Metrico Wireless expands mobile testing services

New offering provides analysis of user experience metrics such as audio, data, streaming video and location-based information

By CBR Staff Writer

Metrico Wireless, a provider of mobile testing services for wireless devices, is adding Assisted GPS (A-GPS) performance testing services to its wireless device testing service portfolio.

The Metrico A-GPS performance testing service is the latest in its line of wireless performance testing services, which provides analysis of user experience metrics such as audio, data, streaming video and location-based information. Specifically, Metrico’s A-GPS field team tests the accuracy and response time of the device to obtain GPS fixes for E911 and mobile application purposes.

The company claims that the new A-GPS performance testing service complements Metrico’s audio and data testing to ensure that new devices get to market quickly and cost-effectively with the optimal user experience when the users turn them on for the first time.

Des Owens, general manager of Metrico, said: “As a trusted partner, we need to evolve with the needs of the industry, and right now, A-GPS is at the core of many exciting mobile applications.

“Field testing at the device level requires a high level of expertise and familiarity with the nationwide field testing process. A-GPS is no exception. In partnering with Metrico, carriers and manufacturers worldwide don’t have to worry about the logistics and cost of dedicating internal resources to device testing. They can leave that to us, knowing it’s in the hands of people whose core business is mobile testing.”
