Spark certification and testing process

1、 Introduction to Spark

  Spark was established in 1987 as one of New Zealand‘s largest telecommunications operators, providing a wide range of communication services and solutions, including mobile communication, broadband internet, and fixed telephone services.

2、 Spark‘s certification requirements and frequency bands

  At present, Spark operates three types of wireless networks: 5G NR, 4G LTE, and 3G WCDMA. 3G WCDMA will gradually shut down in the near future.
  All IoT devices that need to be connected to the Spark network need to pass Spark certification, so such IoT modules or devices can be compatible with the Spark network. All modules and devices certified by Spark IOT/M2M must support software air port upgrades.

3、 Certification process

(1) Communicate with Deeplight for business and send the product prototype to the laboratory for testing.

(2) Lab will conduct compliance testing on the prototype according to PTC specifications.

(3) You need to provide electrical safety test reports for the product, generally including safety regulations and EMC testing, as well as specific reports covering any wireless transmitter (such as Bluetooth, WiFi, DECT, etc.). The manufacturer can provide copies of the relevant test reports.

(4) When the lab completes product testing according to relevant PTC specifications, Deeplight assists the manufacturer in submitting the application, which will be in the processing queue.

(5) The test report is evaluated by a dedicated team to determine whether the product meets the specified standards and other requirements. The average processing time is three weeks, calculated from the date of receiving the complete application. Incomplete applications will be placed on hold until all necessary data is provided.

(6) When the product meets all requirements, it will receive Spark certification.

4、 Spark testing fees

The testing fee for Spark is divided into two parts, which are coordinated by Deeplight. Generally, there are two parts, namely the lab testing fee and Spark application fee.

5、 Certified Label

Issue a separate Telepermit number and label for each product and for each party holding a license for the same product. The product name is clearly displayed on the label.
The remote license number at the bottom of the label consists of three parts:

(1) The first part is a three digit number used to identify the product category. For example, 202 is used for telephones.

(2) The second part is the last two digits of the year in which the telecommunications license was obtained.

(3) The third part is a sequence number that represents the sequence number of products in that category in the year of obtaining the telecommunications license.
