BQB Bluetooth Qualification Bodies, referred to as Bluetooth qualification or BQB certification. The product has the Bluetooth function and the Bluetooth logo is marked on the product appearance. It must pass the Bluetooth BQB certification. The Bluetooth test laboratory must be a BQTF (Bluetooth Qualification Test Facility) laboratory authorized by SIG to certify Bluetooth related products.
一、 Which companies need to apply for BQB certification?
1. Our manufacturer.
2. According to the regulations of the Bluetooth Association of your brand, not only our manufacturers need to have BQB certification, but also the owners of the branded brands need to have BQB certification.
Who is the patent owner of Bluetooth technology?
Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG), which invented Bluetooth technology. If we want to use its patent, we must obtain its authorization. Without BQB certification, the products using Bluetooth technology will be exported. If the customs finds that the products cannot provide BQB certification during customs clearance, the products will be directly detained by the local customs.
二、 What are the types of BQB certification?
BQB certification is divided into BQB listing and BQB test certification.
BQB listing, also known as EPL listing, refers to the listing form of Bluetooth BQB certification, such as the finished Bluetooth speaker. If the Bluetooth module has passed BQB certification, the Bluetooth speaker product can not apply for BQB certification again. As long as the authorization of the module supplier is obtained, the product can be uploaded to the BQB website in the form of listing.
三、 What is the significance of applying for BQB certification?
At present, the global Internet of Things application growth trend is obvious. According to the data released by well-known institutions, it is estimated that the global Internet of Things market size will exceed 100 billion US dollars in 2018, and the compound annual growth rate will remain above 31%. According to statistics and forecasts, the number of global Internet of Things devices will reach 6.4 billion in 2016 and 8.4 billion in 2017, with an annual growth rate of 31%. It is estimated that the number of global Internet of Things devices will reach 20.8 billion by 2020. The potential business opportunities have attracted a large number of enterprises to transform to the Internet of Things industry, and Bluetooth is a crucial wireless connection technology in the Internet of Things.
It is understood that at present, there are thousands of enterprises related to Bluetooth modules in China, large and small, but most of them are agents. The technical strength and product quality of enterprises with R&D capabilities are also mixed. It is difficult to meet the quality requirements of BQB certification, and the cost of certification is high. Bluetooth low-power applications are looking forward to the future market. At present, few manufacturers are willing to invest in high certification costs, so there are only a few Bluetooth modules that have passed BQB certification in China, If customers who develop Bluetooth products use modules without BQB certification, they need not only a lot of certification fees, but also professional technical assistance in debugging. If the Bluetooth module itself has passed the BQB certification, the customer's Bluetooth product only needs to be filed in SIG, which can save a considerable amount of money.
