FiRa UWB Certification: What is it and Why Should Your Company Achieve it?

For many entrepreneurs, implementation of the FiRa UWB standard is a real game-changer – especially if accuracy and security of measuring the distance to a target or determining the position of a specific resource are your top priorities. By selecting the FiRa UWB standard, co-existing with BLE and WiFi, you choose reliability and lower energy costs. 

Why UWB? Ultra-wideband technology is fast becoming a ubiquitous pillar of wireless connectivity by providing pinpoint location capabilities (up to 0.5 meters accuracy). This technology allows you to track your resources and immediately locate the ones that you’re looking for at any time.

Thus, it’s highly beneficial for companies specializing in UWB-based solutions to join the FiRa Certification Program and make sure that their devices meet all essential standards. Obtaining certification, meaning being compliant with the FiRa UWB standard, can form a crucial foundational for building an open and interoperable ecosystem.

If you’d like to discover how to achieve FiRa UWB Certification and learn more about the practical side of the testing process and useful tools, you are in the right place.
