Anite, a global leader in wireless device testing technology, announced that it has signed a further three-year agreement with Deutsche Telekom to provide interoperability test solutions. Deutsche Telekom owns the T-Mobile brand, one of the world’s top ten providers of mobile phone services.

Deutsche Telekom is a long-term user of SAS, Anite’s interoperability test solution, creating customised test cases to rigorously test new device features prior to launch. This ensures that devices operate as intended on the network and improves end-user satisfaction. As a result, Deutsche Telekom has experienced a reduction in customer support calls and the number of requests for device swaps and repairs, enabling them to make cost savings over a longer period of time. Deutsche Telekom has been using SAS for over five years to analyse issues including dropped calls, non-received calls and network related signalling.

“Anite’s SAS offers us a flexible, simple and repeatable method of testing mobile devices and is proven to save us time, resources and money”, says Dr Ralf Mehlan, VP Terminal Integration and Validation at Deutsche Telekom. He continues, “Anite’s expertise and capabilities in the area of wireless device testing were key contributing factors to the extension of our agreement.”

Andreas Utrap (Radio Engineer responsible for Anite systems) adds, “With its intuitive graphical user interface and reliable platform, SAS enables us to launch new devices to our customers in a much shorter timeframe.”

“Anite is delighted to be extending our partnership with Deutsche Telekom, a major European mobile operator”, said Paul Beaver, Products Director of Anite. He continues, “This multi-year agreement reaffirms Deutsche Telekom’s commitment to Anite as a preferred supplier of interoperability test solutions.”
