Spirent and CETECOM Announce Collaboration on New LTE LBS Device Conformance Tests.

SUPL 2.0 Compliance Testing Now Available for LTE-Enabled Mobile Phones

SUNNYVALE, Calif. & ESSEN, Germany -- Spirent Communications and CETECOM announced today their collaboration to implement a solution that tests SUPL 2.0 compliance for Verizon Wireless. This test solution is a key enabler for mobile device Location Based Services (LBS) on LTE networks and will be offered by Spirent, a leader in testing wireless networks, services and devices, in the fourth quarter of 2012.

By testing SUPL 2.0 compliance for both LTE-only and LTE multi-mode mobile phones, the solution will ensure devices are capable of supporting next-generation location-enabled applications and providing location information during E911 emergency call sessions on LTE networks. CETECOM, an industry-leading laboratory for LTE device certification, will add these tests to their repertoire of test services for LTE devices.

"CETECOM is a highly regarded device acceptance laboratory for Verizon Wireless," said Spirent vice-president Hesham ElHamahmy. "Extending our partnership with CETECOM not only equips us with the ability to address critical LTE LBS testing for major North American carriers but affirms our continued leadership in location technology testing."

"The ability for LTE devices to support the next-generation location-based services and increased requirements for E911 is a driving force in LTE deployment," said Thorsten Stabenau, Director Corporate Marketing & Sales, CETECOM. "We view our collaboration with Spirent to be a critical step in achieving success on upcoming LTE deployments."
