In the IoT Validation Lab, Concept Reply supports customers over the entire life cycle of IoT connected products and IoT custom solutions: from field surveys and IoT advisory to IoT solution design, integration, validation and deployment. We can rely on R&D-experienced people who, along with state-of-the-art lab equipment, advises customers on IoT devices and network deployments to select the most effective connectivity solutions, validate and manage the entire process of the selected solution deployment.
Concept Reply’s IoT know-how covers the actual end-to-end perspective of the entire IoT ecosystem, considering all touch points and mastering the technologies from the physical layer to the back-end’s digital applications. Our services embrace different domains, such as Automotive, Telco, Manufacturing, Energy, Appliances, Logistics, and any domain oriented to promoting the IoT technological innovation.
In the IoT Validation Lab we support our customers in field sensorisation and digitalisation, connectivity issues, IoT audio applications and the product pre-certification prior to its commercial launch. In addition, we can assess the entire IoT solution from the environmental sustainability and energy efficiency viewpoints, predicting the deterioration of materials over time and the actual life of field components.
IoT devices are becoming pervasive in the environments in which we live and work. To communicate, these devices rely on a range of wireless technologies (BLE, Wi-Fi 6, 5G, NB-IoT, LoRa, etc...). Each node in an IoT ecosystem needs to be efficient in terms of RF transmission and reception considering its placement and surrounding environment, as well as to be connected and communicating as specified by the requirements within a proper network topology.
The IoT Connectivity & RF lab makes it possible to design antennas and wireless-connectivity interfaces, or optimising them in terms of both transmission and reception, in a controlled environment. Field problems are identified and appropriate actions are recommended to prevent or resolve them, thus enabling companies to optimise the resulting connectivity performance.

Audio is integrated in many IoT applications nowadays, including consumer goods, wearables and medical equipment, automotive units and entertainment systems, automation and industrial control applications. Designing and deploying a high-quality, uninterrupted audio subsystem can be a challenge, given that even tighter environmental constraints are being put in place by a variety of IoT-based devices for professional use.
The IoT Audio & Acoustics lab supports customers in enabling and designing, or optimising, audio and speech in a wide range of applications, mitigating the negative effect of acoustically critical environments thanks to our strong engineering skills and best-in-class equipment. We can run audio performance assessments and optimisation by pursuing a top-notch Quality of Service and the best resulting Quality of Experience.

The predictability of a product duration and correct functioning during its entire life cycle is definitely a key point to keep the CAPEX under control in your organisation. And indeed, not just that: assessing and improving the energy efficiency of IoT devices is key to promoting a sustainable deployment towards a greener economic development. The IoT Reliability & ALT lab makes it possible to perform a complete series of reliability tests, such as Accelerated Life Testing (ALT), or to evaluate the correct functioning of a product under the environmental-condition values it was designed for. These activities can be performed by inducing high levels of thermal and mechanical stress, dust intrusion and extensive UV-exposure on the equipment under test. In addition, we can conduct a study on the deterioration of materials and electronic components due to the natural placement in the ecosystem of use and test the durability of the battery by simulating the actual usage scenarios by means of advanced ageing methodologies.
