Based on its recent analysis of the global 5G new radio (NR) drive test solutions market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Infovista with the 2021 Global Market Leadership Award for its first-in-class NR drive test solutions for mobile operators transitioning to 5G. Its well-established and comprehensive TEMS™ network testing product portfolio supports all stages of 5G deployments, including troubleshooting, optimizing, and monitoring RF networks. By enabling automatically embedded analytics, augmented measurements, and root cause analysis, Infovista continues to raise the bar on 5G testing across markets.
“The inherent complexities in deploying 5G NR have created a fresh set of drive testing requirements. Infovista can ably address these with its end-to-end network testing TEMS product portfolio,” said Sujan Sami, Research Manager. “TEMS allows the company to serve as a one-stop-shop for 5G planning, geodata, and 5G NR testing. The portfolio addresses the needs of indoor, outdoor, and stationary applications and plays an important role in the activities performed during the network’s life cycle, from site verification and acceptance to equipment validation.”
Comprising TEMS Investigation, TEMS Pocket, TEMS Sense, TEMS Paragon, and TEMS Discovery, the TEMS portfolio is the most holistic 5G NR-compliant drive test solution set in the market. TEMS Investigation’s simple data collection methods, unmatched flexibility, and ease-of-use make it the most
versatile all-in-one network testing, while the superior portability of the TEMS Pocket can enhance analysis of indoor, underground, and densely populated areas measurements. It also offers exceptional real-time data visualization capabilities compatible with the TEMS Discovery reporting tool, helping users monitor and verify network and service performance with a wide set of key performance indicators.
Meanwhile, the TEMS Sense has been gaining traction in the market due to its autonomous mobile network testing capabilities that allow users to perform continuous testing remotely via a web interface. It can support network testing probes 24/7 and be installed in company vehicles, buses, trains, ferries, or stationary locations via a web interface. These leading-edge technologies have been pivotal to the company’s evolution as a provider of fully managed cloud-based solutions and real-time analytics.
