Mobile Device Certification

Confident of Connecting?
Imagine landing in a foreign country on a plane. What happens when you switch on your smartphone after reaching the parking position? The phone connects to a foreign network. What makes you confident that connecting works without any issues? How does your device work the same at home and abroad? We have the technical insight and background information. We show you how to create confidence in people in the connecting to any network worldwide – with the help of mobile device certification.

Challenges

Perfect Understanding Between Device, (e)SIM & Network

Make mobile device, (e)SIM, and network understand each other 

Mobile device manufacturers often do not know which network operator their customers will choose. They also cannot test all (e)SIMs. Therefore, worldwide standards have been introduced to counter this problem. These standards define protocols for clear communication and thus ensure harmonized technical behavior.

Why mobile device certification?

Only if the device and the (e)SIM work together flawlessly, a successful access to a network is possible. The certification of mobile devices is therefore essential for their success. We have been working closely with standardization bodies for years and always strive to have the first and best solution on the market.

GCF & PTCRB Certification for Global Market Access

Both, PTCRB and the Global Certification Forum (GCF), are industry certification bodies for telecommunications. Their product approvals open global market access for mobile devices. GCF group their lists of tests in so-called work items, for example, WI-508-NR for USIM interworking with 5G. In contrast, PTCRB uses the term requests for testing (RFT). The certification tests are executed on GCF-/PTCRB-validated test platforms (TPs).

End-to-end Testing with GSMA NFC Handset Test Book

The NFC Handset Test Book (GSMA TS.27) is a comprehensive collection of test specifications. They come from 3GPP, ETSI, Trusted Connectivity Alliance (former SIMalliance), GlobalPlatform, and GSMA. Referring to the contactless NFC interface, almost all components of mobile devices are affected. Thus, it covers fundamental interfaces. The NFC Handset Test Book is also relevant for certification at GCF /PTCRB.
