The TCA 8200 Telecom Conformance Analyzer is an all-in-one compliance testing solution, according to world-wide regulatory & industry standards, for many types of telecom equipment ranging from phones to digital switches, PBXs and VoIP gateways.

In the past, approval of telecom equipment meant using a test lab with expert test engineers and numerous non-automated or semi-automated expensive test instruments and setups. Such a process usually took weeks. With the TCA 8200 you can complete tests and documentation required by the standards and agencies in a matter of hours, without a need for in-depth knowledge of the standards.

Due to liberalization of regulation processes in Europe, the USA and other countries, manufacturers can now perform in-house testing and declare compliance or apply for the approval of a regulatory agency.

Having an in-house compliance testing solution from the early design stages can significantly reduce time-to-market.

Test labs can also benefit from fast and cost-effective testing services for a broad range of interfaces and standards covered by the TCA 8200, its expandability and its extensive management features.
