Please take care that in the EU we do not have an Over the Air test like TRP and TIS. TRP and TIS are not a part of R&TTE. If you would like to make direct business with big Cellular Providers then some of them in the EU will ask for TRP and TSI as well. You product may have R&TTE but TRP or TSI is too bad to get listed with the Cellular Provider. If you are not sure which approvals and tests your M2M device has to pass it is hight recommended to contact a third party with skills in radio approvals and Cellular Provider tests.

  1. Hi Harald
    You changed TSI=>TIS at two locations. But there is still one TSI:
    “You product may have R&TTE but TRP or TSI is too worst to get listed with the Cellular Provider.”
    You might also correct from “worst” to “bad”.

    Thanks for great information!
