2) Sigfox Verified™ certification
This certification is very different to Sigfox Ready. Its goal is to implement the Sigfox stack inside a radio solution. The Sigfox technology is open to be integrated into any compatible sub-GHz radio transceiver.
The Sigfox Verified™ certification is for semiconductor companies willing to develop modules or reference designs which embed the Sigfox library. It is also for end customers who would like to develop a product based on radio solutions which do not embed the Sigfox stack.
Conducted tests ensure that the Sigfox protocol is well implemented in the radio solution, and that our requirements in terms of spectrum and modulation are respected. Once your radio solution is "Verified", you can use it again for any other product: from then on, they will only need to pass the Sigfox Ready certification.
Who needs to pass the Sigfox Verified™ testing and apply for certification?
- Semiconductor companies willing to develop an integrated Sigfox module.
- End customers willing to develop their own radio solutions (transceivers, etc.).
Note: Some customers are willing to develop their own radio solution for their device. They will also need to pass the tests, and to apply for the Sigfox Ready certification. This is to ensure that their product is performing correctly during radiated tests.
