HomeGrid Forum Certification Testing

HomeGrid Forum (HGF) certification testing is designed to ensure that a commercially available product (containing both HomeGrid silicon and production software/firmware) complies with ITU-T standards and the HomeGrid requirements regarding interoperability, performance, etc. as specified in the HomeGrid Forum Certification Test Plans.

HomeGrid Forum members can submit their system products for certification testing according to a suite of tests developed by HGF Compliance and Interoperability Work Group (C&I WG). All Certification test documents are available to any HomeGrid member in good standing. Only HGF members are permitted to submit system products for Certification testing. Non-members seeking certification must first become members of HGF.

Certification Testing is performed at an HGF accredited test house (ATH). Members’ products, which successfully complete Certification testing at an Accredited Test House, are awarded the relevant HGF Certification.
