World News:  Qualcomm’s MobileView helps troubleshoot mobile network ‘dead areas’

Qualcomm has announced the commercial availability of MobileView™ – a software application that remotely captures diagnostic data with GPS from mobile handsets, providing insight into handset and network performance.

MobileView is currently in trials with CDMA2000® and WCDMA (UMTS) network operators worldwide, including T-Mobile Germany.

“Remotely collecting performance data from opt-in users is the next trend in handset testing and network optimisation,” said Tia Cassett, senior director of business development at Qualcomm CDMA Technologies. “By collecting diagnostic data directly from handsets, MobileView delivers a thorough reporting of mobile and network performance. This enables device manufacturers to improve their time to market by identifying issues earlier. Network operators can also use it as a tool to keep their networks optimised and running efficiently.”

MobileView captures performance data throughout the network, and can help provide a more efficient and cost-effective way to proactively identify problems in areas not typically covered by drive testing, which is typically limited to major roads and freeways.
