Mobile network operator certifications

This section shows the nRF9160 modem firmware versions that are certified for operators who have their own certification programs. Most operators do not require other certifications than GCF or PTCRB. For the current status of GCF and PTCRB certifications, see nRF9160 certifications.

The LwM2M carrier library column shows the certified library that must be used for the given operator. The corresponding nRF Connect SDK column specifies the SDK version that contains the specific version of the LwM2M carrier library.
