▍What is CTIA
CTIA, the abbreviation of Cellular Telecommunications and Internet Association, which established in 1984, is the wireless communication and internet association as well as a nonprofit non-governmental organization for the purpose of guaranteeing benefit of operators, manufacturers and users. The members of CTIA consist of all American operators and manufacturers for mobile radio services, as well as providers and manufacturers for wireless data services and products. Supported by FCC(Federal Communications Commission) and Congress, CTIA performs a large part of duties and functions that were used to be conducted by the government before. In 1991, CTIA created an unbiased, independent and centralized product evaluation system for wireless industry. Under this system, all wireless products in consumer grade shall take conformance test and will be granted to utilize CTIA marking once it complied with the relevant standards as well as allowing to be trade in North American communication market.
CATL（CTIA Authorized Testing Laboratory） is a testing and reviewing laboratory authorized by CTIA and the testing reports issued from CATL would be all approved by CTIA. While other testing reports and results from non-CATL will not be accepted or having no authority to submit reports to CTIA. CTIA possesses various CATL for different certificate accreditation: As for battery conformity with IEEE1725 certificate, it can only be completed by CATL which is qualified to do Battery conformity test and censorship.
▍CTIA Battery Testing Standards
a) Certification Requirement for Battery system Compliance to IEEE1725--- Systems with single-cell batteries and systems containing multi cells batteries connected in parallel shall be certified to IEEE 1725.
b) Certification Requirement for Battery system Compliance to IEEE1625--- Systems with multi cells batteries connected in either series or series-parallel connection shall be certified to IEEE 1625.
Warm tips: It is necessary to select appropriate accreditation standards for batteries used in mobile phone and computers, rather than to misuse IEE1725 for mobile phone and IEEE1625 for computers.
● Hardware Technology: By participating the battery pack conference held by CTIA in US annually since2014, MCM is able to gain the latest news and guidelines of CTIA in a more prompt and accurate way.
● Certification Resources Technology Support: MCM has rich resources for CTIA certificate, including the cooperation of TUVRH, which meet the customized demand of clients from different parts of the world.
