Underwriters Laboratories Joins AT&T Mobile Broadband Accelerator

Underwriters Laboratories has been designated as an AT&T preferred PTCRB Lab for the AT&T Mobile Broadband Accelerator (MBA) Labs Program, which is now mandatory for any integrator wishing to use the network. UL said it will offer full access to AT&T's technical requirements, preventing duplication of testing procedures and ensuring that devices meet specific performance requirements. Eliminating redundancies allows for technical acceptance to be achieved up to 33 per cent quicker, meaning products are available to consumers and enterprises at a more rapid pace.

"UL has a wealth of experience in the cellular industry and we see many new and different applications being presented in greater numbers, particularly in the growing M2M area. The addition of the AT&T Mobile Broadband Accelerator (MBA) Labs Program allows us to add further value to UL's already well-established service, providing our customers with a faster route to market," stated Robert Graham, LTE Lab Manager for UL.
