RESTON, Va. --(Business Wire)--
Ascom (News - Alert) Network Testing, a leader in broadband mobile network testing
technology, today announced a new release of its industry-leading drive
test solution, TEMS Investigation 15.2, designed for testing with iPhone (News - Alert).
Drive testing enables mobile operators to validate their network service
quality by equipping vehicles with computers, devices and modems that
capture network performance data while driving specified coverage
routes. Mobile operators can now use the industry's most widely used
drive testing technology to measure network services using iPhone to
determine precisely what customers are experiencing.
Ascom's TEMS Investigation 15.2 is now the only Radio Access Network
(RAN) testing product that measures network performance from the iPhone
user perspective, providing mobile network operators with critical data
that can be used to optimize network performance. With this technology,
mobile network operators will know that their TEMS Investigation
iPhone-based testing units will support iOS7 as well as future updates.
"Ascom is pleased to deliver a broadband wireless testing solution to
mobile network operators. We believe that this solution will provide
great benefits for operators, and ultimately greater benefits for iPhone
users, as networks are further optimized for broadband performance,"
said Rikard Lundqvist (News - Alert), General Manager, Ascom Network Testing. "We are
proud to now offer an integrated solution for iPhone that meets our
standard of offering products that are supported by our technology
partners," he said.
"This is a significant step forward for mobile network operators who
really need an iPhone-supported testing solution," said Olga Yashkova,
Program Manager, Communications Test & Measurement Practice at Frot &
Sullivan. "With operators betting their future on providing an optimal
Customer Experience, it is critical to have reliable network testing
tools that address premium usage subscribers, especially iPhone users,"
Ascom customers can also leverage TEMS™ Discovery, Ascom's network
analytics platform, to mine data collected from iPhone TEMS
Investigation tests in order to analyze and troubleshoot network
performance issues. The system produces actionable reports in a
management dashboard that enable network managers to quickly assess a
wide range of quality of service metrics.

partners. Mobile operators can visit www.ascom.com/nt
