As the first testing service provider, TÜV Rheinland can now offer its customers decisive advantages in the global market launch of their products in accordance with the 3GPP standard as part of its cooperation with Ericsson.

The basis for this is the Ericsson Device Hub (EDH) ecosystem, in which Ericsson and TÜV Rheinland offer manufacturers of wireless and telecommunications products all services related to the global market launch, thus making a decisive contribution to reducing the previous complexity of product launch and marketing on the part of product providers. The cooperation between the two companies on the EDH was agreed in October last year. Recently, the EDH has been activated and can be used by customers.

"This cooperation with Ericsson, as one of the largest mobile technology providers in the world, is an important further development of our previous wireless / IoT services for our company. This is especially true with regard to the mobile telecommunications industry and all related industries. This includes, for example, companies in the field of Connected Vehicles, Industry 4.0, and those dealing with the topic of Smart City. With reference to the new telecommunications standard 5G and the increasing spread of this technology in all areas of life and industries, this cooperation perfectly complements our wireless /IoT offering," says Sven Sellmann, regional sales manager europe, business stream products at TÜV Rheinland.

Leandro Montesdeoca-Henriquez, head of device and network testing, Ericsson: “We are pleased about the good cooperation with the certification experts from TüV Rheinland to bring together the best of two worlds. The Ericsson Device Hub is a one-stop shop for mobile broadband communication-based devices across the ecosystem. The ecosystem goes far beyond smartphones. It also includes devices for mission critical and for industry 4.00, as Ericsson will show at Hannover Messe next week.”
