Spirent Communications (News - Alert) has been talking about next-generation mobile voice systems, video calling and battery life analytics for years. Well, this is the end of the empty talk: the company is taking action with making availability of its VoLTE Launch Readiness solution.
Spirent, a provider of analytics services and systems for improving the user experience on mobile devices, unveiled a complete solution that addresses the most critical challenge operators launching VoLTE voice and video calling services face: ensuring new VoLTE devices and services will deliver an experience as good or better than legacy and over-the-top (OTT) services.
VoLTE, or voice over LTE (News - Alert), will offer quicker call setup, make voice conversations sound better and let users jump into a video chat just by tapping a button on the screen.
But what is so great about the VoLTE Launch Readiness solution? It offers the user experience analytics needed to make business-critical decisions about launching and marketing new devices and services. The solution offers a statistically robust methodology for measuring and analyzing VoLTE, OTT and legacy services based on mobile-to-mobile calls in live networks. The solution that includes Fit4Launch Programs, Analytics Systems, and Insights is the industry’s global trusted-partner for evaluating and improving the user experience of devices and service.
Speaking more about new launch, Des Owens, general manager of service experience at Spirent, said in a statement, “Our new VoLTE Launch Readiness solution provides the answers they need, by allowing them to evaluate the user experience of new VoLTE devices and services and compare it with legacy and OTT service experience. We collaborated with Signals Research Group on their recent VoLTE user experience study in a live US network, which showed that VoLTE has the potential to outperform both legacy circuit-switched and OTT voice services in real-world implementations.”
The VoLTE Launch Readiness solution allows evaluation of a wide range of experience metrics including call setup time, connection success rate, speech quality, conversational speech delay, observed frame rate, frozen and impaired frames, a/v sync and more.
