ETS-Lindgren was happy to collaborate with Mphasis in establishing a test lab in India. They have consulted with their team to learn more about the advanced requirements and goals for testing wireless products. While meeting with the highly skilled departments at Mphasis, they were able to share the expertise on the nuances of Wi-Fi test lab requirements and collectively create a solution to optimize the flexibility of the test chamber. ETS-Lindgren designed the wireless chamber to meet Mphasis' test requirements and management goals – now and in the future. The facility addresses the growing demand for wireless testing and certification services, offering partnered clients with state-of-the-art technology and a comprehensive service solution, including certifications for global market access, all under one roof.

They continue to see a significant uptick in the deployment of next-generation wireless technology applications, and ensuring products are well tested and interoperable with the existing ecosystem is a top priority for all players in this growing market.
