Get the TCB Certification Form from the FCC ID
Once you locate the FCC ID for your device, you will need the TCB authorization file. Obtain the TCB authorization by searching your FCC ID using the FCC Homologation Search Tool.
The TCB certification for homologation can be located by clicking the “Grant” icon for the 800 MHz row. The “Lower Frequency In MHz” and “Upper Frequency In MHz” must be between 800 and 900 MHz for the grant to be valid in Colombia. Example:
Why is FCC ID certification needed? The CRC requires devices to be certified. Uncertified devices may be texted and disable from using the network.

Another strange Apple device has received FCC Approval, Model Number A1846.
This seems to be a second iteration of the A1844 Device.
Reddit users have hypothesized this device is an Apple Pay Device based on its implementation of RS-485.
This Asus WL700gE / WL-700gE is a “Multifunctional Broadrange Wireless Router” with a 160 or 250 GB hard drive installed. It comes labeled with FCC ID MSQWL700GE, however, no FCC registration exists for the device. MSQ is the proper business grantee registration for Asus, and the latter part of the FCC ID (WL700GE) matches the model of the device. Additionally, there don’t seem to be any FCC registrations by Asus around the time of the router release (February 2006) that could match the device (ruling out a typo in registration).
Although the device has been registered in Korea with the labeled FCC registration number, reasons why the device may be unregistered with the FCC remain unclear. Both Asus and the FCC have been contacted for further information.

Harvard Technology of Harvard Engineering in Normanton, UK has received FCC approval for a “Vertical Radio Board, Model WMVRB-915USA”.
FCC ID 2AGAAWMVRB915
IC ID 11286A-WMVRB915
This device operates in the 915 MHz bandwidth, a frequency often used for connected home devices and z-wave technology.
The user manual indicates several models are being produced globally including
WMVRB-868 868MHz variant for use in Europe
WMVRB-915USA 915MHz variant for use in America / Canada
WMVRB-915ANZ 915MHz variant for use in Australia / New Zealand
The WMVRB, known informally as the vertical radio board, is a radio module which allows wireless connectivity to be added to street lighting products which require an interface to a WiMAC installation. The module behaves in the same way as the existing product, known as a leafnode, behaves. A single connector provides both a power connection and a data connection. The motherboard which accepts this module needs to communicate using the RSMS2 protocol. The content of this protocol is confidential but parties providing integration to this module can obtain a copy of the protocol from Harvard Technology subject to entering into an appropriate information sharing agreement.
The approved device was labeled with the following
Manufactured November 2015
Label # 16870128
“Do Not Handle Antenna”
