Deeplight obtained PTCRB certification for North American network access of NB-IOT+Cat M dual-mode IoT products for Singapore customers

      PTCRB as a quasi-mandatory certification for the North American market for products using wireless cellular technology (2G, 3G, 4G, LTE, FDD, TDD, NB-IOT, Cat M, 5G SA NSA), has been accepted by the industry for many years. PTCRB   is necessary to obtain the certificate and list it on the official website of PTCRB, so that relevant stakeholders can inquire before finally completing the project.

       In the close communication with the customer in the early stage of Deeplight, we assisted the customer to confirm the details of the frequency band, communication system, technical specification, and operator network used in the North American market, and helped the customer finalize the technical specification.

       After more than a month, Deeplight  submitted the test requirements PICS form to the PTCRB organization, generated test Cases, selected certification types, established test requirements, followed up the test progress, etc. After passing strict tests such as OTARFprotocolSIM, it successfully helped The customer obtained the PTCRB certification and obtained the network access of wireless products in the North American market.
  As a typical IoT product, most of them are NB-IOT or Cat M single-mode products. This time, it is more meaningful for dual-mode NB-IOT+Cat M products to obtain PTCRB certification, because NB-IOT and Cat M are applying for PTCRB Certification requirements vary from certification to certification.

       When applying for PTCRB certification for IoT products, is the product defined as an IoT product? PTCRB requires the submission of 3 questions, if yes, the subsequent PTCRB certificate will mark the IOT product.

(1)In its intended application,does the IoT DUT transmit more than 100 kbytes in a transaction?

(2)On average, is the IoT DUTexpected to send more than 24 transactions per day?

(3)Is the IoT DUT and its antennaintended for installation in a fixed orientation relative to the horizon?
