The center consists of four labs having the capacity to test and certify the network elements as per national and international standards, an ITI statement said.
"The state-of-art facility for telecom equipment testing will enable ITI in offering testing services to various equipment manufacturers. These labs will not only strengthen the telecom testing ecosystem in the country but also serve in enhancing the user experience through better quality services," Anuradha Mitra, Member-Finance, Department of Telecommunications said while inaugurating the labs.
Of the four labs, Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC)/ Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) and Safety Lab have been commissioned by the government, the statement said.
"The testing in these labs is carried out with the objective of ensuring that the equipment meets relevant international standards such that it is safe to use, the radio frequency emissions from it are within prescribed limits, it does not degrade the performance of the network to which it is connected, and it complies with the relevant national regulations," Agarwal added.
The commercial services for Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC)/ Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) testing, and safety testing for pre-compliance and certification will commence from March 2019. The other two labs, including one for telecom security testing, are expected to be operational from July 2019.
