TÜViT and LS telcom sign cooperation agreement

TÜViT and LS telcom have signed a cooperation agreement which builds upon the successful collaboration the two companies have enjoyed for many years. With their portfolios, both companies have had a firm foothold in telecommunications for years now. The new partnership comes at just the right time, as the telecommunications sector is currently experiencing a lot of change. One reason for this is the corona pandemic, which highlights the importance of secure telecommunications infrastructures to ensure successful digitalization. On the other hand, the licenses for the new 5G mobile radio standard were auctioned off just last year. There is a growing number of industrial companies and municipal institutions that wish to operate their own 5G campus network in the future. The need for advice and services is therefore high. There are many questions that need to be answered, from frequency applications, network design and radio network planning to system selection and integration. Whatever the case, ICT security must be taken into account right from the start, whether at the component, system or organizational level.

The cooperation between TÜViT and LS telcom combines their complementary know-how in exactly these areas and will establish a powerful new solution provider in the telecommunications market. The partners are offering interested parties a demand-oriented, reliable and secure all-round package for the design, development and operation of campus networks. "Whether Internet of Things, Industry 4.0 or machine-to-machine communication, the planning of campus networks is a complex task. It requires technically and economically flawless network planning," explains Roland Götz, COO and member of the Executive Board of LS telcom AG. "Special attention must also be paid to secure data exchange and radio communication security. The radio infrastructure is connected to the company's internal IT network, and the entire network infrastructure must offer protection against eavesdropping, hacking and interference as well as extremely high network reliability", says Dirk Kretzschmar, Managing Director of TÜViT and member of the TÜV NORD GROUP Executive Board.

LS telcom is the world's leading provider of technology and consulting services for the efficient use of the radio frequency spectrum in all radio communication services. TÜViT is an expert in inspecting and certifying security in the ICT sector. The company also provides consulting services in the telecommunications and IT environment.
