Testing and Certification of Telecom Equipments

 Mandatory Testing and Certification of Telecom Equipments (MTCTE)

The Indian Telegraph (Amendment) Rules, 2017, provides that every telecom equipment must undergo prior mandatory testing and certification. The detailed procedure for Mandatory Testing and Certification of Telecom Equipments (MTCTE) under these rules has been notified. The testing is to be carried out by Indian Accredited Labs {which have been designated as CAB (Conformance Assessment Body) by TEC}  and based upon their test reports, certificate shall be issued by TEC. A separate portal has been developed for online administration of this procedure.

 IPV6 Ready Logo Testing

Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6) Lab setup by Telecommunication Engineering Centre (TEC) has earned a unique distinction of being approved by IPv6 Ready Logo Committee under IPv6 Forum which is an International body. This achievement is significant for TEC and the country, as very few other labs in the world have achieved this milestone. India has thus joined Europe and a select group of countries, which include USA, Japan, China, Taiwan, France and Korea. This test lab caters to Conformance as well as Interoperability testing of various software/ equipment, which have implemented IPv6. It has also the capability of examination of test results sent by other IPv6 Ready Logo approved labs. (Click here for details)
