In TRC we believe that helping international companies to move and establish in Portugal and making strong partnerships with them will make us stronger to succeed in the international market.
There are a number of reasons to choose Portugal for a partnership: we have the required technologic capacity; a great quality-price ratio of Portuguese resources; high number of English speaking people providing good and fluid communication between teams; access to funding for good projects; Portugal has a privileged geographical location for both the transport of people and goods; Portuguese are known by being a friendly and quite adaptable type of people; we have very nice food with a variety of traditional dishes; nice mild weather, beaches and countryside.

What is stopping you to make this move?

NOS one of the three major telecom operators in Portugal who provides mobile and fixed telephony, cable television, satellite television and internet, renewed the existing reverse logistic contract with TRC for 3 additional years including the automatic test platform maintenance and support, repair service of CPEs and development of new tests for new equipment.
TRC automatic test platform is being used by NOS integrated in a reverse logistic environment. The life time of set top boxes, network terminals, business CPEs, IP phones and wifi extenders is being extending through testing, repairing and refurbishing processes.
We want to publicly thank NOS for the trust and commitment it has placed on our test platform and on our repairing services.

TRC at the forefront of industrial and worldwide electronic equipment repair standards.


The standard that will stimulate the reparability of electronic products is finally published.

The standard that will stimulate the reparability of electronic products is finally published.

In TRC we work to give new life to electronic equipment via our multi device test platform - TestRunE and our repair and refurbishing services. The EN45554 will make it easier defining parameters and methods relevant for assessing the ability to repair and reuse products. Just like the energy efficiency rating that is already in use for home appliances, this new European standard will be used to classify the reparability of electronic products Class A - Feasible with no tool or with a tool or set of tools supplied with the equipment or with the spare part or using basic tools, Class B - Feasible with product group specific tools, Class C - Feasible with other commercially available tools and Class D - Feasible with proprietary tools.

In TRC we contribute for sustainability.

A sustainable way of acting


A significant volume of customer premises equipment (CPE) return to the Telecom Operator’s warehouse for several reasons like services upgrades or maintenance operations with equipment...

A significant volume of customer premises equipment (CPE) return to the Telecom Operator’s warehouse for several reasons like services upgrades or maintenance operations with equipment replacement, customer churn or customer shutdown. This equipment can be reinjected in the network after being tested, refurbished and kitted with all accessories. In some cases, can also be repaired.

At the end of the day operators are saving investment providing a second life to these CPEs.

TRC own developed automatic test platform – TestRunE – Multi Device Test Platform - eliminates test subjectivity and speed up the test time of STBs, gateways, routers of several technologies like GPON, DOCSIS and DSL including WiFi functionalities. CPEs are subject to functional testing according with the manufacturer specifications. In the case of the STB testing, it simulates user interactions to ensure functionality and performance. The script-based architecture of the test platform enables the change of test plans and test parameters in a short time.

The TestRunE test tool was developed in order to be user friendly with straight forward operations so that the operator can be trained in a very short period and doesn’t need technical skills.

More than 2.700.000 tests have been performed in the TRC platforms and the majority of these equipment was reinjected in the network saving tons of CO2 emissions on the manufacturing and transport of new equipment and avoiding tons of electronic waste.

These reverse logistic processes are a sustainable way of acting to the telecom operators and also a great chance to save some money.
