Certification

Device Certification

For developers who are creating wirelessly connected, next-generation devices, it can be a tremendous challenge to refine your device design while optimizing your component options and validating your operating system and chipset selections. AT&T IoT services can help bring these innovative devices to market.

For a successful connected device launch, PTCRB and FCC certifications are necessary. To facilitate an efficient certification process, AT&T works with various labs that help our device partners achieve FCC and PTCRB certification for their products. In addition, we can help you complete the submission process for AT&T certification of the device.

Below are some labs which we understand offer PTCRB certification services.
