TÜV Rheinland India has announced the launch of its LoRaWAN certification program in India. TÜV Rheinland has been selected by the LoRa Alliance® to be the first LoRa Alliance Authorized Test House in India.
It will offer services for testing end devices in IN the 865MHz-867MHz frequency band allocated for LoRaWAN operations in India. The test facility plans to extend its authorization for European ISM band EU 868MHz-870MHz to support local end device manufacturers to certify the devices for European markets as well.
“The importance of device certification for the LoRaWAN standard cannot be understated,” said Donna Moore, CEO, and Chairwoman of the LoRa Alliance. She added, “End-users must have confidence that devices will deliver the expected quality and performance.”
“We are excited about the advancements of the LoRa Alliance certification program in India. As a public network operator, we rely heavily on our device partners to be compliant with LoRaWAN specifications,” said SenRa’s Chief Technology Officer, Kush Mishra.
Mishra added, “Although we make sure all our device partners have gone through our internal testing and fill out our device onboarding questionnaire prior to deploying commercial projects, having the LoRaWAN CertifiedCM stamp of approval will give us confidence that the device will work as well as exponentially reduce our project start date timelines.”
“We are now authorized to test and certify LoRaWAN devices appropriate to LoRa Alliance requirements promoting harmonization, quality, and continued interoperability throughout the product test cycle in terms of functional testing in India,” said Raghavendra Kulkarni, Assistant General Manager, Products, TÜV Rheinland India.
He added, “TÜV Rheinland is a contributor member in LoRa Alliance and is working together since 2015 to provide certified products.”
