    Wireless Certification and Testing

    From Bluetooth® to Wireless USB to ZigBee to RFID and all the various 802.11 standards, including UltrawideBand (802.15) and WiMax (802.16) products, NTS has seen it all. We operate an FCC-certified Telecommunications Certification Body to expedite your formal grant of approval and get your product to market on schedule.

    In addition, the Silicon Valley laboratory currently provides Dynamic Frequency Selection (DFS) testing services to manufacturers of 802.11(a/n) devices and other wireless technologies that operate in the 5GHz range. Wireless services include radio requirements, DFS testing and certifications for North America via our in-house TCB. And for the European Union, NTS can issue Notified Body Opinions specific to the R&TTE Directive and the Radio Equipment Directive, RED. Key wireless testing and certification services at the Silicon Valley lab encompass the following:

    • RF Regulatory Testing
    • Dynamic Frequency Selection (DFS) Testing
    • FCC Telecommunications Certification Body
    • Wi-Fi, RFID, Bluetooth, ZigBee, Etc.
    • Domestic and International Wireless Approvals
    • Over-the-Air Antenna Testing

    The over-the-air antenna testing is executed in a state-of-the-art OTA chamber. As many IoT and M2M devices become increasingly more compact, antennas are sometimes forced to be placed near other antennas, displays, computer processors, or high-speed memory—all of which can interfere and degrade a device’s OTA performance. In addition to power measurements, OTA testing can perform sensitivity measurements to illustrate how internal components are affecting RF radio performance. This allows product developers to see where the issues are during normal operation and how they are impacting the product’s performance.
