OEM Discount for Recurring Certification Testing

All OEMs will receive a progressive discount for recurrent certification testing. The procedure to get this progressive discount is described below:

  • The first certification activity for New Product, Product Update and Product Variant involving testing will be charged at list price.
  • Each subsequent certification activity for New Product, Product Update and Product Variant involving testing ordered in less than six (6) months from the previous one will get an additional 2.5% discount, up to a maximum of 10% discount.

Product Update Details

  1. Attribute Changes: when there is a change in the color, labeling, etc. This can be the typical case of regional variants: variant for USA, Europe, Japan, China, etc. The product is exactly the same but the model number is different and color, labeling, language, etc. are different.
  2. Other Cases: when the change is something different than a change of attribute. For example, a family of products with different sizes, but the same AllJoyn hardware and software.
