Intertek has announced an expansion to the Asia-Pacific market for its assurance, testing and certification services for 5G products. The announcement, made possible through new testing platforms and software at the company’s cellular conformance test lab in Taipei, expands the scope of Intertek’s 5G services, which were previously available only in the U.S.

The expansion of services allows manufacturers from a variety of industries in the Asia-Pacific region to test and validate the next generation of mobile and Internet of Things (IoT) devices to requirements of various global markets, including those specific to the US. The company notes that 5G, or 5th Generation, technology will offer faster and more efficient connectivity than 4G, satisfying consumer demand for connected products that offer higher data rates, lower latency, and permit increased device density.

Intertek’s 5G solutions, launched in the U.S. in 2019, include consulting services, R&D support, testing, and certification of 5G-enabled devices. The expansion of these services to Taiwan offers regional manufacturers localized testing and certification, allowing turnaround time and costs to be minimized, thus helping ensure fast and efficient product launches onto major U.S. operator networks, as well as those of operators worldwide.

The services are complemented by Intertek’s extensive capabilities in cybersecurity, regulatory requirements and wireless in the Asia-Pacific region, which aid manufacturers in bringing comprehensive cellular-connected products to market.

Tony Walker, Vice President at Intertek, commented: “At Intertek, we strive to provide innovative Total Quality Assurance solutions to the connected world. 5G technology will, over the coming years, transform the way we live and work. We’re very proud to be able to support our customers’ development of this cutting-edge technology and help them to seize the opportunities this technological revolution creates for society.”
