How to Test A-GPS Capable Cellular Devices and Why Testing is Required
Some of the hottest mobile phone applications are enabled by A-GPS. These applications include navigation, retail & food establishment location, theater show times, emergency location and more. A-GPS is now standard in smart phones, and common in many of the latest mobile devices. For these applications to work properly, and ultimately for customers to be satisfied by the user experience, the hardware, firmware, and software in the device must be designed properly to quickly and accurately report location information in real-world conditions. This webcast describes why A-GPS performance must be tested, three types of A-GPS testing, and equipment that is required for test.
