Industry Challenges
Long-term evolution (LTE) and long-term evolution-advanced (LTE-A) are already undergoing commercial deployments in most major countries around the globe. The initial phase of deployment for LTE-A technologies enhances market opportunities for test equipment vendors. However, despite the imminent trials and deployments of LTE, a key challenge for test equipment companies is to sustain growth revenue in a market with huge cost sensitivity at all levels of the industry. The intrinsic nature of the industry is creating a request for low cost. Delivering products that support customers’ need for cost sensitivity is still a challenge to succeed in this competitive market.
Cost, however, is only one element of the total value proposition from LTE test equipment vendors. Test equipment organizations usually underestimate the challenge of successfully providing optimization solutions and efficiency, in terms of drive testing for LTE rollout. In some cases, drive testers fail because invalidated data is collected and several testing processes are required to be redone due to the unappropriated data collection.
Another challenge that test equipment organizations usually underestimate is the successful provision of a testing solution that is suited to the skills and capabilities of every end user. The skills required for the use of several drive testers in the market to perform data collection consist of very high labor qualifications.
In such a scenario, the companies that are able to offer low-cost optimization solutions and a comprehensive end-to–end testing approach enjoy a better position with which to sustain and grow in any given market with high growth potential.

Frost & Sullivan Analysis:

Functionality
Verveba Telecom understands and has addressed the key requirements in today’s LTE test equipment market. TAPAS, an Android operating system and mobile application, is delivered for an entire end-to-end service model, in terms of LTE rollouts and multi-carrier optimization services. The product provides capabilities for RF planning, design, installation, and the maintenance of hardware on the site. TAPAS is mainly focused on site shakedown testing in order to provide relevant and key performance indicators for building and connection at a new network site. The product has capabilities for post-processes that are focused on delivering the best performance over the network to meet the increasing requirements from the marketplace.
To capture these opportunities, Verveba has taken a proactive step toward supporting LTE network technology and designing a solution that is focused on understanding best practices in drive-testing solutions. The company has identified key unmet customer needs, thus providing a customized testing solution that facilitates the collection of data without using heavy and expensive test gears that usually need to be purchased from other original equipment manufacturers. The TAPAS application that is used in a handset-based platform can perform data collection without connecting to any laptop. It can also automatically make post processes. Compared to the traditional test equipment approach in the market, in which users have to get back to the office and determine whether or not the collected data is accurate, TAPAS offers the unique capabilities to process data in real time as soon as it is collected. This outstanding technology is maintaining a distinct advantage over its competitors and is well ahead in the race of supporting LTE trials and rollouts.

Ease of Use
TAPAS has demonstrated unique capabilities to appropriately meet the market needs with a best-in-class handset-based platform suitable for every end user who is performing data collection. TAPAS is customized to any level. There is no need to have an engineering background or a highly skilled and knowledgeable end user to operate data collection.
TAPAS’ highly flexible platform allows for the customization and running of the test sequences that are required by the operator, rather than the ones that the test vendor has preselected. Verveba has made a number of attempts to build a smart application to perform data collection for anybody who can operate a mobile phone. The end user must only press a single button to conduct data collection because everything at the server level is controlled and monitored in advance. TAPAS allows users to conduct all testing functions with one click of a button.
This unique ease of use, simplicity, and flexibility in modeling, configuring, and adapting features for data collection have facilitated its penetration into different operators in North America and throughout the world.

Product/Service Quality
TAPAS conducted the entire test sequence that was configured by the server. Verveba has added all of the intelligence and complexity to the server and ensures the best performance and quality over the network. Verveba has demonstrated unique capabilities in understanding the local market needs for specific cases in which it is required to configure and customize test sequences and test durations. All of the collected data is processed in real time and the results are available via the server and an end-user mobile phone with a report of the site. This unique proposition distinguishes Verveba from other participants in the industry.

Perceived Value
In a market with accelerated innovation and competition, Verveba has maintained top-line growth that exceeds the North American LTE test equipment market average, performing data collection faster and less expensively than the traditional testing approach. The company is offering a price-level that is comparatively lower than buying new test equipment or even renting options for short periods of time.
When the tester is performing testing, he or she obtains the results directly over the site. TAPAS can significantly reduce the cost of testing and get the launch on site with minimum cost. According to the company, TAPAS has made significant inroads for cost savings of site shakedown testing by more than 90% on the network with a reduction from three days to only 90 minutes. This is unique in the market and brings added value in comparison to the traditional way of collecting data.

Customer Purchase Experience

There are companies that are mainly focused on planning work or just focused on building the site. Frost & Sullivan benchmarking analysis finds that Verveba has been successful in the LTE test equipment market because of the implementation of its testing approach which combines planning, building, and optimization. This entire end-to-end service model, in terms of LTE rollouts, results in significant cost efficiency. The whole testing program is managed from an end-to-end perspective. This helps the customer to not only manage the testing program very effectively, but it also reduces the cost on the network.

TAPAS is giving customers an end-to-end and full review of the LTE rollout at an unbeatable cost and time within the market place. Its ease of use, simplicity, and flexibility in modeling, configuring, and adaptive features for data collection have facilitated its penetration into different operators. With its strong overall price performance,

Verveba Telecom has earned the 2015 Frost & Sullivan Price/Performance Value Leadership Award in the North American Test and Measurement Equipment Market.

Verveba @ RCR Wireless

Posted on Dec , 03, 2014

What is shakedown testing?

Shakedown testing, also known as site acceptance testing, is site testing that occurs when contractors have completed construction and installation work at a network site, but before a site is handed over to the carrier’s operations team.

Texas-based Verveba Telecom specializes in testing for wireless networks – including shakedown testing of network sites. RCR Wireless News spoke with Manik Arora, founder and CEO of Verveba, for a better understanding of the shakedown testing process and Verveba’s app-based approach.

“With any new technology rollout to the wireless domain, we do a lot of upgrades on the hardware or in the software,” Arora said. “In this case, for LTE shakedown testing, we are testing the existing, underlying technology – UMTS, or 3G – and we are upgrading to 4G software and hardware on sites.”

What does shakedown testing consist of?

Each operator has its own specific, standard testing before a site is accepted, Arora said. In general, though, the testing focuses on two areas: functional and mobility testing to ensure basic site capabilities. Optimization testing is done later, Arora said, after the site has been accepted by the carrier and handed over to its operations team. He said traditionally, shakedown testing has consisted of cluster drives and benchmarking equipment in vehicles.

Functional testing focuses on voice and data tests performed in each sector of the cell, close to the site. Tests ensure not only that a device connects to the proper sector, but also assess fallback mechanisms to make sure that fallback to circuit-switched voice and 3G data sessions work properly.

Mobility testing ensures that handovers between the sectors at the site are happening properly, with a low degree of latency. Arora said that handovers are tested at all three of the sectors: sector A to B, B to C, and C to A.

Some carriers may require additional testing.

What are some current trends in shakedown testing?

Arora said that most operators perform shakedown testing on a large scale, but are limited by the expensive traditional equipment for drive testing. He sees integrators seeking to cut costs on testing as well as trying to speed up the process as operators not only work to expand their LTE networks, but also look toward the new technologies and services that are coming as part of LTE and LTE-Advanced. Arora said that Verveba is already doing some voice over LTE-related testing, and that the company is working with OEM partners and operators to keep tabs on the testing that will be required for roaming and LTE-A features such as carrier aggregation.

What is Verveba Telecom’s approach?

Verveba has developed a mobile app that provides the key performance indicators used in shakedown testing. The app was recently shortlisted for an award for best test and measurement product at the LTE North America conference, and Arora said that the app is able to cut two to three days of shakedown testing time to 90 minutes.

“Handsets are very powerful devices now,” Arora said, and many KPIs can be accessed via mobile chipsets. Arora said that the app allows shakedown testing to be performed much faster and less expensively, compared to the cost of buying or renting traditional test equipment, and it also provides the test data in real time. The app user interface is simple enough that nonengineers can also perform the testing, he added.

“What we did is create a UI which is very powerful and easy to understand,” Arora said. “It’s all color-coded. You don’t need a very high skill level to perform the tests.”
