LoRa Alliance® Device Certification

Posted by Malcolm Green on Jul 12, 2019 1:51:36 AM

The LoRa Alliance® has a certification program to test whether or not an end-device meets the functional requirements of the LoRaWAN® specification. LoRaWAN CertifiedCM end devices ensure interoperability and compliance with any LoRaWAN-based network, and device manufacturers may carry the LoRaWAN Certified mark. The certification mark provides end users with the confidence of using devices that are reliable and that behave according to LoRa Alliance specifications.

A device manufacturer must be a member of the LoRa Alliance to become certified. Once the manufacturer is registered as a member of the LoRa Alliance, the manufacturer may contact one of the authorized test houses to begin the certification process.

LoRaWAN Certification is based on a set of test scripts that will test mandatory LoRaWAN-specified features such as:

● Frame format and encryption

● Timing of end-device receive slots

● Frequency-hopping and data rate adaptation

● Cryptographic implementation
