Why is Radio Testing and Certification Important?

Regulatory compliance testing to ensure that wireless technologies such as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and cellular comply with national and international regulations is essential to support certification, a requirement before your product can be sold to consumers, of radio products in global markets.

Conformance testing and certification of wireless technologies demonstrate that the radio meets industry standards for performance and interoperability. Most of these programs require such certification to allow the manufacturer to use the logo and trademarked terms, such as Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, on the product, in the product documentation and in advertising. This increases both manufacturer and consumer confidence. CTIA Over-the-Air (OTA) certification demonstrates that a cell phone model meets cellular carrier network performance requirements. Without CTIA OTA certification most cellular carriers will not allow the phone to connect to their network.

UL offers a comprehensive range of wireless testing services to help you achieve the certification your products need to launch in global markets.
