HEAD acoustics provides again its expertise for ITU test event
The first two test events of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) on speech quality testing in conjunction with vehicle-mounted hands-free telephone systems were a great success. Therefore, the standardization body organized the third event in November: Mobile phone vendors can test their products in Bangkok, Thailand on November 15 and 16, 2016 during the international exhibition ITU Telecom World.
HEAD acoustics has been selected again as the official test laboratory providing the necessary test equipment. This includes the measurement front end MFE XI (Universal Bluetooth® Access Point) and the Communication Analysis System ACQUA as well as the measurement standards P.1100, P.1110 and HQS-Bluetooth®-Source.
The measurements will comply with Chapter 12 of the ITU-T Recommendations P.1100 ("Narrowband hands-free communication in motor vehicles") and P.1110 ("Wideband hands-free communication in motor vehicles"). Mobile phones which work properly with a vehicle’s hands-free telephone system will be published in the official ITU whitelist afterwards. In addition to mobile phone vendors, the event is also interesting for mobile network operators, car manufacturers and system suppliers of hands-free terminals.
Please find further information about the 3rd test event on the official website of the ITU.
On-demand tests also possible
Furthermore, the ITU provides the opportunity of on-demand testing over the period of 2016 to 2018. Mobile phones can be tested regarding their speech quality on the request of clients. Thus, manufacturers have the possibility to conduct tests during the product development and to launch their mobile phones as listed in the ITU whitelist. In these tests, HEAD acoustics also acts as the official test laboratory.
Please find further information about on-demand testing can be found on the corresponding website of the ITU.
