Networks & Security

This segment consists of the Cloud and IP, Application Security and Positioning lines of business.

The segment tests communications networks, services and applications and security in the lab during the development and product verification phase prior to launch. The value to customers is to allow them to launch new projects with confidence in network functionality and performance at scale with variabilities in traffic, reliability and security. Security is a critical growth opportunity, from all connected devices, networks and services to the provision of satellite time and position signals used in critical infrastructure applications and new applications, such as autonomous vehicles.

Lifecycle Service Assurance

This segment consists of the Mobility Infrastructure, Customer Experience Management, Service Assurance and Automation Platform Technologies lines of business.

This segment’s solutions enable the measurement of network performance and customer experience periodically and the rapid diagnosis of detected or reported network performance and customer experience problems.

Its purpose is to provide active testing and analytics in the operational network, with a focus on wireless service providers. Active test assurance helps customers stay ahead by reducing operating costs while maintaining the quality of service and user experience. It enables the real-time assessment of the network, allowing faster fault fixing and giving insight into the users’ experience.

Connected Devices

This segment consists of the Wireless and Service Experience lines of business together with Communications Technologies Management (formerly Device Intelligence and Developer Tools).

This segment’s purpose is to provide technical solutions to test the performance of wireless devices, primarily those that rely on cellular technologies, including smartphones but increasingly of any connected device. The next major technological wave under development is 5G wireless, as well as how to mitigate the concern around the security of many previously unconnected devices being linked to the network.
