VoLTE Deployments Call for SwissQual Expertise
Zuchwil, February, 2014 – With VoLTE on the threshold of entering the global market, assessing its end-to-end service quality has remained a grey zone in the telecom industry. Until now; because SwissQual took on that challenge and succeeded: the products of the Swiss specialist equipment supplier now support tailored pre-commercial devices to test VoLTE interoperability with legacy network technologies – a crucial step in assessing the success of VoLTE.
Having passed the VoLTE mobile-to-mobile proof-of-concept, operators and vendors have moved into a pre-commercial stage – a critical phase as voice services still account for a large share of their revenues. Maintaining and improving quality levels of such services is decisive to retain existing customers and to attract new ones in this highly competitive market. With the capabilities to support pre-commercial devices, the SwissQual product families Diversity and QualiPoc now add a new flavor against VoLTE end-to-end service quality optimization testing.
Thanks to agility and flexibility
SwissQual Chief Technology Officer Hanspeter Bobst: “Integrating new devices in our products has always been one of SwissQual’s key strengths. We have already gone through several VoLTE devices integration for Tier1 customers on both sides of the Atlantic. We are now ready, along with our customers, to enter this new VoLTE pre-commercial phase. Thanks to our agility and flexibility, SwissQual is the best positioned test and measurement vendor for integrating VoLTE devices.”
