Accreditation Includes BluFlux’ Test Services for 2G, 3G, 4G, LTE and more
BluFlux RF Technologies (“BluFlux”), a provider of RF engineering, antenna design and over-the-air (OTA) testing, today announced that its testing lab has received accreditation by the American Association of Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA), the recognized national organization in laboratory testing.
A2LA has accredited BluFlux as an ISO/IEC 17025 electrical testing laboratory (Certification Number 3795.01), specifically for the CTIA Over-the-Air (OTA) Test plan version 3.4. This accreditation is a necessary milestone for BluFlux to become a CTIA Authorized Test Lab (CATL) for OTA testing.
The comprehensive audit found BluFlux’ processes, operations, and capabilities surpassed A2LA’s accreditation standards. BluFlux now offers A2LA-accredited testing and certification for GSM (2G); GPRS (2.5G); EGPRS (2.5G); UMTS (W-CDMA) (3G); CDMA (3G); CDMA 1xEV-DO (3.9G), 4G; and LTE, as well as laptop and tablet testing.
“The A2LA accreditation is an important checkpoint for our OTA testing lab,” said Ben Wilmhoff, president and founder of BluFlux. “I’m very proud of our team for their professionalism and role in creating BluFlux’ proven testing operation. With the A2LA accreditation, we can now better support our growing list of customers who look to BluFlux as a strategic partner to accelerate the process of getting their products designed, tested and to market.”
BluFlux helps U.S. and international companies with antenna design, RF engineering and OTA testing, as well as the design and prototyping of ultra-wideband (UWB) devices. The company also rents its now A2LA-accredited OTA testing chamber and welcomes client engineers on-site to test their devices with support and consultation from BluFlux engineers, if desired.
