  • Patent number: 8942109
    Abstract: An automated method for testing audio signal quality of cell phone transmissions provides a Mean Opinion Score (MOS) output using inexpensive test components. The test system uses a server computer to eliminate the need for expensive faders used in a bench test system. The server computer manipulates data packets from the reference media file to simulate impairments, including losses, errors, noise and jitter, at a much lower cost than using actual faders. Transmission through two separate radio access networks RANs is provided to simulate two parties communicating using separate mobile devices (an end-to-end test solution) with a single cell phone.

  • Publication number: 20140016487
    Abstract: A test system is provided to test both voice and video quality of the connection for a large number of mobile phones, tablets, laptops or other user transmit/receive devices from a central location. The quality can be expressed as a Mean Opinion Score (MOS) and the uplink and downlink connection quality can be separately estimated. The system allows the use of media fragments that are characteristic of an end user and allows video data to be measured at the time and location that the user typically makes calls.

  • Patent number: 7184774
    Abstract: Coordination among mobile stations enables a terminal device (114) to establish a most appropriate wireless network connection. According to the present invention, a connection request, including network connectivity requirements, is communicated from the terminal device (114) to a first mobile station (116). The first mobile station (116) then transmits the network connectivity requirements to a second mobile station (117–119) that is also capable of establishing a wireless network connection. A determination based in part or in whole on the network connectivity requirements is then made at one of the first and second mobile stations (116–119) which station can provide a most appropriate wireless network connection. A network connection is then established through one of the first and second mobile stations (116–119) based on the determination of which of the first and second mobile stations (116–119) can provide the most appropriate wireless network connection.

  • Patent number: 6434381
    Abstract: A mobile station (106) of a wireless communication system (100) detects (502) a predetermined user command applied to a user interface (308) of the mobile station. In response, the mobile station transmits (504), to a fixed portion (110) of the wireless communication system, a message including a request for local information and services. The fixed portion receives (506) the message, and, in response, determines (508) the location at which the mobile station is positioned. The fixed portion then generates (510) A the local information and services custom-tailored to a predetermined area around the location, and sends (512) the local information and services to the mobile station.
