About BOS certification

Currently the network is being finalized and most German federal states have started using the new network for their police forces, rescue services, fire brigades etc. Due to the nature of the service, the reliability and interoperability of both fixed and mobile terminal equipment used within this network is of fundamental importance. The German government has therefore determined that all terminal equipment used within the BOS digital radio network needs to be thoroughly tested and certified.

The BOS certification process has a strong focus on technology implementation, conformance to technology standards, and interoperability.
BOS terminal certification is granted on the basis of interoperability testing, carried out by ISO17025 test laboratories accredited by the BSI, such as 7layers. (BSI: Federal Office for Information Security; http://www.bsi.bund.de/)
