Amazon Sidewalk specification

The Amazon Sidewalk specifications consists of the following documents.

Amazon Sidewalk protocol specification

This document defines the wireless protocol used by Endpoint devices in the Amazon Sidewalk network. It covers information about:

  • Protocol stack layers
  • The Amazon Sidewalk sub-1 GHz radio
  • Interactions between endpoints and other elements of the system, such as commands and procedures.
  • Power profiles
  • Security and architecture
  • Frame formats and detailed descriptions of frame fields.

The document does not include the detailed specification of gateways and the Amazon Sidewalk Cloud, or the interactions between the gateways and the Amazon Sidewalk Cloud.

For more information, see Amazon Sidewalk protocol specification document.

Amazon Sidewalk test specification

This document provides the Amazon Sidewalk reference test cases for certification of compliance with the Amazon Sidewalk specification.

The document includes test cases for endpoint products, referred to as Design Under Test (DUT). At this time, gateway certification is not required, as all gateways on the Amazon Sidewalk network are Amazon devices, such as Echo and Ring products.

For more information, see Amazon Sidewalk test specification document.
