Spirent Tests VoLTE in the Labs
SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Spirent Communications, a leader in testing wireless networks, services and devices, today announced the integration of its field-based Nomad HD solution with its CS8 Mobile Device Tester and 8100 Mobile Device Test System to assess VoLTE call performance and voice quality in the lab. Now carriers and mobile device suppliers can apply the same voice quality measurement system in live networks as well as in the lab to ensure subscriber satisfaction with VoLTE services.
The wireless industry is facing a major challenge in migrating voice services from circuit-switched legacy networks to all-IP LTE networks. Successful deployment of VoLTE will require voice quality and call performance to be as good as, and preferably better than, the services they are replacing. Spirent addresses this challenge by providing an integrated test solution capable of fully quantifying the end-user Quality of Experience (QoE) and testing with realistic scenarios prior to commercial deployment. The solution is backed by years of voice quality measurement expertise in live networks from Metrico, a market-leading company acquired by Spirent in 2012. This latest Spirent solution presents a unique, single-platform approach to measuring VoLTE and HD Voice quality (including latency and jitter), call setup time, call initiation rates, and call drop rates.
