It should come as no surprise that LTE (News - Alert) network connectivity is quickly gaining prominence within the mobile industry. Take the highly anticipated iPhone 5, released last fall in which Apple sold five million within the first three days alone. Among the newest features to be stocked in the latest member of the company’s prestigious iPhone family was its capacity to support LTE network connectivity, which research and data site comScore (News - Alert) Data Mine calls “perhaps one of the most heavily-anticipated improvements to the device and one that represents a significant upgrade to the mobile Web experience.”
Experience – we keep hearing that word a lot, don’t we? It’s all about the user experience, and it seems users are embracing the ones they’ve had so far, as comScore continues to report that LTE adoption has gown nearly tenfold in the past year alone. “This growth may reflect both that device manufacturers increasingly see the value of supporting LTE and that mobile users have a willingness to pay to support demand for faster mobile media consumption,” the site continues in a post last September.
Large investments continue to be made worldwide for LTE network deployments, but what do you do when it comes to actively testing such things as Quality of Service (QoS)? This can be a bit tricky, as you need a complete, robust and reliable solution to be able to do so.
Enter iQsim, a provider of SIM server technology, whose R400 Series Mobile Robot serves as a complete solution for testing QoS on an LTE/4G network. Providing an unattended and automated test execution platform in a mobile testing ecosystem, this solution is flexible enough to be used in several different applications and testing scenarios, such as QoS and Quality of Experience (QoE), end-to-end service testing, and roaming and revenue assurance.
Additionally, its advanced functionalities and comprehensive scripting capabilities easily yet efficiently determine and control the different aspects of the robot’s behavior. iQsim’s Mobile Robot is a modular device that supports GSM and UMTS channels from a minimum of eight simultaneous channels to a maximum of 16 via four channel increments, the company explains on its website.
Bottom line: iQsim’s Mobile Robot provides the maximum flexibility needed by allowing the individual customization of its functionalities to meet specific customer needs, therefore fulfilling the customer experience.
To find out more about iQsim, visit the company at ITEXPO Miami 2013, taking place Jan. 29- Feb 1 in Miami, Florida. Visit iQsim in booth #731. For more information on ITEXPO (News - Alert) Miami 2013, click here.

- SIM Management for Mobile Termination
To offer better rates on local mobile networks, Internet Telephony Service Providers (ITSPs) have to optimize Call Termination costs and maximize SIM cards usage.
- SIM Management for M2M Platform Validation
The M2M solutions deployment is very complex and difficult to test and validate in the lab. Gateways and probes on-site deployment are subject to numerous constraints such as GSM 3G coverage, unexpected multi-operator roaming, international roaming, tariff and service restrictions.
- SIM Management for Mobile Testing
In order for a Mobile Network Operator to be successful, reduce churn and increase customer loyalty, the need to shift from testing network to perform a complete “end to end” QoS Testing has become obvious.
