Kyrio is now the one-stop shop for testing and Certification programs, previously performed by CableLabs®.
We’ve set the standard for Certification. A device with a “CableLabs Certified” or “CableLabs Qualified” rating means the device has passed a series of compliance tests and has demonstrated interoperable functionality with other CableLabs Certified devices. Developed in cooperation with cable operators and cable equipment manufacturers, this premier Certification is designed to facilitate the manufacturing of interoperable cable devices, including cable modems, set-top boxes, digital television and telephony.
Five Steps to Achieving Certification
Test your device to ensure that it is compliant with the specification.
Upon completion, your device results are sent to the Certification Board for approval
Phase 1: Core Testing
TIMELINE = 4-5 WEEKS
Includes tests that are deemed very central to the specification, are critical for field deployment success, and that cover a broad range of functionality with an emphasis on RF performance.
Phase 2: Secondary Testing
TIMELINE = Additional 4-5 WEEKS after Core testing has been successfully completed.
Covers the remainder of DOCSIS 3.1 tests to ensure device compliance to the specification.
