CETECOM and Spirent Communications recently announced their collaboration that gears toward implementing a solution to implement SUPL 2.0 compliance for Verizon Wireless (News - Alert). The test solution is important in enabling mobile device Location Based Services (LBS) on the LTE networks. Spirent will offer the solution in the fourth quarter of 2012.
Testing SUPL2.0 compliance for LTE (News - Alert)-only and LTE multimode mobile phones ensures that devices can support next-generation location oriented applications together with the option of providing location information during E911 calls on LTE networks. To improve on quality certainty, CETECOM LTE device certification will add these tests to its catalogue of tests carried on LTE devices.
Since CETECOM is a highly reputable device certification laboratory for Verizon Wireless, Spirent’s (News - Alert) partnership with the company not only gives it the ability to face big LTE LBS testing for big North American carriers, but also ascertains that the company has had continued performance in location technology testing.
Commenting on the partnership, Thorsten Stabenau, director of corporate marketing and sales at CETECOM, said that the capability of LTE devices to support the futuristic location-based services and amplified requirements for E911 are major driving forces in LTE deployment. He said, “We view our collaboration with Spirent to be a critical step in achieving success on upcoming LTE deployments.”
CETECOM has a reputation as a neutral and experienced partner in the telecommunication and information technology field that offers a unique service portfolio. CETECOM covers the full life cycle of a mobile communications product, contributes to smooth running of the product and application while ensuring that they meet and surpass international standards.
Spirent owns systems that come in handy in the optimization of LTE mobile devices and chipset testing.
