Altran Expands its Testing Portfolio with “Total Testing”

East Brunswick, NJ, Dec 1., 2010 — Altran®, a global innovation, technology, and services company focused exclusively on communications, today announced the expansion of its advanced telecom testing services portfolio with “Total Testing”. The first and most comprehensive service of its kind, “Total Testing” helps telecom equipment manufacturers, communications service providers (CSPs), and mobile device makers save significant resources by providing a world-class test facility along with highly qualified domain experts. As a result, companies interested in testing products for the “deployment readiness” can resolve problems before they go into a live network.

“We have been using Altran's ‘Total Testing’ solution since February 2010 to test products and services deployed in our UK network. The service is truly comprehensive both in terms of the network scope and the testing offering that it encompasses,” explained Phil Green, head of core networks at Vodafone UK and a key user of Altran’s “Total Testing” service. “Altran has a highly skilled team of telecom professionals who manage and deliver all our testing requirements from recommending the optimal test strategy, to setting up the environment, to executing the test cycles.”

“Total Testing” unites Altran’s Testing and Certification Services and Wireless Infrastructure Practice with an advanced Network Test Environment (NTE) based in Newbury, United Kingdom. The result is one of the most comprehensive mobile network testing offerings in the world, capable of testing 2G/2.5G/3G/3.5G networks. With this announcement, Altran now provides comprehensive testing services for applications, mobile devices, and telecom equipment, including:

  • Interoperability Testing: Testing for the interoperability of any network equipment element with access, backhaul, core and other applications in a real 2G/2.5G/3G/3.5G network
  • Integration Testing: Ensuring complete integration of the equipment being tested with all 3rd party components that need to be directly connected in the core and access networks, as well as with external systems
  • End-to-end Testing: Identification and evaluation of end-to-end key performance indicators (KPIs) in a live multi-vendor environment
  • Device Certification: Network acceptance testing and certification, as international roaming capability testing of new mobile devices

“We are in the midst of a significant mobile network upgrade cycle globally, and ensuring products are well tested and interoperable with the existing communications ecosystem is a top priority for all players in this exciting space,” said Patrick Joggerst, executive vice president and general manager at Altran. “With ‘Total Testing’ we provide significant innovation in the critical area of testing and look forward to helping mobile device makers and equipment manufacturers deliver high quality and differentiated products in a cost-effective manner.”
