    5G Testing and Certification

    What is 5G?

    New innovative products and technologies such as self-driving cars, the Internet of Things (IoT), VR/AP, etc. require better wireless connectivity. 5G technology makes them a reality because this generation of mobile communication has many advantages over 4G: 

    • More stable connection and transfer of data;
    • The higher download speed that is almost 100 times faster than 4g and reaches several Gbps;
    • Increased capacity for a single bandwidth that ensures the connection of more equipment and devices simultaneously

    This wireless technology allows you to accelerate automation processes, implement AI in workflows, create intelligent factories, and more.

    Why is 5G Compliance Testing Essential for Your Business?

    The impact of the 5th generation mobile network on the economy and communication will be more revolutionary than any previous generation of mobile communications. Although new devices based on this technology already provide tangible benefits, the potential of this communication type will be fully revealed in the next decade. At the same time, their offer on the global market requires testing 5G and certification confirming compliance with the current international, regional, and national regulations.

    Market Requirements

    For the 5th generation mobile ecosystem to become a reality, more work needs to be done at the level of governmental agencies. Additional frequency bands are required to ensure uninterrupted network operation. Currently, high-speed broadband access is proposed through the use of mmWave technology. These radio waves include the 24 GHz ‒ 100 GHz spectrum. However, using such technology has some challenges. Proximity to the transmitter tower is necessary as the signal can be easily blocked.

    5G Wireless Testing and Certification

    If you want to provide goods or services in any segment of the economy based on this revolutionary technology, you need to pass 5G testing and certification. Wireless devices must undergo evaluation to ensure their safety and environmental neutrality for the people using them. Obtaining a certificate confirming compliance with international standards will make it easier and hassle-free to transport your products to the global market. To pass 5G tests, you need to evaluate your products according to the following indicators: 

    • Radiofrequency (RF)
    • Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC)
    • Specific absorption rate (SAR)
    • Quality of service (QoS), and others


    The wide opportunities provided by 5G contribute to the introduction of innovations in all spheres of human life. In particular, among the leaders in the use of Fifth-generation wireless products are the following industries: 

    • Medicine
    • Automotive
    • Urban planning
    • Enterprises
    • VR/AR Industry
    • Household appliances
    • IoT products, and many others
