How can IoTAS help you?

Since IoTAS was established in 2003 our focus has always been to offer the highest level of test services to our customers. We have experience testing a wide array of products ranging from chipsets, handsets, smart devices all the way to satellites. Each one of these projects differs to the next and has given IoTAS the ability to adapt to an ever changing test environment.


To help our customers meet their targets we overcome issues on a daily basis that could potentially impact their schedule. There are a number of areas which often require our support, these can include:

  • Travel restriction due to COVID – IoTAS are actively helping our customers by offering local solutions
  • Reliable Local Resource – IoTAS offer local resource in a number of locations to ensure that our customers have the same engineers for each project who are trained and experienced at field testing. This also allows IoTAS to offer turn on/off solutions without the need for additional travel costs.
  • Local Network Knowledge – IoTAS have experienced engineers in local locations who are actively testing on the network and are able to identify and advice on features which may or may not be supported. Understanding what infrastructure is available on our local networks gives our customers the option to test against a configuration of their preference.
  • Local SIMs – IoTAS have local SIMs for a number of operators from various countries, this helps our customers as not all Operators allow non local citizens to purchase SIMs.

If you require test support or simply require support resolving an ongoing issue please contact IoTAS on +44 (0)1223 810010 or email on information@iotas.co.uk
