IoT Device Certification Landscape

Are you developing a cellular IoT device? As you get closer to deploying your device to the market, you’ll need to know what’s required to get your device cellular certified. GSMA provides a useful report on the process and requirements needed to get your cellular IoT device certified.

Cellular IoT devices must be certified to ensure that the device does not adversely affect the network or other wireless devices in the vicinity. The other reason is to ensure interoperability, so that the device works as intended when connected to a network. With an IoT project, if such issues arise that means more time and money is spent on the functionality of the cellular connectivity component, rather than the overall IoT application.

This document is intended for IoT device manufacturers and product owners who need to understand the telecommunications certification landscape in regions where they will deploy their devices. To read more about this document use the link provided below.
