This new lab will allow Continua to certify products in the growing Asian market.
“Our test lab standards are very high and we are confident that TTA will continue to exceed our expectations.”
TTA’s involvement in Continua Plugfests, Test and Certification work group and the Continua Certified Experts (CCEs) program has helped nurture the Alliance’s successful certification program.

To build trust and ensure peace of mind, Continua has created a product certification program with a recognizable logo signifying interoperability with other certified products. Products that carry the Continua Certified™ logo have a strong competitive advantage and provide net savings because they are:
- “Future proofed” so they won’t become prematurely obsolete
- Easy to use
- Less labor-intensive
- Free of inefficient technology duplication
Certification includes conformance and interoperability testing. Manufacturers are encouraged to prepare for the certification process by pre-testing devices with the Continua Test Tool to ensure a successful certification experience.
