Quectel Wireless Solutions, the leading global supplier of Internet of Things (IoT) modules, today announced that the company has earned IATF 16949:2016 certification, a stringent quality
management system standard for the automotive sector.
The IATF 16949 standard was developed by the International Automotive Task Force (IATF) and the ISO technical committee. It defines the requirements of a quality management system for organizations in the automotive industry, and is widely recognized by leading automotive manufacturers and OEMs.
“Quectel has been serving a lot of Tier 1 customers and major Car OEMs in China, and is in good position to serve some global Car OEMs,” said Min Wang, Quectel’s Automotive Product Director.
“Gaining the IATF certification will bolster their confidence in Quectel and enable our automotive-grade AG35 module to further penetrate the auto segment.”
Quectel AG35 is an LTE category 4 module designed and manufactured in accordance with IATF 16949:2016 standards. It is targeted at the IoV (Internet of Vehicles) applications, such as fleet management, vehicle tracking, in-vehicle navigation system, vehicle remote monitoring, vehicle remote control, security monitoring and alarming, remote vehicle diagnostics and in-car entertainment.
Fred Fu, Quectel’s Quality Department Manager, said:
“Attaining IATF 16949 certification marks a major milestone for Quectel, which means that we have a complete quality assurance system throughout the whole procedure of wireless module design and manufacturing. Our non-automotive customers will also benefit from this certification which guarantees that we will
take an uncompromising stance on product quality and safety.”
Quectel has a professional team in charge of product life-cycle management, including vendor selection, R&D, manufacturing and technical support, to make sure that each and every module
labeled with “QUECTEL” can offer superior quality, according to Fred.
