Device and Network Testing


As the device ecosystem is growing and the number of IT systems and applications is growing rapidly too, a number of challenges arise for players in the ecosystem. The massive growth of devices is driving up the cost for all parties and finding a way to keep cost under control is on top of everyones mind. The complexity of IT systems is also growing at a steady pace and the number of integration points with it. These factors, combined with a pressure on service providers and system vendors to reduce lead times for new systems and services are putting new demands on automation of processes and tools for securing the quality and stability of end user services and systems.

Ericsson sees three main drivers for high quality end user services.

The behaviour of the application is key to the user experience and is the "store front" of the...

GSMA Foundry 5G Drone Testing with Ericsson

The GSMA Foundry program and Ericsson have performed an assessment of a variety network KPIs including signal strength, downlink, uplink, interference, and video performance with drone tests performed at 3 altitudes up to 400 ft.
Over sixty-five drone flights were conducted, covering over 16 hours of total flying time, over a two-week period during daytime in good weather conditions in residential, commercial, and suburban areas in both flat and hilly terrains. Two geographic areas were covered in two different states in the USA and each area spanned a radius of over half mile.
