Rohde & Schwarz mobile network testing launches certified partner program to address network challenges end-to-end

Rohde & Schwarz mobile network testing (MNT) is introducing a certified partner program to address with a more holistic approach the complexity that mobile network operators face when testing a network. By strengthening collaboration with selected business partners in the field of testing service providers and service companies, the leading global supplier of mobile network testing solutions ensures consistent mutual knowledge transfer. As a result, Rohde & Schwarz MNT and/or its certified partners can offer network operators better targeted end-to-end services and mobile network testing expertise.

In line with an increasingly diverse and sophisticated RF environment, the testing and benchmarking of mobile networks has reached an unprecedented level of complexity. This is due, on the one hand, to the rapid technological advancements in telecommunications, including the Internet of Things, which connects billions of devices and floods networks with massive amounts of data. On the other hand, there are the fast-paced introduction of smartphones with ever more capabilities, new apps and subscribers demanding amazing customer experiences. This is compounded by the pressure put on mobile operators to reduce CAPEX and OPEX.

Rohde & Schwarz MNT, a key player in the field of mobile network testing, is addressing these drastic challenges faced by operators by strengthening collaboration with selected business partners through a certified partner program.

Hanspeter Bobst, Vice President of Rohde & Schwarz MNT, says: “Partnering with selected service companies is a win-win for all parties involved. The knowledge accumulated through close collaboration with certified partners, also in terms of R&D, enables us and our certified partners to offer operators more specialized and better targeted solutions to tackle complex network testing questions. It also lets us anticipate answers that might not appear obvious at first. Continuous knowledge transfer ensures consolidated expertise and consequently lets operators reach more comprehensive conclusions about their network in less time and with fewer costs.”

Certified partners of Rohde & Schwarz MNT are actively involved in the development process and have early access to new products and features. These exclusive insights, combined with the mutual knowledge transfer, reduce the overall time to market for new solutions. This gives certified partners a crucial competitive edge and mobile operators the advantage of being able to adopt new technologies first.

Negotiations with several partner candidates are currently underway. Initial results will soon be published at the dedicated Rohde & Schwarz MNT website: https://www.mobile-network-testing.com/en/about/certified-partners/.
