The proliferation of thousands of smartphones coupled with the ability to send and receive data to and from any device has changed consumer communications patterns dramatically, straining networks and introducing new complexities. Wireless carriers now can replicate these issues on the same type of devices their customers use, enabling them to measure the real end-user experience and to deploy a more competitive LTE network.

JDSU’s drive-test solution now offers wireless carriers a LTE network-analysis tool accessible through an Android smartphone, making LTE RF service verification and troubleshooting easier while reportedly reducing network-management costs.

Smartphones enabled with JDSU’s LTE RF optimization app allow engineers to perform real-life test scenarios as LTE networks are being trialed and established. Engineers can collect, record, play back and transfer data from network trouble spots discovered in the field to the operations center for further analysis and resolution.

The application also automates and yields data reflecting performance of voice calls, file transfer uploads, downloads and browsing. Data is geo-located using the phone’s GPS or a Bluetooth device.
