IoTAS Offer GCF Field Trial Testing for NB-IoT and CAT M1 (GSMA TS.40/CLP.23)

As a Global Certification Forum (GCF) Registered Test Organisation (RTO) we are able to offer NB-IoT and Cat M1 Field Trial testing, which we have now completed on multiple networks.  At the recent GCF Steering Group meeting hosted by IoTAS in Guildford (UK) it was confirmed that it is mandatory for any GCF Recognised Test Organisation (RTO) completing the testing on behalf of the manufacturer to have obtained ISO 17025 Accreditation for GSMA TS.40/CLP.23. The GCF RTO must also be listed on the GCF web site with the required accreditation: GSMA TS.40/CLP.23. Therefore please be advised that at this time; IoTAS are the only Independent Recognised Test Organisation to have obtained this accreditation and can complete this testing. IoTAS offer a local live network testing solution for CAT M1 devices on Telstra from our office in Sydney, Australia. IoTAS are also able to offer local live network testing for CAT M1 devices on AT&T Mexico and Telcel Mexico from our partners based in Guadalajara Mexico. If you are developing an NB-IoT or Cat M1 product and would like testing to be completed by a certified, quality driven RTO then contact us here.
