    KPI analysis

    The success of location-based services is highly dependent on a positive user experience, which in turn depends on the performance of the enabling location technology. Spirent’s Location Technology solution offers the industry’s greatest breadth and depth of testing capabilities to ensure optimal A-GNSS (A-GPS and A-GLONASS) and hybrid positioning performance for GSM, UMTS and LTE devices.

    Capabilities include protocol verification, RF and Over-the-Air (OTA) performance, conformance/certification testing and a baseband option for chipset testing. Spirent’s global leadership in GNSS test, with the largest installed base, assures full interoperability with A-GNSS chipsets, since almost all were developed using Spirent test solutions.

    The Location Technology solution is a key test area of Spirent’s 8100 Mobile Device Test System, offering an open, scalable, multi-purpose system expandable beyond initial testing needs. It helps meet a range of high-value mobile device testing requirements. It makes use of highly capable components including an SR3420 Network Emulator for UMTS/GSM/GPRS, an E2010S Network Emulator for LTE, and industry-leading GNSS Satellite Simulators with network-grade protocol stacks for full control of the GNSS environment.

    BeNefITS • Reduce time to market – all industry-standard protocols and

    A-GNSS modes in a single, automated platform with advanced algorithms that minimize test execution time
