Bengaluru-based IT services major Wipro announced the start of a new digital product testing and compliance lab in Hyderabad as an extension to its Tarang Labs initiative.
Tarang Labs is the company’s 24X7 product testing and compliance facility with testing capabilities for electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), safety, environment, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, shock & vibration, noise, material, calibration and medical devices.
The new lab, which is spread over 10,000 sq ft, will offer integrated digital product testing services to ensure compliance with international standards for reliability, safety and security for customers across industries like automotive, defence, consumer electronics, aerospace, telecom, medical, energy and manufacturing.
“Our digital product compliance lab will allow us to meet product testing requirements for our customers at the pre-compliance and compliance stages,” Harmeet Chauhan, senior vice president and global head, industrial and engineering services, Wipro said. “Security, compliance and certification are a critical part of the IoT & Industry 4.0 value proposition and this lab will empower customers to meet their product launch requirements worldwide.”
Wipro also said that Tarang Labs offers consultancy services for standards compliance, certification testing, pre-certification testing and interoperability, and is the only lab in South East Asia qualified to certify Wi-Fi and Bluetooth devices.
In 2011, the company had partnered with Canadian testing and compliance firm CSA to accelerate the product development cycle in India.
During that time, the typical product development lifecycle took six to twelve weeks and the partnership was aimed at bringing down the time by at least 30%.
Wipro has also been working on emerging technologies to accelerate digital transformation for its customers.
Last month, the company said it was partnering with San Francisco-based artificial intelligence operations specialist Moogsoft to deliver better digital transformation services.
Wipro chairman Azim Premji recently said the company was making significant investments in digital, cloud, engineering services and cybersecurity.
Last week, the company reported a 12.58% rise in net profit for its first quarter ending June 30, 2019, buoyed by the demand in digital services.
