GCF Field Trial Test Services at 7 layers
now with ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation!

7 layers has the first test laboratory world-wide whose GCF Field Trial Test Services have been accredited by DATech according to ISO/IEC 17025. The accreditation encloses GCF field Trial Testing according to GCF-CC and GSMA DG.11 and related Application Enabler Tests.

Interoperability and Field Trial Testing examines the behavior of wireless terminals with public operator networks, in a dynamic environment. Real-life demonstrations in various operator networks and locations are important, if manufacturers want to check whether their products fulfill all set requirements.
The Global Certification Forum (GCF) requires a number of Field Trial Tests as part of its
GCF certification program for mobile phones and other wireless communications products.
7 layers has offered Field Trial Testing for many years and gathered experiences with testing in major Field Trial Qualified Networks, such as o2, Orange, Vodafone, Telefonica, NTT DoCoMo etc.
Having achieved ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation for our GCF Field Trial Test Services confirms once again the reliability and high quality standards of the 7 layers services.
