Feature Testing – Porosity
IoTAS have developed a solution based around a commercially available automated field test and measurement platform. The testing compared the performance of a Device Under Test (DUT) against that of a competitor or reference devices. For each scenario of Porosity testing measurement data is gathered and analyzed to obtain the following date sets:
•Idle Mode Porosity Statistics
•Cell Reselection Divergences
•Cell Reselection Matches
•Ping-Pong Cell Reselections
SIM Card Hire
IoTAS SIM card hire is available for networks from EMIEA, APAC and USA. SIMs can be supplied in Micro or Nano Form Factor, Mini Form Factor may be available upon request. Service packages include Data only, Voice and Data, 3G/4G. SIM features including Call Barring, Call Forwarding, Call Waiting, Call Hold and Multiparty.
Feature Testing – Out of Service
The behavior of a cellular radio device in Out of Service state is largely a proprietary consideration by the manufacturer. 3GPP TS 24.008 sub-clause 188.8.131.52.2 states the following: ‘No cell can be selected. This state is entered after a first intensive search failed (state 19.7). Cells are searched at a low rhythm.’ The periodicity of searches, and the searched bands and RATs are therefore matters of optimisation. IoTAS have developed a solution based around a commercially available automated field test and measurement platform. IoTAS will investigate
- Transitions to Out of Service state
- Cell searches and RATs / bands searched
- Transitions to Out of Service state to Limited Service state (if applicable)
- Transitions to In Service state • Cell re-selections in limited service
