Product Certification - Case Asqella

Products have to be certified according to many different norms and standards. These include national and international norms, so the requirements can differ between countries and continents. Norms and standards also change continuously.

World's first LoRaWAN certification

The purpose of  LoRaWAN certification is to ensure that a product complies with the LoRaWAN specifications and is compatible with LoRaWAN networks and other LoRaWAN products. Only through the certification can a manufacturer be sure that their product functions correctly without interfering with others.

The world’s first LoRaWAN certification testing was done in Etteplan’s laboratory in Jyväskylä, Finland.

Industrial internet increases requirements for antennas

Wireless devices are becoming more common due to industrial internet. This means an increasing number of devices with an antenna. The antennas are usually covered and hidden inside the devices. Industrial internet devices are also heading for a direction where they become smaller, cheaper and less power consuming all the time. Often they are also battery-operated. All this causes headache for a person responsible for wireless (radio) link performance and operation.

A fault in an electronic device can stem from a variety of sources: electronics and/or mechanical design, an error or a poor work method in assembly, a deviation in component quality or simply a low-quality component. When choosing a component, it is important to identify the factors that are critical in terms of its reliability.
