SGS has entered into a commercial partnership with Allion Labs, a renowned artificial intelligence of things (AIoT) testing service provider, to support the USA’s growing diversity of technology companies working within the connectivity sector and expanded its ISO/IEC 17025 certified test lab network in Asia.
The partnership and expansion of one stop test solutions to Asia positions the Allion USA-SGS lab at the heart of the world’s major manufacturing hub. Building on the success of the companies’ partnership in the automotive sector, this development expands its scope to support the server, IT, audio-visual and networking industries.
By combining industry insight, testing expertise and laboratory resources, the partnership’s one-stop test solutions optimize the operation of products and software. Through the Quality Requirement Specification (QRS) Program, clients gain assistance in quality control with the setting of product specification and performance standards for Original Design Manufacturers (ODMs) to follow. The process enables the customization of plans at all points of the supply chain, from product development to mass production.
Frankie Ng, CEO of SGS said: “Our partnership with Allion, which began in 2019, supports SGS’s strategic evolution by aligning our global network more closely to the key TIC connectivity megatrend and customer demand, supporting our purpose to enable a better, safer and more interconnected world.
“In our mission to improve product quality and set industry standards, we provide our tech clients with practical solutions across the different product stages. Ultimately, Allion USA-SGS can help clients grow their markets, particularly across the 5G technology and IoT devices sector, by accelerating product time to launch.”
Summer Chien, CEO of Allion said: “We understand how product development is filled with difficult decisions, especially for the choice of key component and appropriate suppliers. Our ‘one-stop test solutions’ ensure we are best placed to simplify that process for our clients.
“Whether seeking rigorous component validations, software interoperability tests, or database storage solutions, we can help clients establish sophisticated applications with reliability, scalability, and flexibility.”
The Allion laboratory is the only test lab in Asia that has executed 1 million test projects for over 30 compliance and certification programs, including USB, HDMI, Thunderbolt, PCIe, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth.
This partnership forms a key element of SGS’s strategy to investing in the Connectivity business to drive business growth and support the fast evolution of consumer products in an increasingly connected world.
