Qualcomm Incorporated (Nasdaq: QCOM), a leading developer and innovator of advanced wireless technologies and data solutions, today announced the commercial availability of the MobileView™ product. MobileView is a software application that remotely captures diagnostic data with GPS from mobile handsets, providing insight into handset and network performance. MobileView is currently in trials with CDMA2000® and WCDMA (UMTS) network operators worldwide, including T-Mobile Germany.
“The need to ensure that our networks have the best quality is very important to T-Mobile,” said Peter Smolka, head of measurement systems radio coverage, T-Mobile Germany. “Remote diagnostics is a positive evolution for network optimization.”
“Remotely collecting performance data from opt-in users is the next trend in handset testing and network optimization,” said Tia Cassett, senior director of business development at Qualcomm CDMA Technologies. “By collecting diagnostic data directly from handsets, MobileView delivers a thorough reporting of mobile and network performance. This enables device manufacturers to improve their time to market by identifying issues earlier. Network operators can also use it as a tool to keep their networks optimized and running efficiently.”
The performance data that MobileView provides can help provide a more efficient and cost-effective way to proactively identify problems in areas not typically covered by drive testing. Drive testing is typically limited to major roads and freeways, while MobileView captures information throughout the network, including in residential and indoor settings.
