OmniAir has now expanded our global network of test laboratories with five laboratories located across North America, one in Europe, and now one in Asia!

“OmniAir is pleased that Bureau Veritas, a recognized global leader in wireless device testing, has joined our network of OmniAir Authorized Test Laboratories,” said Jason Conley, Executive Director of OmniAir Consortium. “Our newest OATL was authorized within three months of signing an MOU with ITS Korea to advance vehicle-to-everything (v2X) testing and certification.”
