FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


Washington Labs, American Certification Body and the Wireless Research Center sign Memorandum of Understanding.

 

Dr. Gerry Hayes, President and CEO of the Wireless Research Center and Mike Violette, CEO of Washington Laboratories and Director of ACB have signed a Memorandum to expand cooperation in wireless testing and measurements, during the attendance at the recent IEEE Wireless Wearables & Medical Interoperability Workshop (WAMI ’18) in Rockville, MD.

The Wireless Research Center (WRC), located in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, is a CTIA & Verizon authorized test laboratory and features design services for radio frequency and antenna design. One of the unique features that this cooperation offers is over-the-air testing (OTA) which is critical for measurements supporting the deployment of the Internet of Things (IoT) and devices that support Machine to Machine (M2M) connectivity. Mike says “I’m pleased to have access to these unique RF capabilities as we work to build out our wireless services. RF circuit analysis and design are key services. In addition, the WRC offers propagation analysis that will be useful for site planning and radio frequency coverage for network planners.”
