“CableLabs Certified®” and “CableLabs Qualified” Testing

Kyrio is now the one-stop shop for testing and certification programs, previously performed by CableLabs.

We’ve set the standard for certification. A device with a “CableLabs Certified®” or “CableLabs Qualified” rating means the device has passed a series of compliance tests and has demonstrated interoperable functionality with other CableLabs certified devices. Developed by working in cooperation with cable operators and cable equipment manufactures, this premier certification is designed to facilitate the manufacturing of interoperable cable devices, including cable modems, set top boxes, digital television, and telephony.
