Rohde & Schwarz Announces New Relationship


Rohde and Schwarz, a leading supplier of solutions in the fields of test and measurement, has formed a relationship with Tektronix Service Solutions to offer customers in North America a single source for calibration services. This represents the first time that two major test and measurement manufacturers have joined forces to provide customers with a comprehensive solution for all their calibration needs.

No longer do companies using test, measurement, and control instrumentation have the resources to manage multiple calibration vendors, nor do they have spare high-end products to enable sending units offsite without causing downtime. Meanwhile, skipping calibration introduces risk into the measurement and validation process. With this relationship Rohde & Schwarz is now able to offer customers in the United States and Canada a single-source calibration solution while Tektronix Service Solutions extends its capabilities and is now able to offer customers calibration services for high-end communications test equipment.

“Our customers have been asking for a trusted single-source solution for calibrating their entire set of communications test and other instrumentation to help reduce downtime,” says Scott Bausback, president and CEO of Rohde & Schwarz, Inc. “By partnering with Tektronix Service Solutions we are able to confidently offer our customers a truly comprehensive set of high-quality calibration capabilities that will help them bring new technologies to market in less time.”

“When capital budgets and deadlines are tight, customers need the most complete and highest quality calibration and support solution available,” according to Paul Caragher, president of Tektronix Service Solutions. “By partnering with Rohde & Schwarz we are combining the depth of knowledge that only two OEMs can bring together with the breadth of capability Tektronix Service Solutions offers, giving customers the best overall value and highest quality calibration solution on the market.”
