Mobile connectivity is being added to a wide variety of consumer, enterprise and industrial products, a trend that is accelerating as more and more everyday objects are connected to the Internet of Things.
GCF offers a streamlined certification process for connected products that are based on a GCF-certified embedded wireless module.
The number and scope of tests required to certify a product is significantly reduced if the certification of its embedded wireless module can be referenced. Certification testing for the product is focused on functionality that is not part of the module such as antenna, SIM functionality and user-interface.
This principle is being extended with certified Platforms which enable manufacturers to design innovative new wireless products around a wider variety of previously certified functionality.
