Powering the future of connectivity

Device certification based on globally recognized standards, simplified and accessible for IoT manufacturers of all shapes and sizes.

IoT devices connected to cellular networks are key to extending our connected future. 

CTIA Certification™ has been certifying thousands of wireless devices in the cellular wireless ecosystem for more than 30 years. The IoT Network Certified™ certification program is specifically crafted to support the needs of the IoT community.

Why Does Certification Matter?

Trust. The IoT Network Certified certification program was developed by industry experts to verify that devices follow the cellular-industry-developed requirements for global network connectivity. This provides assurances to both device manufacturers and network operators of a product’s readiness to connect to cellular networks.


CTIA’s IoT Network Certified program is important for Ubicquia’s UbiCell Streetlight Management System customers.

It provides a level of assurance in the product’s quality, while also confirming its interoperability and scalability. This gives our customers confidence that their UbiCells will integrate well with existing systems and adapt to future needs.

At AT&T, we take pride in the high quality of service we provide to our customers. The IoT Network Certified program ensures devices comply with the global standards upon which our network is built.

Getting AT&T Network Ready (see www.att.com/iotdevices) means first getting IoT Network Certified. It’s the industry baseline certification we rely on to help us keep our processes simple and cost-effective. Utilizing industry-recognized IoT certification ensures we do not need to repeat common testing for each device a partner may choose to connect to our network. We can trust that the verification has been done and has been done well.
