Let's say you buy a gadget and it doesn't perform as well as it says. Where does that leave you? Frustrated and disappointed, vowing never to buy that company's products again.
Extend that to the IT sector and you have a very similar situation.
Quality of experience (QoE), or more precisely, quality of user experience, is something network operators place a great focus on, and that's why Epitiro's latest ipQ LTE test solution, which uses an app on an LTE (News - Alert) smartphone to measure network performance, is expected to be welcomed by them, noted company officials.
With a low per-unit cost, the ipQ LTE test solution is stated to be ideal for numerous smartphone "probe" deployment situations, or testing of special high-traffic events.
Walk testing is made easy with the optional powered backpack, while an in-vehicle harness conveniently houses smartphones for drive testing. For permanent and temporary installations in-building or outdoors, custom enclosures are available as well.
This test solution doesn't stop with merely helping measure the quality of experience from smartphones; it goes beyond that by reporting its findings in real time. This is immensely useful as it helps network operators determine key performance indicators that are relevant to 4G networks.
They get to know how good the networks actually are, how well they perform, how fast they are, how strong the RF signals are, how often the networks fail, extent of latency, and more importantly, allow operators to view the ipQ Dashboard with powerful tables, charts and graphs that provide vital QoE insight.
"The flexibility and affordability of the new ipQ LTE QoE Test Solution makes it compelling to operators who want to see network performance as its happening," said Gavin Johns, CEO at Epitiro. “And as it is app-based with an SaaS (News - Alert) platform, operators can get their testing up and running immediately."
Industry consultants and mobile network operators will have access to the trials of the ipQ performance monitoring solution with LTE testing capability.
End users want quality, the best for their money, ease of use and solid performance – and while being pampered by developers, they’ll not hesitate to shun operators that can’t compete.
Maybe the ipQ LTE test solution will provide the answer to operators’ woes.
