FREMONT, Calif. and NEWARK, Calif., Jan. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- National Technical Systems, Inc. (NTS), a leading provider of testing and engineering services, announced today that NTS Silicon Valley is now completely equipped for comprehensive testing for NEBS compliance. NTS Silicon Valley, which consists of two facilities in Newark, CA and Fremont, CA, located less than one mile apart, has recently added NEBS fire testing and mixed flow gas testing, to complete the capabilities necessary to provide full service NEBS testing local to Silicon Valley.  Combined, the two facilities are almost 60,000 square feet of testing space focused on NEBS, Wireless, Commercial, and Medical device testing.

NEBS (Network Equipment Building Systems), developed by Bell Labs in the 1970s, is a set of safety, special and environmental guidelines applied to telecommunications network equipment. NEBS testing includes the key industry requirements for designing and building safe and reliable electronics for telecom network use.

Adding the new capabilities, along with enhanced program management services that help customers understand and comply with the stringent NEBS standards, minimizes potential delays in time-to-market deployment of telecommunications products, noted Gaylon Morris, General Manager of NTS Silicon Valley.

"We are pleased to announce that NTS Silicon Valley is now a 'one-stop shop' for NEBS testing for Telecommunications, Wireless, and Data Center Equipment Manufacturers," said Morris.
