The Wireless/ Internet of Things (IoT) is not the future. It is already here. From wearable devices like smartwatches and wireless earphones, to interactive furniture such as voice-activated lights and remote-controlled cooking appliances, many of us are already tapping into the power of wireless communication without even realizing it.
With widespread adoption of self-driving automotives and construction of smart cities underway, the smart grid networks that support IoT devices will only grow even faster. This growth potential holds much promise for IoT manufacturers. But maintaining security and interoperability for all devices connected to IoT networks is just as, if not more crucial, to ensuring sustainable growth in the sector.

With evolving wireless IoT technology regulation comes added compliance complexity. Countries across the globe are looking to safeguard national interest and cybersecurity of their citizens by ensuring that wireless technology is deployed in a way that does not interfere with geographical restrictions nor compromise safety.
As such, in-country testing and type approvals based on existing regulatory requirements such as EU RED or FCC are being enforced more strictly. But fret not. Seamless entry into new markets is still possible with GRL’s team of experienced market access experts who have vast experience from widespread global presence, localized expertise, stringent testing, and internationally recognized market access certification services.

In 2014, GRL was selected by the Thread Group to develop the official Thread test harness, an integrated software and hardware automation tool used to test the Thread protocol stack. Through close collaboration with UL and the Thread Technical Committee, GRL successfully incorporated the Thread IoT test harness into the Thread product certification program.
Founded by an industry alliance consisting of ARM, NXP Semiconductor, Nest, Samsung, and Silicon Labs, the Thread Group has grown rapidly since late 2014 and continues to provide reliable, cost-effective, and low-power IP-based communication for IoT applications.
November 2016 saw the release of Thread Group’s initial hardware reference test bed and test harness, as well as the opening of its test labs to members. That same year, the alliance established a new tier of sponsor-level membership, which consisted of ARM, NXP, and Silicon Labs. The first conforming stacks to successfully pass the Thread 1.1 technical specification testing was also released during the same period.
