Mobile World Congress 2014

SOUTH PLAINFIELD, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- W2BI, Inc., a member of the Advantest Group (NYSE:ATE), and a leading software provider of wireless device test automation products for the world’s top mobile operators and suppliers, announced that it will participate in the annual Mobile World Congress taking place in Barcelona, Spain, February 24 – 27, 2014. W2BI will demonstrate three new automated test suites that enable improved device quality, time-to-market and reduced device returns. W2BI will exhibit in Hall 6, Stand 6K37, at Barcelona’s Fira Gran Via.

At Mobile World Congress, W2BI will introduce its LTE Interband and Multiband Testing Solution, designed to help the global wireless industry validate interband and interfrequency scenarios such as cell selection, redirection and handover, and to assess device system selection across LTE and 3G roaming bands.

W2BI will also debut its Customer Experience Stress Testing software, which not only improves the customer satisfaction quotient, but reduces return rates and limits the need for unnecessary repairs, and will demonstrate a new robust end-to-end VoLTE lab testing capability to validate VoLTE device network interoperability, and assess compatibility across devices. This software measures both call performance and device stress conditions, and evaluates the impact of simultaneous activities and interruptions.

In addition, W2BI will be demonstrating new functionality for its QUIKSTRESS™ testing platform for lab and live testing which allows testers of Android devices to easily record macros and have them play-back across different models and manufacturers. QUIKSTRESS is designed to identify and troubleshoot customer-experience issues at the point of sale, and to reduce the No Fault Found (NFF) devices at the repair centers to save costs for both for OEMs and operators.

Derek DiPerna, president of W2BI commented, “W2BI is excited to introduce these new software products and solutions for LTE, VoLTE, and System Level Test. We look forward to partnering with the world’s wireless operators and device community, in developing higher quality devices and services on a global scale.”
