TL 9000 and ISO 9001 Certification Impact on Wireless Communication
With full company recertification to the TL 9000 and ISO 9001:2008 standards, wireless communication network operators once again can be sure that Aviat Networks has been fully qualified to supply them with the highest-quality products, services and solutions available to the global wireless solutions industry. In late 2011, Aviat Networks passed a full companywide audit for TL 9000 and ISO 9001:2008 industry standards for quality management. Awarded by Bureau Veritas Certification North America, the quality certifications are valid for three years. During this time, Aviat Networks will be making even more continuous improvements in quality for wireless communication network operators to use in their telecommunications solutions and wireless network services.
These certifications provide a guarantee to our customers that we can deliver on more than 90 telecommunications solutions-specific business methods and assurances—something you cannot get from a non-TL-certified vendor. In addition, we are the only specialist microwave solutions provider that is certified TL 9000 as well as one of only four TL 9000 certified microwave solutions providers overall. This is a major achievement for a company of Aviat Networks’ size.
Most importantly for mobile broadband solutions providers and other wireless communication providers TL 9000 is the telecommunications solutions industry’s “seal of good housekeeping.” It is a much more stringent standard to meet and a big step beyond ISO 9001:2008 certification, which can generically apply to a broad range of wireless technology as well as non-tech companies. An increasing number of customers worldwide now make TL 9000 and ISO 9001:2008 certification requirements for every wireless solution provider.
The TL 9000 quality management system was developed by QuEST Forum to meet the supply chain quality requirements of the global communications industry. Built on ISO 9001, it is designed for the communications industry. TL 9000’s purpose is to define unique communications quality system requirements for development, design, production, delivery and service. It specifies measurements for companies to help evaluate the effectiveness of quality improvement and implementation programs.
