Bureau Veritas’ 7layers provides full NB-IoT and LTE Cat-M Certification Services for GCF and PTCRB

21/02/18

5 February, 2018 - 7layers, a Bureau Veritas Group company, is pleased to announce that it offers full Narrow Band Internet of Thing (NB-IoT) and LTE Category M certification services for GCF and PTCRB.

NB-IoT is a narrow band radio technology standard that  focuses specifically on indoor coverage, low cost, long battery life, and enabling a large number of connected device using cellular telecommunications bands.

Both cellular certification groups, GCF and PTCRB, had already implemented suitable requirements for the validation of NB-IoT and LTE Cat-M devices, modules and platforms. The corresponding validation methods are based on conformance testing, performance testing as well as field testing.

Especially for field testing, the GSM Association created a new test specification (TS.40) that was released recently. Conformance testing is based on the given 3GPP LTE standards. In terms of performance evaluation, CTIA took the lead and they implemented appropriate requirements into their RF antenna performance test specification.

Bureau Veritas’ 7layers is an active member of GCF, PTCRB, ETSI, 3GPP, CTIA and GSMA.  It has been fully authorized for all most recent certification services.

“We are leading many IoT activities within various groups and we offer all defined certification services. For example, 7layers has been deeply engaged in the development of the new TS.40 test specification sourced by the GSM Association. 7layers was the only certification service provider being involved.  We got very deep knowledge that we share with our client since we have a direct access to the first available cellular IoT networks.” explained by Thomas Jaeger responsible for Business Development and Innovations at 7layers.
