In certain markets your devices must meet the standards set by the Global Certification Forum (GCF) to gain market access. TESTiLABS can provide Over-The-Air (OTA) radio performance testing and field testing covering various radio technologies to achieve the GCF certification.
The certification assures that the tested device is compliant with GCF requirements and will operate correctly in various mobile networks.
These tests can be done to mobile phones and wireless devices from handsets, tablets etc. to laptops, dongle and different kind of electronic products with antenna.
GCF Certification Process
1. Feasibility Study for GCF Compliance (mandatory)
This is the first step in the process of achieving the GCF certification for your device. Feasibility study has to be done in order to understand if your device is GCF compliant. We are capable of carrying out the feasibility study for your product and see what must be done in order to gain GCF certification.
2. GCF Test Service (mandatory)
If your device is GCF suitable, the next step is to test your device according to GCF test requirements. GCF Test Service includes all the test cases required for GCF certification.
3. GCF Test Management Service (recommended)
