The Itron Milli certification program is intended to verify the devices will be "well behaved" on the network. The testing assesses the RF transmit and receive performance and whether the sensor meets the communication protocol specifications. The certification is mandatory for any device to be connected to an Itron production network.
The certification program conducts the following tests:
- Antenna Pattern and Gain
- RF Receive Sensitivity
- CoAP Interoperability
Getting certified implies the commitment of the partner to ensure that all their devices joinin Itron production networks network will have sufficient RF performance to communicate on the network and that the communications will be interoperable per the communication protocol specifications.
Partner shall demonstrate this commitment with evidence of compliance generated on a device, which is representative of all devices of the same model deployed on the network. This evidence is information provided and and test results, generated by Itron accredited test houses, which will be provided to Itron during the certification submission process.
Following successful completion of the certification tests, Itron delivers a certificate to the partner for a given device model.
