This article informs that Glasgow's Wireless Innovation Centre has expanded its test and demonstration lab, offering access to RFID, wireless modem technology and mobile phone networks. Launched last February, the Centre grants free access to its wireless systems and test networks, but only to Scottish companies. The facility has partnered with multiple companies including Orange, O2, T-Mobile, Microsoft, Agilent and Anritsu. Products developed by companies can be tested against the standard networks, using the supplied test equipment.
