Reston, VA – 25 November, 2015- Ascom Network Testing announced today it had won the award for Best LTE Core Network Product at the recently concluded LTE North America 2015 conference in Dallas, Texas. The company’s winning entry centered around TEMS™ Monitor Master, its offering for performing active testing and monitoring of any IMS-based service being deployed in the core network.
Finalists’ applications were reviewed by an exclusive panel of leading experts from Senza Fili Consulting, iGR Research, Signals Research Group and Wireless 20/20, and winners were unveiled during a ceremony hosted by Vicky Livingston, Head of Communications and Analyst Relations for 4G Americas.
“Traditional solutions to monitor the IMS core revolve around passive monitoring systems which can take months to become operational and do not provide the most effective monitoring of service performance. Using Ascom’s cloud-based solution operators are able to perform end-to-end testing and monitoring through device simulation and virtualized handsets installed at different points in the network, which can be deployed in a matter of days,” remarked James Morrison, VP Product and Marketing. “Because of the virtualized nature of the handsets, tests can be done even before commercial handsets are available, resulting in significant time savings in the pre-launch phase so operators can shorten the time to market for new services and quickly pinpoint issues arising during service operation. The solution is particularly effective at isolating interconnectivity and interoperability issues in the network, which are a major source of the challenges operators face with IMS-based services such as Voice over LTE/WiFi and RCS.”
TEMS Monitor Master enables operators to perform end-to-end active testing and to monitor the subscriber experience, using either real commercial handsets or simulated devices. It supports testing and monitoring of all VoLTE pre- and post-launch activities such as load, functional, regression and user acceptance; 24/7 and is managed from a central location.
