Thread Certification Services
Thread certification processes – helping to build reliable and interoperable devices for the smart world

The Thread Group was established to promote the Thread technology as a foundation for Smart Home Services and beyond. Thread is an IP-based, low power, secure mesh networking technology, focused on providing a method for IoT devices to communicate securely and seamlessly. Thread was originally designed with a special focus on smart home and building automation applications such appliances, climate control, energy usages, lighting, safety, security etc. but its reach is beginning to extend to further IoT applications.

Advantages of Thread certification

Components (chipsets, stacks or modules) as well as end-products can participate in the Thread Certification scheme. In order to bear the Thread logo, they need to be tested and certified according to the Thread requirements.

The scope of the certification program has been designed to verify compliance and interoperability for the defined device types such as Boarder Router, Routers, Router-Eligible End Devices and Sleepy End Devices.
