Type Approval

Telecomm manufactures are always under extreme pressure to supply ever-diversifying products, working at faster rates, but at lower costs, and shorter delivery times.

Pressures have also changed recently as the industry has gone through boom years to the present time with next to no turn over.

Type Approval, covers an up front phase as new equipment is considered for any network. No matter how much information a supplier provides, testing the equipment in isolation is the only way to guarantee how it operates. This ensures that both parties have interpreted the vast number of official standards that equipment must conform to.

It is common to have the supplier directly involved at this stage ensuring that both understand each others systems and requirements.
