Spirent Communications, the leader in networks, services and devices testing, Wednesday announced that SGS, a leading accredited laboratory for wireless testing and certification, has enhanced the testing capabilities it offers its customers by using the Spirent 8100 LTE solution with support for hVoLTE, Voice over IP (VoIP), Video Telephony, and Carrier Aggregation. These critical test areas assess the audio, video, signaling, and data throughput performance of mobile devices to ensure they meet the complex carrier requirements of next-generation LTE networks, said Spirent. 

According to Spirent, guaranteeing a superior Quality of Experience (QoE) is a critical factor in delivering services that compete with the increasingly popular Over-the-Top Voice and Video Services. As VoLTE rollouts continue, operators are working to provide a seamless interaction between the new LTE networks and existing circuit-switched networks. hVoLTE, or hybrid VoLTE, is a mode of operation that allows the two technologies to co-exist. Testing this coexistence on devices is critical in order to avoid VoLTE call drops during mobility scenarios. Spirent’s 8100 LTE solution addresses the heightened complexities in testing mobile device performance to ensure seamless interoperability across all these new technologies.

Michael Spitzer, Global Wireless Manager, SGS
SGS is focused on supporting major operators as they expand their networks to include these critical new technologies. Continuing our partnership with Spirent allows us to grow our portfolio for LTE device testing and be at the forefront of these next generation capabilities.

Saul Einbinder, VP of Marketing for Wireless, Spirent Communications
Partnering with leading authorized test labs is critical to Spirent’s success. We are pleased to remain an integral part of the SGS solution for assessing device performance on VoLTE networks and bolstering their portfolio of testing services.
