Telit Wireless Solutions, a global provider of high-quality machine-to-machine (M2M) solutions, products and services, and IOTAS, the UK’s  independent wireless field testing company, announced that following the introduction of a new class of membership for device makers integrating embedded wireless modules, the Global Certification Forum (GCF) has certified the first product to successfully achieve the new certification. The product receiving this certification was based on Telit’s GE864-QUAD V2 module.  The new process allows a reduced scope of device testing for M2M device makers when using a wireless module already tested to the latest GCF specifications. The move leads to substantial savings, bringing M2M in reach of more business models which are today on the brink of viability for costs or time-to-market constraints.

“We complete GCF approval on our whole product range as a sign of our commitment to reliability, and to give our customers a better experience as they get their devices through the different stages of deployments in the telemetry and M2M market” said Carlos Perez, Executive Vice President Global Sales at Telit Wireless Solutions. “We welcomed this new certification class that allows our customers to achieve GCF certification in a reduced timescale and cost, leveraging the experience of a leading test organization such as IOTAS.”

Associate Manufacturer Members are required to work with an Assessment Capable Entity (ACE), such as IOTAS, to identify the conformance, field trial and interoperability testing that need to be undertaken.

“As an ACE, IOTAS is formally recognized by the GCF as possessing the necessary skills, qualifications and practical experience of GCF processes to support members through GCF certification” said Kevin Spalding, Operations Director for IOTAS, “and we are proud to have successfully completed this milestone with the support of Telit’s field engineering team”.
