Ever had your smartphone go dead on you? This could happen more and more as new Long-Term Evolution (LTE) networks cut over worldwide. To keep ahead of expected problems, test-equipment giant JDSU is adding Dyaptive Systems, a Vancouver, B.C.-based provider of capacity test solutions for 2G, 3G and 4G wireless networks, to its acquisition portfolio.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed, and some 40 Dyaptive employees will join JDSU’s ranks.

According to the buyer, “Dyaptive test solutions support network capacity planning and quality performance by emulating thousands of mobile devices precisely as consumers use them to post videos and photos, to stream TV shows and movies, and to video chat with friends.” JDSU believes this will complement its already large offering of wireless test tools.  

As an example of Dyaptive’s software-defined, radio-based solution that can manage network traffic, say there is a rock concert with thousands of wireless users clustered in a high concentration; many will want to stream video on their smart devices and others may want to send pictures. Using Dyaptive’s emulation testing, “a service provider could prioritize and manage such high-bandwidth traffic flow to maximize network efficiency while continuing to provide its customers with a high-quality experience,” JDSU says.   ?

Comments David Heard, president of JDSU’s Communications Test and Measurement business segment. “JDSU’s focus on mobile service assurance is a key element of our growth strategy as dependence on wireless devices at home, work and play continues to explode worldwide.”?
