AT4 wireless, Inc, located in Herndon, VA has expanded its ISO 17025 scope to incorporate 3GPP Conformance Testing capabilities for LTE User Equipment. This new ISO accredited test scope for LTE covers E-UTRAN radio access as well as the EPC Network layers. Under this accreditation, AT4 wireless, Inc, is offering full RF, RRM, Protocol and all relevant accredited testing services in accordance with 3GPP LTE tests, selected by the global certification programs of GCF/PTCRB.

"Our goal is to become the LTE reference test lab for the North American cellular market and this accreditation is one of the initial milestones within our objective. Because LTE will require backwards compatibility to legacy cellular technologies (CDMA and GSM/UMTS), we have designed an LTE program which includes increasing our certification capabilities and upgrading our current 2G/3G RF/RRM test capabilities to include the Protocol layer testing. Our world class cellular communications lab facility is investing in the North American LTE industry and is ready to provide best in class service to our clients. We now have a comprehensive set of test equipment and offerings accompanied by a fully trained staff to facilitate our client's 3GPP technology testing" said Bryan Mikesh, Chief Operating Officer at AT4 wireless, Inc.
