Total Testing for LTE

With the launch of LTE services by multiple service providers across the world, telecom equipment manufacturers (TEMs) must deliver innovative, differentiated, and cost-competitive products in order to succeed in the wireless ecosystem of the future. We provide a comprehensive set of testing services to help TEMs deliver differentiated solutions across the entire LTE ecosystem. Backed by a team of more than 1,800 dedicated test engineers, our testing services are based on a strong foundation of domain expertise across access, core, and wireless LTE networks.
