing and processing systems for the near future of Industry 4.0.
On June 8 – 9, CETECOM will exhibit at the TU Automotive at booth C97 to highlight our expertise in testing and certification to help the evolving automotive technology market as telematics, mobility and autonomy converge.
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!
CETECOM will exhibit at the Internet of Things Developers Conference (IoT DevCon) to inform about testing and certification processes for diverse technologies.
Already accredited for several EMVCo type approval testing services, CETECOM earned another EMVCo certification, as CETECOM is now able to offer EMVCo Mobile Phase 2 testing to its customers.
Redpine Signals, a leader in 802.11p / DSRC / 802.11n / Bluetooth/802.15.4 integrated solutions, has joined the Open Lab Alliance (OLA).
The CETECOM Silicon Valley laboratory in Milpitas, California is now accredited by EMVCo to provide EMVCo Terminal Contactless Level 1 testing and certification services.
The wide range of CETECOM’s SmartCard service portfolio has now been extended as our laboratory in the US has been accredited to perform MasterCard Contactless reader Level 2 testing also known as MasterCard Contactless Reader.
