Skylo Certified

NTN-Enabled Device Certification with Skylo

Certify your devices with Skylo's direct-to-device, standards-based Non-Terrestrial Network (NTN).

Skylo certifies cellular chipsets modems, modules, and devices to seamlessly work with the Skylo network, typically requiring only firmware-level adaptions to the latest 3GPP NTN standards along with Skylo's Standards Plus requirements.

Why Skylo?

Seamless Connectivity

Skylo-certified devices will seamlessly and transparently communicate with the Skylo network.

Faster Time-to-Market

Established test plans detail exactly what is required to be certified, enabling device manufacturers to streamline the certification process and release products faster.

3GPP R17 Based

Enables seamless integration across diverse systems and devices, delivering reliability, security, and scalability across devices. Enhances the user experience, drives innovation, and future-proofing.

Benefits

- Upon successful certification, OEMs receive “Skylo Certified” status and join our growing ecosystem
  • Gain compliance with the latest 3GPP NTN standards
  • Gain compliance with Skylo’s ‘Standards Plus’ capabilities (see our blog on Skylo Standards Plus). 
  • Officially access Skylo's network.
  • Maintain compliance with certain regulatory requirements.
  • Market their devices to customers wanting to use NTN, enhancing their reach, credibility, and, for operators, increasing revenue opportunities.
  • Upon successful certification, the OEMs market their devices as “Skylo Certified.”

Process

Skylo provides its Certification Requirements Compliance Matrix that lists all the mandatory and optional requirements to OEMs, including chipset vendor, module vendor, or device maker. 
The OEMs/Chipset vendors implement the requirements in their respective devices/chipsets. The requirements are typically firmware-level changes and not fundamental hardware changes.
Implemented requirements are tested against Skylo-specific and regulatory requirements in the Skylo lab, ISO 17025 accredited third-party test houses, and the Skylo live commercial OTA network.
The test results are cross-checked against requirements. When the test results satisfy the requirements, Skylo will then run a validation on the final firmware before granting certification.
