Our technical expertise, project management and certification testing capabilities can assist you in meeting Global Certification Forum (GCF) and PCS Type Certification Review Board (PTCRB) requirements for your cellular device. Our solutions were designed to make the entire process as efficient, straightforward and cost-effective as possible. They include:

  • Global Reach, which enables us to test and certify your device in most markets
  • Precertification Testing, which allows us to identify potential noncompliances
  • Tailored Testing Solutions, which offer enhanced process efficiency and streamline testing cycles
  • Flexible Working Schedules, which help us meet your stringent deadlines


GCF/PTCRB compliance is important because you need to obtain GCF and PTCRB certifications for your cellular mobile devices before market launch. The GCF and PTCRB are network operator founded organizations established to create third-party cellular mobile device certification to ensure that a device meets a minimum set of requirements. Our extensive range of wireless testing services covers all Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) cellular technologies, including GERAN (GSM Edge Radio Access Network), UTRA (Universal Terrestrial Radio Access) and Evolved Universal Terrestrial Radio Access (E-UTRA).
