Bluetooth Testing BITEs Into Mainland China Market
Centro de Tecnología de las Comunicaciones (CETECOM), Spain, a provider of wireless test solutions, has been chosen by the State Radio Monitoring Centre (SRMC) to supply Bluetooth conformance test solutions, BITE, in Beijing, China, thus offering Bluetooth Qualification Testing services to Chinese manufacturers.
As part of the contract, CETECOM will be delivering BITE RF and protocol conformance testers and providing full training and technical support to help the SRMC become an officially recognized BQTF (Bluetooth Qualification Test Facility), the first in Mainland China.
Andres Moreno, telecommunications director at CETECOM Spain, said, “This is excellent news for the Chinese industry and for the whole Bluetooth community. Now Bluetooth manufacturers will be able to test and qualify their devices in Mainland China, with local staff and state-of-the-art test facilities. We believe that China will become one of the most important Bluetooth countries in the world, and thus, an official BQTF is an important step.”
