  • Safe is a device smartly tested throughout its life cycle

    The increased integration of wireless technologies is enabling connectivity services in all kinds of devices and applications, such as connected cars, smartphones, wearables, smart cities, smart grids, smart homes and eHealth. At DEKRA, we work to make sure these devices comply with the expected levels of interoperability, security, safety and reliability. This often goes beyond standards promoted by authorities, industry consortia and network operators.

    We have the most complete wireless certification and testing network of labs in the world. With the largest coverage in different technologies (GSM/GPRS/EDGE, WCDMA, HSPA, LTE, WiMAX™, Bluetooth®, Wi-Fi®, RFID and NFC) we offer a real one-stop-shop approach for the certification of telecommunications devices.

  • Smooth sailing

    Products today incorporate a variety of wireless and network technologies. For a seamless and reliable experience, it's important that they are tested and certified by an independent and experienced third party. Find below some of the topics and technologies that DEKA can help you with to ensure smooth sailing in international markets. In addition, get to know the wireless consortiums that DEKRA has been recognized by.

  • Connectivity

    We test and certify the standards and protocols that enable the connectivity of your products so they can work and talk to each other seamlessly.

    • Wi-Fi® is a wireless technology that is present everywhere and it is one of the fastest-growing global wireless technologies in the world (802.11a / 802.11b, 802.11g / 802.11n, 802.11ac)
    • Bluetooth is everywhere and has become a global and popular technology that we use every day and in many different applications. Currently, we are covering the services for the versions: 2.0 / 2.0+EDR, 2.1 / 2.1+EDR, 3.0 / 3.0+HS, 4.0 (BR+EDR+BLE), 4.1, 4.2, 5.1
    • MirrorLink® is a technology standard that allows a consumer to access their phone using the same controls they use for accessing the car radio, climate control, and navigation system
    • NFC (near-field-communication) is a short-range wireless connectivity technology that provides intuitive simple and safe communication between electronic devices. The NFC Forum logo gives consumers confidence that a product will deliver a good user experience and meets industry standards
    OCF certification improves IoT interoperability, reduces time-to-market and enhances the customer experience with OCF specific testing and certification, UPnP certification, and AllJoyn testing and certification
