Test services for a wireless world
Wireless testing and more – for smart devices and IoT services with integrated wireless connectivity Wireless testing and more – for smart devices and IoT services with integrated wireless connectivity
Devices with integrated wireless connectivity are playing a growing role in our daily lives and are becoming a substantial part of the Internet of Things (IoT). To ensure that such devices work according to regulatory requirements, the requirements of Industry Interest Groups, retailers and last but not least the quality policies of manufacturers, they need to be tested carefully during the R&D process and before they enter the global market.
- By turning to 7layers, you are turning to an absolute expert with outstanding experience in wireless testing. Our engineers have seen the development from first GSM mobile phones to smartphones to a connected world with ubiquitous connectivity. So if you want to make sure your wireless testing is in the hands of real experts, trust 7layers for your connected devices and IoT services.
- Test services offered by 7layers go beyond “wireless testing”, as our services are complimented with the large test services portfolio of our parent company Bureau Veritas, a global leader in Testing, Inspection and Certification. So if you need more than just “wireless” just let us know.
- To enhance wireless device performance and ease the certification process, 7layers provides RF consulting, module integration and test plan strategy support.
- Once your device has gone through the test process successfully, we support you with the necessary certification and type approval handling services.
Validation of complete, smart IoT Services require not only testing and certification of the various elements (connected devices, data platforms, applications…) a smart service consists of, but also the evaluation of the complete service once it has been set-up, and the continuous monitoring throughout its lifecycle. Such a complex task requires comprehensive, expert know-how combined with the necessary methods and tools to manage it. 7layers is supporting a number of IoT Services providers in this field. If you are interested in this highly customized process please contact email@example.com.
