SUNNYVALE, Calif.--()--Spirent Communications, a leader in testing wireless networks, services and devices, announced today that its Location Technology Solution (LTS) has been validated for SUPL 2.0 testing. With this announcement, the threshold for Global Certification Forum (GCF) SUPL 2.0 tests is now reached, activating the mandate for device manufacturers around the world to certify all upcoming SUPL 2.0 enabled devices.

Spirent recognizes that SUPL 2.0 compliance is a key component of delivering next-generation Location-Based Services (LBS).
