(NASDAQ: NTSC) (NTS), a leading provider of testing and engineering services, announced today that its Silicon Valley facility will host the 2012 NEBS Environmental & EMC Seminar from June 25-28 at the NTS Silicon Valley facility in Newark, CA. The seminar is being held in partnership with Washington Labs Academy.

Among the highlights of the event will be feature presentations on NEBS testing, unique network requirements and recent industry developments by representatives from Verizon and AT&T, the safety and reliability of whose networks rely on NEBS standards. These specific presentations will begin at 1 p.m. June 26.

NEBS (Network Equipment Building Systems), which was developed by Bell Labs in the 1970s, is a set of safety, spatial and environmental guidelines applied to telecommunications network equipment. NEBS contains the key industry requirements for designing and building safe and reliable electronics for telecom network use.

NTS provides complete NEBS testing and extensive engineering services and program management to help clients understand and comply with the stringent NEBS standards. The focus is on reducing non-compliance during product development and minimizing delays in time-to-market deployment, said Gaylon Morris, General Manager of the NTS Silicon Valley facility.

"The NTS NEBS mark is recognized throughout the industry as a quality standard that ensures compliance and reliability," Morris said. "We have made NEBS testing a significant focus at our engineering laboratories and we work closely with the large telecom carriers to ensure that our testing is of the highest standards in the industry. We have been involved in NEBS testing for many years and we believe it will continue to be an important avenue of growth for NTS."
