DC-MD-VA Metro Area RF Testing Certification Capabilities »

Radio frequency (RF) testing simulates the functionality and performance of radio and telecommunications equipment to ensure that devices will not only interfere with other users of the radio frequency spectrum but also verify that the radio equipment is using the radio spectrum effectively. Other tests are also usually required to verify that your device meets local regulations for electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), electrical safety and RF exposure.

    What is ?

    RF testing, or Radio Frequency testing, evaluates radio and telecommunications equipment to ensure there is no interference with the devices and users of the surrounding RF environment. The testing involves an evaluation of a device’s use of the radio spectrum and the influence of emitted and absorbed RF radiation on radio devices operating in the immediate vicinity.

    There are also protocol tests that are performed to evaluate the compatibility with other devices. Examples of protocol testing include:
