And for the founders of 4ffCom, the integration is a key chapter in the company’s history: “We are absolutely delighted to be part of TÜV Rheinland now and to be able to contribute our many years of experience and expertise at this significant and global company. Together, we can give our customers a lot more added value,” said Andreas Renz, co-founder of 4ffCom and Director of Global Business Development and Innovation Wireless/Internet of Things at TÜV Rheinland.
Tailor-made test solutions
The rapid changes in the area of wireless technology are a challenge for companies. In particular, tailored CTE systems reduce the amount of time required from product development to market approval. This is why effective wireless test solutions for development and certification, as offered by fully automated testing systems, are becoming increasingly important. And by integrating 4ffCom, TÜV Rheinland is also strengthening its advisory capabilities in the field of wireless communication technologies. The demand for this is growing as an increasing number of objects – of all kinds – are connected to each other over the Internet using wireless networks. TÜV Rheinland has been helping to actively shape these trends for a number of years. In addition to testing and certifying wireless standards such as 2G, 3G, 4G, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, ZigBee or – in the future – 5G, other new technologies, e.g. for exchanging small data volumes over long distances with low energy consumption, are also being implemented.
Complete range of wireless communication technologies for various industries
The global network of wireless technologies is becoming increasingly close-knit as a result. “Here, we are the leading testing company many times over and we are still massively investing in capacities. The integration of 4ffCom is another milestone and an excellent addition to the services we offer. Our global “Wireless/IoT” team is also promoting the development of testing standards, for instance, as a member of the fast-growing LoRa Alliance,” explained TÜV Rheinland expert Kischka. As an established and diverse partner in the field of wireless networks, TÜV Rheinland can meet all of the wireless communication needs of its customers, regardless of the industry, globally and comprehensively – with consulting services, test solutions, market access analyses for new technologies, but also independent tests and certifications of existing ones.
