What is the process for a modem to be retail certified?

The process for a modem to be retail certified involves two key steps.

First, the modem must undergo Cable Labs Retail Certification, a comprehensive testing process conducted by CableLabs, ensuring compliance with industry standards.
Secondly, once Cable Labs Retail Certification is successfully completed, the modem is then submitted to individual cable providers, such as Comcast, for carrier-specific testing.

This process involves evaluating the modem's performance on the specific network and ensuring it meets the unique standards of each carrier. The entire certification process can take several weeks to months, depending on factors such as the complexity of the modem and the thoroughness of testing.
