Integration of the Samsung Galaxy S8 smartphones into its comprehensive product portfolio for testing the cellular ecosystem, from RF to QoE has been announced by Rohde & Schwarz Mobile Network Testing (MNT). After the initial integration into R&S ROMES4 Drive Test Software earlier this year, Rohde & Schwarz MNT has completed the full integration of the new Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ smartphones into its complete portfolio of mobile network testing solutions.
With the full integration into its QualiPic, Benchmarker and Freerider products, R&S MNT enables operators and service providers to test and measure Quality of Experience (QoE) from a true end-user perspective, including video, voice, and apps.
Hanspeter Bobst, Vice President of R&S MNT and CEO of SwissQual AG, a Rohde & Schwarz company, says: “With the very fast and complete integration of the Galaxy S8, we’re offering our customers a competitive edge and support in testing and optimising forward-thinking features and technologies, including 4x4MIMO, from a true end-user perspective. Also, the integration perfectly complements our 4x4MIMO network scanner test solution for a comprehensive view of the RF environment. Offering both views, QoE and RF, is of great value to top tier operators who have been investing immensely in infrastructure to meet the growing need for more capacity, triggered by the data explosion and increased subscriber penetration.”
Initial shipments to priority customers are planned within the next few weeks. To satisfy the market’s high demand, R&S MNT continues to integrate the various models into its customised solutions for mobile network testing.
