Bluetooth Testing

CETECOM is accredited as Bluetooth Qualification Test Facilities (BQTF) with recognized Bluetooth Qualification Experts (BQE), offering a comprehensive range of testing services according to regulatory standards and the Bluetooth® SIG Qualification Program.



Our regulatory Bluetooth testing services cover the following scopes:

  • Bluetooth Profile Specification PTS 7.1.1
  • Bluetooth Low Energy RF PHY including standards RF-PHY.TS/4.0/4.1/4.2
  • Bluetooth RF specifications 2.0/2.1+EDR/3.0/3.0+HS/4.0/4.1/4.2

Similarly, from Q4 2017 on, we will also be able to perform Bluetooth tests according to the official Bluetooth standard 5.0.


Bluetooth® SIG qualification program

A device incorporating Bluetooth® wireless technology must undergo testing according to the Bluetooth® SIG Qualification Program in order to classify as a licensed product with the Bluetooth trademark. Although a self qualification process is allowed, the support of a BQE eliminates errors in qualification and products are exempt from the Bluetooth SIG‘s manadatory audit.

As BQTF, CETECOM’s full scope of Bluetooth® Qualification services include:

  • RF/RF-PHY Conformance Testing for BT Core 2.0-4.2
  • Protocol/Profile Conformance Testing using – the BITE® Protocol/Profile TesterBB, LM, L2CAP, SDP, RFCOMM – GAP, SPP
  • Profile Interoperability Testing using the Bluetoothi® SIG’s PTS (Profile Tuning Suite) Test System – CETECOM’s Bluetooth® product library for Extended Interoperability Testing

Please find further information about the Bluetooth SIG certification here.



Even if products are conformant to the Bluetooth specification it does not guarantee a seamless interoperability with other device implementations. To address these issues, CETECOM offers extended interoperability testing.

Audio quality

In addition to Bluetooth® Interoperability, CETECOM also focuses on audio quality aspects of Bluetooth® products by determining the subjective and objective audio quality of mobile handsets and wearable headset devices supporting the Bluetooth® Handsfree profile.


USA: CTIA Bluetooth® compatibility certification

As a designated CATL (CTIA Authorized Test Lab), CETECOM is capable of providing qualification services according to the CTIA Bluetooth Compatibility Certification. This program was created by the CTIA and Bluetooth SIG to improve the user experience between Bluetooth mobile phones and headsets. It is a requirement that must be satisfied by manufacturers intending to sell such devices to major North American network operators.
