Andrew Corporation, a global leader in communications products and
systems, has introduced enhanced versions of its Invex3G(R) network
testing tools that will support new high speed data technologies being
deployed by wireless operators.
Invex3G, an industry standard data collection platform used by leading
operators and independent testing companies, now supports high-speed
downlink packet access (HSDPA), the packet-based data service
enhancement of the W-CDMA standard. In addition, Invex3G will begin
supporting EV-DO (evolution-data only) Revision A, the data-enhanced
version of the CDMA2000 standard, at the end of July. The Invex3G
enhancements ensure that the numerous unique performance data associated
with HSDPA and EV-DO Rev A are properly captured and analyzed.
"As operators deploy these high-speed data technologies, Andrew is ready
to support them with testing systems that help ensure the highest level
of network quality and customer satisfaction," said Terry Garner, group
president, Network Solutions, Andrew Corporation. "Invex3G has a stellar
track record in helping operators identify opportunities to enhance
network performance and subscriber satisfaction."
Invex3G enables wireless network operators to view their services from
the subscribers' perspective, providing critical quality-of-service
measurements including mean opinion scores, data throughput, and call
details. Invex3G provides the objective means for network operators to
assess and improve service levels and utilization of key resources.
Invex3G supports all major mobile wireless technologies and
simultaneously can scan multiple radio frequency carriers for
multi-technology testing. Pairing drive test high-speed data-collection
hardware with an easy to use, flexible PC graphical user interface and
display, Invex3G provides a complete measurement solution for wireless
network planning, maintenance, optimization and benchmarking. Invex3G is
