GWS’s Major Updates Allow for Precise, Agile Testing of Wireless Networks
DULLES, VA – August 28, 2014 – Defining the wireless industry standard for analysis and testing, Global Wireless Solutions, Inc. (GWS) today announced the availability of its expanded mobile benchmarking app for Android OS devices, with significant new features and capabilities. A diagnostic tool for mobile network operators, mobile device vendors, engineers and regulators—the app is a network testing tool designed specifically for today’s ever changing wireless industry, allowing for performance monitoring and results analysis from anywhere along with real-time network reporting.
“The wireless industry demands not only efficient benchmarking technology, but an agile solution that meets today’s mobile standards,” said Paul Carter, president and CEO of GWS. “That’s why we’ve added several new features to our benchmarking app, which is designed to provide accurate testing of mobile network performance. With major networks currently making significant improvements to their infrastructures, we’re constantly seeing the evolution of mobile at work. It’s time for wireless benchmarking to follow suit, and to keep pace. Our robust rollout of features ensures that network benchmarking can positively contribute to the wireless industry, providing realistic, dependable and essential business intelligence.”
Key features of the Android app include:
Comprehensive Testing – The app systematically measures the real-time performance of wireless networks according to end-to-end throughput performance, cellular or Wi-Fi operation, latency (round trip time, packet loss and jitter) as well as data speeds, successes, failures, drops and other key metrics.
Complete Control – The app provides for full control over tests, making them customizable by creating either single-test or multi-test scenarios (e.g. repeatedly testing file upload and download based on pre-selected file sizes). The app also allows for testing of single or multi-thread tasks (e.g. mimic music and video downloads). In addition, the app can perform the following tests: ping, HTTP browser, HTTP upload/download and multi-thread upload/download.
Ultimate Flexibility – The app allows for the creation, management and modification of projects with ease. While monitoring networks in real-time, test results can be viewed instantaneously and will be stored along with other test results for subsequent viewing and comparison.
Integration with GWS’s Mobistat Reporting Platform – The app utilizes GWS’s Mobistat technology which provides users with interactive, web based reporting and mapping tools to view and analyze real-time data collected from the app.
The app is available now exclusively for Android devices. An iOS version will be available in the latter half of 2014. For more information, visit www.gwsolutions.com, or read more in the GWS mobile diagnostic app brochure.
