SGS is expanding its CDMA wireless testing lab in San Diego with the addition of testing capabilities for handsets and smart phones designed to run on GSM and WCDMA networks.

When the new testing services launch in Q2 2011, SGS will have the first lab to provide certification tests for all cellular technologies under one roof. The expanded testing services will speed time to market for new GSM and WCDMA handsets and smartphones by eliminating the need for device manufacturers and wireless service providers to send new device models to multiple labs for certification. This will also enable our current customers to enjoy the same testing services benefits for GSM/WCDMA as they do with CDMA and EVDO. The lab will also continue to offer CDMA/EVDO test programs for CTIA CDMA Certification, Safe for Network, CDG Stage 1 and CCF Certification. LTE capability will be added in Q1 2011 to complete the portfolio for the San Diego laboratory.
