The vMobile is a handheld ultra-portable device that brings true mobility to voice, video and data quality testing on wireless devices (any mobile phone or radio), changing the way automated drive and walk testing is performed. It is simple to setup and conduct simultaneous voice, video, and data quality tests to benchmark performance of any type of telephony device.

“The vMobile™ handheld device can support full audio testing for mobile phones and mobile radios, as well as providing data testing for mobile phones. The vMobile™ can be hand-carried for walk and drive testing (includes GPS) as well as left in labs and can work directly with GL’s VQuad™ solution for very flexible end-to-end testing. All functionality and configuration of the vMobile™ is provided using the remote web-based Console or Console App which is installed on any Android or iOS device. In essence, the vMobile™ is an expansion of GL’s current VQuad™ Voice and Data testing solution,” said Robert Bichefsky, Director of Engineering at GL Communications Inc.

He further added, “The vMobile™ includes two Bluetooth® modules, an embedded Wi-Fi module, and an onboard GPS. vMobile™ can operate either in Bluetooth mode or Analog mode (replace the headset on any analog device including Mobile Radio with PTT). The embedded Wi-Fi supports remote operation along with remote audio analysis and sends all results/events to a Central Database, accessed through GL’s WebViewer (web browser).”
