This partnership will also support the IP500 members in applying the interoperable technologies (supplied by the partner CoreNetiX) that create opportunities for improved efficiency, faster time to market, which empower IP500 OEMs to launch their products in a local (worldwide) marketplace on time.

Stefan Kischka, Vice President Electrical and Global Business Field Manager of TÜV Rheinland, said: “We are proud to become an active partner of the IP500 Alliance and we are passionate about helping to define a certification standard for the IP500 products globally. By providing broad and global testing expertise into the IP500 domain, TÜV Rheinland can provide a one-stop-shopping for certification services as part of its drive to deliver a positive contribution to a fully interoperable IoT future of almost every smart device.”
