"The Embodiment & Pinnacle of Standard for all IoT Related Test Solutions"
IoT enables us our very existence. It connects, bridges, facilitates all networking devices around us. Products such as mobile phones, refrigerators, air conditioners, TVs and coffee brewers have now become interoperable and connected due to the introduction of IoT. Hence, a jungle of possibilities and ideas that were not available to us prior this advancement is now at our finger tips. Take the cooperation between smart diagnostics & wireless communication, which allows for easier maintenance of central cooling systems and other devices by enabling maintenance teams to receive 24/7 diagnostic updates.. Moreover, it can be linked with other databases and environmental IoT devices; thus, making better use of temperature, humidity regulatory mechanisms to save on energy costs.
Our close relationship with various 1st tier associations, allows us to grasp the latest and first hand technological updates & information. With superior experts from different fields combined with decades of testing experience in multiple technologies and a vast product database, Allion can effectively shorten your product development process.
Key to a Successful Ecosystem
1. Surveillance & Security
IoT has much to offer in terms of convenience and mobility; however, there are many security issues waiting to be solved. For example, the monitors at home might not function when during emergencies; detection devices fail to notify occupants during a break in. At the same time databases, which facilitate the smooth running of an array of systems worldwide are prone attacks from hackers and malicious software. This vulnerability in security is what all companies try to protect against.
The interoperability & reliability of products should also be taken in to account. For instance users may be operating numerous functions from their devices simultaneously, such as one maybe using Wi-Fi to upload files to cloud storage providers and listen to music via their Bluetooth headsets while paying for coffee via NFC smart pay. Hence with this in mind system reliability becomes mandatory when multiple frameworks, applications and interfaces are at work.
Because different IoT devices have different applications, and used in different environments; stability, durability and reliability of the networking AP must be insured. Especially, systems operating and connected via the machines industrial internet of things (IIOT) framework must not disconnect unexpectedly; therefore, the selection of appropriate networking technology and the stability of the connection become paramount.
Because of the difference in local customs in various countries, combined with the different habits of individuals, smart devices should have customizable and localized features. Also user friendliness is vital to the success of the product.
One of the key elements of IoT is the ability to fine tune and customize according to the habits and expectations of the user. Not only should the information be clearly visible on the users’ mobile phone and mobile device, but also it should adhere to the aesthetic preferences of the user at the same time be able to enhance the users experience, while in sync and interoperable with various products in the users daily ecosystem. Thus allowing for a smarter, friendlier and happier user experience; greatly reducing the chance of recall and refund of the product.
The wide coverage of IoT requires data to be collected via many sensors. During the process of product development, customized operating systems and firmware are the keys which affect performance &quality of a product; hence, potential problems could appear in any stage. Allion not only provides basic testing and validation, but also we take it to the next level by providing in-depth analysis of potential risks and hazards that may accrue during a products life cycle.
In order to construct a functional and diverse IoT ecosystem; interoperability testing is essential to ensure the product functions well with Apps and hardware from other providers. Full interoperability testing not only enables products to become more competitive and diverse, but also promotes user satisfaction, greatly reducing the chance of recall or refunds.
In order to welcome the coming of the IoT age, both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi associations have released Bluetooth LE and Wi-Fi HaLow, which greatly reduces power consumption of their respected applicators. Other respected Associations have also released updated versions of their own standards in response to the potentials the IoT market may generate. Standard certification testing not only increases product competitiveness, but also insures the satisfaction and trust of our customers’ clients.
With the increased awareness of IoT enhancing people’s lives, building ecosystems which revolve around IoT has become the goal for many companies. Allion is deeply rooted in the certification & testing. We are actively engaged with multiple cross-sector collaborations and we are constantly striving to enhance our IoT testing capabilities. Allion will continue to keep you in sync with the most updated news and latest testing updates. Not only are we excited about what is to come, but we also look forward to constructing the tomorrow of IoT with you together.
