Here are some of the key links in the developer value chain, along with related companies whose expertise may add value to your development effort.
PTCRB and FCC certifications are necessary for a successful device launch. In order to make certification easier, AT&T has partnered with six MBA Labs that help our device partners achieve FCC and PTCRB certification for their products. In addition, the MBA labs aid in completing the submission process for the AT&T certification of the device.
Device partners are encouraged, but not required to use one of these labs for PTCRB certification.
