RESTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ASCOM Network Testing, the leading provider of test solutions for ensuring network and service quality, today announced support for the Samsung Galaxy S6 in Ascom’s flagship network test and optimization product, TEMS™ Investigation. Support for the device was implemented within a week of Samsung’s launch of the Galaxy S6 during Mobile World Congress 2015, where the device received the GSMA’s award for “Best New Handset, Tablet or Device”, and has been verified in use by a European Tier 1 operator.
The new Galaxy S6 device offers LTE Cat 6 testing capabilities (300/50 Mbit/s) and additional LTE and Carrier Aggregation features in TEMS™ Investigation, such as the ability to analyze LTE cell traffic scheduling and load, allowing users to pinpoint where potential bottlenecks reside in the network.
“Support for the Galaxy S6 only a few days after its launch is the result of an initiative Ascom has implemented to achieve even faster integration of devices into products in the TEMS™ portfolio, reinforcing our commitment to fulfill our customers’ needs with first to market solutions to assess and optimize the quality of their networks” stated Erik Tarnvik, CTO, Ascom Network Testing. He added, “We participated in the first commercial Carrier Aggregation deployments, working with the first infrastructure vendor to bring the technology to market, and continue our commitment to quickly bring to market solutions to support LTE Advanced and other evolving technologies as they become a reality.”
Several models of the S6 and S6 Edge are expected to be supported in the near future, including support for advanced features such as Voice over LTE.
