Aug 24, 2011
Spirent 8100 System Commissioned at New SGS Laboratory
Sunnyvale, Calif. – August 24, 2011 — SGS Electrical and Electronics, a leading testing and certification company, has selected Spirent Communications’ mobile device testing equipment for its new Basking Ridge, New Jersey laboratory. The Basking Ridge site will provide substantial 3G/LTE device testing support in cooperation with a major wireless network operator. Spirent’s 8100 Mobile Device Test System will be used to test the performance of CDMA/EV-DO, LTE and multi-mode mobile devices intended for the US market.
“Spirent’s automated system gives us a wide range of testing on a single platform,” said Michael Spitzer, Global Wireless manager at SGS. “In addition to testing basic mobile device performance, we’ll use the system to test performance in several specific areas. This testing helps the operator ensure high quality, trouble-free cellular service.”
The Spirent 8100 test solution implements radio frequency (RF) performance testing, a wide range of data performance testing, and Inter-Radio-Access-Technology (Inter-RAT) testing, which verifies performance as the mobile device user moves between LTE and 3G service areas. The platform can be expanded to test performance of other device features such as integrated location technology, including GPS.
“It’s always gratifying to see long-term customers coming back to us for solutions,” said Hesham ElHamahmy, vice president of product marketing at Spirent. “We have been working with SGS since they opened a lab in San Diego many years ago. We look forward to supporting SGS’ continued growth and success.”
