IoTAS in unique testing position for LTE Cat – M1 and NB-IoT

21 Dec 2017 - IoTAS in unique testing position for LTE Cat – M1 and NB-IoT


IoTAS are proud to announce that we are now the only independent Recognised Test Organisation (RTO) to have ISO 17025 Accreditation for GSMA TS.40/CLP.23.


Following on from the recent Global Certification Forum Steering Group meeting (GCF SG#73) some important announcements were made, directly impacting up the certification Field Trial testing of both LTE Cat-M1 and NB-IoT devices.

In accordance with the stringent quality requirements dictated by the GCF it is mandated that any GCF Recognised Test Organisation (RTO) completing the testing on behalf of a Manufacturer must have ISO 17025 Accreditation for GSMA TS.40/CLP.23.

Accordingly the accredited GCF RTO must be listed on the GCF web site (with the required accreditation statement: GSMA TS.40/CLP.23.)

IoTAS are proud to announce that we are the only Independent Recognised Test Organisation to have obtained this accreditation.

Therefore please be advised that if a GCF Manufacturer is intending to engage an RTO to complete the Field Trial Testing for both LTE Cat-M1 and NB-IoT, then the only test house accredited at this time is IoTAS.

If we can assist in anyway regarding your GCF/non-GCF LTE Cat-M1 and NB-IoT Field Trial Testing requirements then we would be delighted to hear from you.
