that are enabled with JDSU’s LTE RF optimization application allow engineers to
perform real-life test scenarios as LTE networks are being trialed and
can collect, record, playback and transfer data from network trouble spots
discovered while in the field to the operations center for further analysis and
resolution. The JDSU
smartphone application gives wireless carriers a new, simpler and cost
effective way to gather critical network performance data needed to ensure a
quality end-user experience.
application automates and yields data reflecting performance of voice calls,
file transfer uploads, downloads, and browsing. Data is geo-located using the
phone’s global positioning system or a Bluetooth device.
is innovating with new ways to quickly, easily and cost-effectively extract and
analyze network data that is critical to delivering a quality wireless service
experience,” said Jerry Gentile, senior vice president in JDSU’s
Communications Test and Measurement business segment.
proliferation of thousands of smartphones and the ability to send and receive
data to and from any device have dramatically changed consumer communications
patterns, straining networks and introducing new complexities.
carriers now have the advantage to replicate these issues on the same type of
device their customers use, enabling them to measure the real end-user
experience and deploy a more competitive LTE network.
E6474A Drive Test platform is a flexible, customizable and scalable solution
for the optimization of wireless networks and data services. In addition to
data collection from mobile devices, the platform also includes an RF receiver
that can simultaneously measure and troubleshoot network RF coverage and
service delivery across all existing 2G, 3G and 4G technologies.
