In November 1999, 7layers set up its North America operation in Irvine, California (USA), right in the heart of the wireless world, and within easy reach from Los Angeles and San Diego. Since the beginning we continuously expanded test capabilities and services offered.
In November 2006 we expanded our operations again by moving into a new 20,400 sq feet (1900 sq meter) facility to enable convenient, private work environments for our visiting customers and offer a broader level of services.
As part of the 7layers group we are involved in technology development like LTE, EDGE and WCDMA (UMTS). We are the only lab located in the U.S. offering full coverage for GSM, GPRS, EDGE, HSPA+, LTE, Bluetooth and W-CDMA under a single roof. We are working closely together with industry leaders like Verizon Wireless thus promoting the further advancement of the LTE technology.
7layers Irvine offers the full scope of 7layers test and market access services. As designer of InterLab test solutions we are geared to support clients who are using Interlab software components or Interlab test products with set-up services and onsite support & maintenance. Manufacturers turn to us for engineering services like for example the validation of test cases and test systems.
