Don't Let ETSI & FCC Certifications Stall your Bluetooth®-Connected IoT/Wireless Design Project

Wireless regulations and certification processes can be challenging even for companies with significant experience in wireless products, but that level of complexity is multiplied for companies who are designing their first IoT/M2M products to tap into the growing market for “smart” products. Their traditional products have never been connected in the past. But new products that utilize wireless technology like Bluetooth to transmit and receive data wirelessly must be certified by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) and/or the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in the United States, otherwise those products cannot be brought to market in that given region. That means that every engineer who is working on an IoT/M2M product design needs to have a strategy for ETSI and/or FCC compliance. Read more on the EBV Blog, here.
