SGS Selects Spirent to Expand Testing Capabilities for VoLTE E911

Spirent Communications announced that test lab SGS has selected its 8100 Location Technology Solution to expand its AGPS Over-The-Air (OTA) testing capabilities. This is the second Spirent AGPS OTA test solution selected by SGS to support the increased need and growing demand for AGPS OTA testing of mobile devices. SGS and Spirent understand that with large-scale VoLTE rollouts under way and the critical importance of E911, the demand for AGPS OTA testing is rapidly increasing and they have collaborated to deliver the most comprehensive and accessible OTA test capabilities to meet the requirements of wireless carriers. Performed in a controlled radiated environment (i.e. an anechoic chamber), OTA testing provides a complete performance picture, taking into account all interaction factors between the mobile device and the rest of the wireless environment. Leading wireless operators recognize the importance of OTA testing methodology and its critical role in enabling accurate location-based services (LBS) and fulfilling emergency service requirements (VoLTE E911).

Spirent Communications Plc. Enhances Location Availability for VoLTE E911 Calls Indoors

Spirent Communications plc announced enhancements that will help improve location accuracy for E911 calls indoors. The additional test capabilities on Spirent's 8100 Location Technology Solution (LTS) enable operators to deliver optimal location performance to support VoLTE E911 calling and to understand how LTE positioning technologies such as OTDOA (Observed Time Difference of Arrival) can help meet the recently proposed FCC regulations for E911 indoors. LTE brings improved location accuracy with new positioning technologies and their integration using hybrid techniques. Although established technologies such as A-GNSS (A-GPS and A-GLONASS) provides performance in environments with a clear view of the sky, performance is often poor indoors, where detection of satellite signals is limited. In LTE, current standards support Observed Time Difference of Arrival (OTDOA), an advanced cellular positioning technology that can augment A-GNSS and provide a more accurate location fix for indoor scenarios.
