It was the first time we had actually exhibited and with over 50 meetings arranged and completed across the 4 days we maximised the potential of arguably the single most prestigious event in the Mobile telephony marketplace.We would like to thank all our meeting guests, visitors to the stand and the UK Department for International Trade and Tradefair for making it one of our highlights of the 2018 (and we’re only a quarter of the way through!).It was a resounding success and we hope to repeat this next year at MWC 2019 so start planning your trip now.
Thank you for your support – IoTAS MWC Team 2018

Compliance And Regulatory Services
Mandatory conformity certification, or conformance is a process through which a Product passes ensuring that is has passed performance and quality assurance tests as well as complying to the specific qualification criteria that is stipulated in applicable regulations and “certification schemes”.
IoTAS have successfully managed numerous RED approval processes and can offer full consultation delivery programming for customers wishing to achieve this regulation standard, including harmonisation management. We would also advise that if you are intending to place a new radio enabled product on the market, continuing to market an existing radio product, installing a radio module into your product, or re-branding someone else’s radio product then you should be adhering to Radio Equipment Directive.
Please read more here and get in touch if you need help with achieving product compliance.
VoLTE Testing Solutions Proving Popular
The Voice over LTE testing solutions, previously mentioned in Newsletter #14, have been received well within our market place. Compliance seems to be a bit of a theme right now and our suite of tests will ensure that your product complies with all the criteria outlined by the Global Certification Forum (GCF).
The thoroughness of the IoTAS developed VoLTE test plans, going beyond the scope of the GCF, offer customers confidence that their devices function as designed. Examples of the areas these additional tests cover are:
- MO /MT IMS calls
- Inter-working with other IMS CNs, Circuit-switched CNs, ISDN and PSTN
- Early Media alternative ringback tone and announcements
- Emergency calls (live network – UK and Australia only)
- VoLTE -> UMTS/GSM SRVCC handovers
- VoLTE <-> CS mobility
- VoLTE <-> VoWiFi handovers
- VoWiFi <-> CS mobility
- VoWiFi Access Point handling
- Supplementary services using XCAP and SIP
Upon capturing the protocol and IMS logs the data will be analysed for test case validation, defects and performance. IoTAS engineers are ready to meet your testing needs. For more information on our VoLTE services click here.
