MulteFire 1.9 GHz certification


MulteFire 1.9 GHz certification

The MulteFire Alliance thas launched its MulteFire 1.9 GHz Certification Program to ensure that MulteFire devices are interoperable and conform to the MulteFire 1.1 specification. MulteFire Alliance is an international association dedicated to building a global ecosystem based on Long Term Evolution (LTE) and 5G, in configurations that use unlicensed or shared radio spectrum.

The MulteFire 1.9 GHz Certification Program will test eNodeB devices in the 1.9 GHz band in Japan, verifying that devices in this channel can effectively interoperate and communicate via LTE. “The launch of the MulteFire Alliance 1.9 GHz Certification Program in Japan marks a critical step forward in the development of new wireless networks with LTE technology operating standalone in unlicensed and shared spectrum bands,” said Mazen Chmaytelli, president, MulteFire Alliance. “We’re excited to officially begin certification of MulteFire devices in Japan and have plans to expand the program to enable certification of MulteFire devices to additional geographic regions around the world.

MulteFire in 1.9 GHz supports industrial IoT, utilities, transportation and more. The MulteFire Release 1.1 specification which added support for the 1.9 GHz band, also known as sXGP in Japan, takes advantage of the massive device ecosystem in 3GPP Band 39.

DEKRA, a MulteFire Alliance member and wleading expert organization providing product certification and technical reports, will serve as the first authorized test lab for the MulteFire Alliance 1.9 GHz Certification Program. DEKRA offers regulatory, conformance, interoperability, performance, usability, field, and other services for all the key wireless technologies. DEKRA has a large network of testing and certification laboratories with presence in Japan and other key regions. The MulteFire Alliance Authorized Test Lab is located in Yokohama, Japan.

Being the first Authorized Test Lab (ATL) of MulteFire Alliance enhances our position as a leading provider of test services for private LTE,” commented Fernando E. Hardasmal, Executive Vice President and Head of Service Division Product Testing at DEKRA. “Since 2017, DEKRA has supported the MulteFire Alliance’s efforts in delivering MulteFire technology in unlicensed spectrum bands for private LTE networks.
