Special Update: Mobile Network Operator (MNO) Approvals

New service: Latin American (LATAM) Approvals

 As part of the IoTAS MNO Approvals service offering we are able to support requests for:

* Local resource available (all other locations serviced by IoTAS (LATAM) engineering support)

(Additional information on Network Operator Approvals supported in LATAM countries will continue to be added as our Carrier information and coverage increases.)

Obtaining formal approval for terminal devices to be accepted on Mobile Network infrastructures is never straight forward. Pre-testing is key to the development process prior to launch but approvals can be difficult to achieve or even instigate.

As MNOs own and control the delivery of mobile services including radio spectrum, infrastructure, billing, CS, etc., anyone wishing to achieve approval must demonstrate a fully compliant, compatible and quality assured device.

IoTAS is ideally positioned to assist OEMs (Fully Certified and Open Market suppliers), module and chipset manufacturers with:

  • Full Pre-testing to an approved MNO specification
  • Consultancy and direct support of Operator Approval submissions
  • Commercial introductions, depending upon location

In addition IoTAS can offer the full suite of Live Network Testing services including:

  • Functional testing (Static/Mobility)
  • Stability testing (KPI)
  • IMS testing
  • Regression testing
