Newsletter #20 – June 2019
Spotlight: VoWiFi Testing
In our last Newsletter we discussed IMS Testing in relation to VoLTE and VoWiFi certification testing. We are now seeing a greater interest in VoWiFi testing and scenario validation trials, which is to be expected as more and more mobile phones are built to support this service.
The testing of live IOP scenarios, device interaction and general ‘intuitiveness’ now form part of an extended set of tests that IoTAS can offer OEM/Developers and Operators.

IoT devices: Robustness, Reliability & Performance – It’s What Really Matters
Device certification for correctly specified functionality is without doubt a key element to the success of any device and the test requirements applied are developed from the relevant Standards Organisations, such as the 3GPP, ETSI, TIA, etc. test specifications.
However, whilst these tests, often rigorous and thorough, will adequately ensure that the device conforms to standardised and accepted international testing stipulations they may not fully address three core factors of actual, practical usage:
IoTAS have developed a range of additional tests to ensure that IoT devices (Cat M1 / NB IoT / 2G) operate in the challenging real world environment; which is critical for optimal performance.
These testing scenarios can be tailored to customers particular requirements but we are happy to lead these planning discussions, based upon our experiences in the field (disrupting elements are commonly signal interference, background noise and path loses).

Global Solutions – Local Coverage
Our approach to live network testing is unique in the Industry. We believe our local resource solutions, in strategic global locations, allow us to remove the usual barriers to maintaining global field test support for device and application testing. The benefits to our customers include:
- Local language and cultural support
- Local expertise and network knowledge
- Flexible testing solutions
- An ability to mobilise at short notice
To this end IoTAS have recently added two additional locations where we can offer localised support:
Working with Approved Agents and trusted Partners, IoTAS continue to grow global support network and offer, in conjunction with our own qualified engineers, the reassurance that your test requirements will answered both professionally and to the highest quality standards.

Upcoming Global Certification Forum Events
As the UK’s only independent GCF Recognised Test Organisation (RTO) and Assessment Capable Entity (ACE) IoTAS will be attending two upcoming GCF events:
- The GCF Steering Group SG#79 Meeting in Paris – 25th June 2019
- The GCF Conformance Agreement & Field Trial Agreement Group (CAG#59 & FTAG#56) Meetings in Málaga – 16th-18th July 2019
IoTAS are actively involved in discussions within the GCF in regard to GCF Dual SIM Field Trial Testing and also GCF Chip Set Approvals.
The GCF is an independent certification scheme for mobile phones and wireless devices that are based on 3GPP standards.
