9 Fully Automated & Unattended Testing Environment Tests are automatically executed, full control of both the handset and emulation hardware No Need for User Intervention No Inconsistencies between test engineers Automation based on Qualcomm s ICD specification Test pairs are automatically generated. If a PRL does not generate an appropriate test pair for a given test, the test is automatically skipped Auto Run Time hrs (5 days) Man Run Time hrs (12 days) - Does test consistently, cost-effectively, repeatedly - Does not take vacation, get sick, or change jobs
10 CCF & w2bi Collaboration Why Test System Acquisition? One of the most fundamental yet complex mobile device functions Provides insight into how a device will interact with the Live network The ability of a device to acquire the correct CDMA system when in either a home or roaming area is key to delivering a quality subscriber experience using cost effective wireless services Prevents unnecessary loss of revenue or revenue turnover to competing roaming partners Live Testing Challenges Live Networks are dynamic and can impact testing reproducibility Device behavior can be impacted by non technical factors Finding the right live network conditions can require extensive travel Live network testing provides limited insight into device performance Device design variances spawn inconsistent troubles in Live Networks
