Carrier Network Certification
Partner with an expert in network certification for your mobile device or connected M2M/IoT product
Products and devices of all types rely on connecting to a cellular network for operation. Mobile phones, connected vehicles, and medical devices, as well as any product requiring integration or capabilities within machine to machine (M2M) or an Internet of Things (IoT) environment, must meet carrier network certifications before they can operate on a network.
Partnering with Intertek serves you with a knowledgeable team of experts dedicated to understanding your product, your business objectives and simplifying a complex certification process.
