The Qualcomm TCN (Test Center Network) is a network of device test centers/houses to which Qualcomm provides services and technical support. As part of this technical support Qualcomm provides focused technical training. A Test Center Network Training Session took place in Málaga, Spain the 24 and 25 of January this year for the first time.
As both DEKRA and Keysight are TCN members we took the opportunity to invite Qualcomm representatives to visit the TRIANGLE test bed hosted by the University of Málaga. The visit included the Ada Byron Premises and the microwave and millimetre wave laboratories of the School of Engineering.
A demo of the TRIANGLE test bed was performed. The TRIANGLE portal was used to configure test campaigns in different predefined end-to-end network scenarios and a video app running on a Samsung Galaxy S7 device was tested. Qualcomm representatives inquired about various details of the orchestrator and results processing mode as well as the capabilities of the testbed.
“We are very impressed with what we saw today,” said Vikram Malhotra, Director of Program Management, Qualcomm Technologies Inc. “Network and device testing will be instrumental in ensuring successful commercialization of 5G in 2019.”
