Product Consulting & Validations

In April 2020, the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) announced the opening of the 6GHz frequency. Since then, industry-leading brands have subsequently launched products that support Wi-Fi 6E, leading the world into the next chapter of wireless network and Internet of Things.

Manufacturers and developers currently face new challenges in product design. As the 6GHz frequency band is opened for higher-speed transmission, the TRP of devices must be adjusted to meet higher requirements in order to avoid mutual coexistence issues.  A new test approach is needed to validate products.

Allion now provides RFP consulting and certification test services for key wireless compliance & certification technologies such as Wi-Fi 7, BBF.398, Bluetooth®, LoRa, Wi-SUN, and more. Our test services include interoperability, QoE, and security testing, ensuring that your wireless devices such as APs, routers, mobile phones, and smart devices meet the requirements of your users.

RFP Consultancy Service and Lab-as-a-Service

Many networking brands are looking to create their own products lines, yet brands don’t always have the proper R&D resources or certification test setup to create the best product.

Allion’s RFP consultancy service helps brands filter and supervise ODMs/OEMs, simplifying the RFP process for brands. The Lab-as-a-Service can designate a dedicated engineering team, PM team, lab space, as well as test equipment to a brand, removing in-house operational and equipment expenses.

AWE TR-398 Test Solution

Due to differences in global requirements, tests for conformance, performance, and reliability are essential to the success of wireless network deployment. To achieve these tests, Allion has designed and built the AWE TR-398. It is designed for Wireless Access Point/Router ODMs and telecom service providers to validate their products with wireless performance test cases.

Smart Home and IoT Consultancy

Due to the complexity of smart home connectivity, building a smart home ecosystem has been a costly and convoluted task for smart ecosystem manufacturers, adopters, and implementers.
With over years of research, product design, and certification experience, Allion understands the pain points of vendors and can help to overcome these IoT challenges.

Smart Fitness Equipment Consultancy

In recent years, people have become aware of the importance of health and fitness. Be it at home or at the gym, health and fitness devices should be easy to use, reliable, and secure. In the past, Allion has assisted some of the top health and fitness equipment vendors in the US to ensure product quality. We offer the following solutions:

Component and Modules

The use of composite wireless technologies poses a great challenge for developers. Abundant factors need to be taken into consideration to avoid wireless signal interferences.

Allion offers a series of validation services for various components, such as antennas, chips, and modules. With our Signal Integrity Testing Center and RF Test Labs, we ensure that these components deliver consistent quality and stable wireless transmissions as they work in different environments and scenarios.
