Voice over LTE (VoLTE) Speech Quality Measurements

This application note and associated application software may be used to conduct psychoacoustic speech quality evaluation for Voice over LTE (VoLTE) connections. The measurements are based on recommendations ITU-T P.862 and ITU-T P.863, respectively. The CMWrun example sequences perform decoder / encoder calibration, connection setup for the UE under test and subsequent speech quality analysis… Read more »

LTE Location Based Services Technology Introduction

Location Based Services (LBS) involves the process of determining where a device is located. Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) based solutions are highly accurate and the technology of choice for absolute position accuracy, providing the device has a good line-of-sight, but this is not always the case. A device can be in a highly dense… Read more »
