Test Platform at Symbian SmartPhone Show
Roaming Performance and Data Range of VoWi-Fi Handsets
ACTON, MA – October 21, 2008 – Azimuth Systems, Inc., a leading provider of wireless broadband test equipment and channel emulators for Wi-Fi, WiMAX, LTE and 2G/3G cellular technologies, today announced that the company will be showcasing its advanced Voice over Wi-Fi (VoWi-Fi) testing capabilities at the 10th annual Symbian Smartphone Show taking place in London from October 21-22, 2008.
Azimuth’s sophisticated VoWi-Fi test platform enables service providers, handset manufacturers and semiconductor vendors to perform accurate and repeatable voice quality, data range and roaming performance testing of VoWi-Fi handsets. The suite runs on Azimuth’s award-winning W-Series test platform and includes a set of comprehensive automated test scripts that simplify configuration and provide the flexibility to support a broad range of devices and scenarios.
The VoWi-Fi Handset Test Suite can be used to conduct handset range tests designed to evaluate voice quality as the distance between a handset and access point increases, handset roaming performance tests to measure roaming time and analyze protocol behavior as a handset roams between access points and handset data range testing that allows for the measurement of throughput.
“As handset manufacturers worldwide continue to embrace the use of Wi-Fi technology in smartphones, Azimuth has enjoyed tremendous success with its VoWi-Fi testing platform as it enables our customers to perform advanced handset tests that were previously difficult─ or even impossible,” said George Reed, vice president of marketing and product management at Azimuth Systems. “The ability to reduce the testing process from weeks to days to hours has also helped manufacturers to dramatically streamline the testing of VoWi-Fi phones, improving product quality and time-to-market delivery.”
