Empirix, the market leader of service quality assurance solutions for new IP communications, today announced that China Mobile, one of the world’s largest operators, selected the Hammer for IMS solution to provide large scale end-user simulation to verify the performance and functionality of the company’s voice, video and data applications before going live. As a result, Empirix delivered the confidence that the network would meet China Mobile’s high standards of service quality prior to its deployment.
With approximately 550 million mobile customers, China Mobile is one of the largest operators in the world and the number one operator in China. As part of its strategy to be a full service provider with “Mobile + IP + IMS,” China Mobile is deploying a large scale IMS network in 27 major provinces throughout the country. Empirix has been working with China Mobile for several months to provide on-site system verification to ensure the network and applications could scale to meet the needs of the end-users. The Empirix solution offers the flexibility to emulate millions of subscribers utilizing the voice, video and data applications on China Mobile’s IMS network.
China Mobile looked at a number of different solutions, but only the Empirix solution could meet the breadth of both the feature and performance testing requirements. In addition, Empirix offered an unmatched, deep experience in the IMS market, as well as exceptional professional service, which were essential in helping China Mobile qualify its infrastructure vendors.
