Press release date: February 25, 2014

Rohde Schwarz's RS TS8980FTA-2 and R&S CMW500 platforms help expand Intertek's overall test capacity and capabilities, making device certification and carrier acceptance testing faster and more efficient.

Columbia, MD — Intertek, the leading quality solutions provider to industries worldwide and a globally accredited testing laboratory for wireless device certification, has selected the R&S TS8980FTA-2 and R&S CMW500 wireless test platforms for its LTE carrier aggregation, IMS, VoLTE, RCS, GSM, WCDMA conformance and carrier acceptance test requirements. These test platforms allow Intertek to quickly and expertly test manufacturers' wireless devices to carriers' latest requirements, which helps facilitate acceptance onto their networks.

As mobile device manufacturers continue to incorporate the latest wireless standards, such as LTE Release 10 with carrier aggregation, IMS, VoLTE and RCS, Intertek, with the help of companies like Rohde & Schwarz, develop new and innovative testing procedures to ensure the quality of a wireless device without adding significant testing costs or negatively impacting time-to-market. Test solutions must be quickly and easily reconfigured for almost any type of industry conformance or carrier acceptance test. Meeting these challenges requires flexible solutions that can seamlessly address the testing complexities of legacy, current and future technologies.

"With an increasing array of 4G devices hitting the market, it was important for Intertek to support the full range of conformance and carrier acceptance tests covering advanced technologies that customers are asking for now and throughout 2014. VoLTE, carrier aggregation and several other Release 9 & 10 LTE features are critical technologies and the demand for ensuring the performance and conformance of the latest devices is very high," commented Ron Bernot, senior staff engineer at Intertek. "We understand the pressures our customers are up against, whether it's getting products certified faster or for less money. That is why we selected Rohde & Schwarz, as our partner. Their R&S TS8980FTA-2 and R&S CMW500 platforms are flexible, cost effective solutions for our customers, and reliable solutions for us."
