Interoperability Testing for Devices & Systems

In addition to regulatory radio testing, our laboratories also offer interoperability testing for various combinations of radio technologies.
This aids our customers in ensuring the functionality of their products in various application scenarios.

Through interoperability testing for radio technologies, it can be determined whether devices and systems based on different radio technologies
can communicate seamlessly with each other. This guarantees that devices and systems collaborate smoothly,
providing users with a consistent experience.

Various interoperability tests can be conducted for radio technologies. These tests can focus on the following aspects:

  • Communication capability
  • Communication quality
  • Communication efficiency
  • Communication reliability
  • Communication security

Why is Radio Testing Important?

For market approval of products with radio technologies, radio testing is essential. These testing procedures serve to demonstrate the interoperability, safety, and functionality of the respective devices. Regulatory approval, including the necessary product testing, is legally mandated in most countries before these products can be sold within a country or market.

The requirements often vary from country to country. Within the EU, the Radio Equipment Directive (RED) is particularly significant for radio products. The test reports based on regulatory radio tests serve as evidence that the products comply with the relevant legal requirements of the target markets. This allows market approval to be carried out in cooperation with local authorities or certification bodies.

Which Products Require Radio Testing?


Radio testing is necessary for products that utilize one or more radio technologies.
These wireless technologies include examples such as:

  • Wi-Fi (WLAN)
  • Bluetooth®
  • Radar
  • Ultra-Wideband (UWB)
  • RFID
  • 5G
  • Short Range Devices (SRD)


Radio tests are conducted to ensure that devices can be operated safely and do not cause harmful interference.
Therefore, radio testing is essential for a variety of products that use radio technologies. Here are some examples:

  • Wi-Fi devices: Products like Wi-Fi routers, access points, and Wi-Fi-enabled devices
  • Bluetooth devices: Bluetooth-enabled products like wireless headphones, keyboards, mice, and other wireless peripherals
  • Radio remote controls: Remote controls for various applications such as toys, household appliances, industrial machines, and more
  • IoT devices: A variety of connected devices in the Internet of Things (IoT), such as sensors, actuators, and other wireless communication modules
  • Radio-controlled toys: Toys that use radio technologies for remote control
  • Radio-based medical devices: Medical devices that use wireless communication, such as patient monitoring devices, networked operating tables
  • Mobile phones: All types of mobile phones, including smartphones
  • Vehicle radio systems: Vehicle communication systems, including car radios, GPS devices, and wireless communication components in vehicles
  • Radio modules: Manufacturers of radio modules and components must ensure that their products comply with relevant regulations before being integrated into other devices

cetecom advanced offers suitable testing solutions for these and other types of radio products.
If needed, we can also conduct individually tailored testing procedures. Feel free to reach out to us for more information.

What is tested as part of the radio tests?

In the context of regulatory tests for radio components, various aspects and parameters are tested to ensure that the radio components comply with applicable regulations and standards. These tests are important to ensure that the radio components do not cause harmful interference and can work seamlessly with other wireless devices. Here are some of the commonly tested aspects:

Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC):

These tests aim to ensure that radio components do not generate unwanted electromagnetic disturbances that could affect other electronic devices.

Transmit Power and Frequency:

It is verified whether the transmit power and frequency of the radio components comply with legal requirements to avoid interference with other radio services.

Spectral Purity:

This ensures that the emitted signal of the radio components falls within the designated frequency bands and does not have unwanted side frequencies.


The sensitivity of the radio components is tested to ensure that they are capable of receiving weak signals and processing them reliably.


This includes verifying the safety aspects of the radio components to ensure that they do not pose a danger to users or other devices.

Modulation and Modulation Tolerance:

It is checked whether the modulation of the radio components complies with established norms and tolerance limits are adhered to.


In some cases, tests are conducted to ensure that radio components can communicate smoothly with other devices, especially when it comes to wireless networks or communication systems.

Conformity Assessment:

Radio components may need to undergo a conformity assessment to verify their compliance with relevant technical standards and regulations.

Tests under Various Environmental Conditions:

Radio components are often tested under different environmental conditions to ensure that they function correctly under various temperature, humidity, and other environmental conditions.

Upon successful completion of the tests, the certification process can be initiated based on the test reports. Certification is a requirement for selling and deploying the device in the respective country.

Not all of these tests and procedures are always regulatory requirements – this depends on the requirements of your target markets. However, we offer you many options for testing your products with radio technologies, and in many cases, we can even test beyond regulatory requirements if desired.

Our Radio Laboratories

Our accredited radio laboratories are equipped with modern testing systems
to test your product according to various specifications and guide it through the certification process.

Accreditations in detail


German Accreditation Body (DAkkS)

Our laboratories in Essen and Saarbrücken are accredited by DAkkS according to DIN ISO 17025
to perform various radio tests.

Detailed information on our accreditation scope for our laboratories in Germany
can be found in our accreditation overview.



Our test laboratory in the USA holds EN ISO 17025 accreditation from A2LA for radio
testing and can therefore also offer accredited test services in the field of radio.
