Give confidence to your partners and the industry
Supporting and promoting interoperability is one of the main purposes of the GSMA. Which is why we’re introducing new testing services to help with the rollout of 5G, as it brings fresh interoperability challenges for both operators and device manufacturers.
Our range of standardised VoLTE/IMS technology tests and result database are here to bring confidence to the industry. The tests are created in partnership with Mobileum, a leader in this field. They enable operators and manufacturers to debug their products to a common standard, and share their status. Helping accelerate connectivity between devices and networks, along with a rapid increase in roaming agreements. Then once VoLTE is working reliably on a global basis, 2 and 3G sunsetting becomes a practical possibility.
The GSMA issues a certificate to the network or device owners, once the tests are successfully completed. This confirms their interoperability within the scope of GSMA Interoperability Testing, in accordance with GSMA PRD IR.25. Publishing successful test results supports the fast-tracking of VoLTE interoperability and deployments. Since it encourages all interested parties, irrespective of size, to participate in testing and advertise their success.
