Spirent Tests Wi-Fi Network Performance with O2 at Coca-Cola London Eye

Spirent Communications plc (LSE:SPT) has announced its Landslide E10 network test platform has been used with O2 to validate the Wi-Fi network performance and capacity at the Coca-Cola London Eye, before the launch of a new smartphone application last month, the company said.

Merlin Entertainments plc, operator of the London Eye, wanted to measure its Wi-Fi network performance, to ensure its infrastructure could provide an excellent experience for users of the new app, which puts increased demands on the Wi-Fi network.

Wi-Fi networks have grown in recent years to help deliver more smartphone app traffic, including both voice and real-time video. So providers like O2 must ensure that networks can provide good user experience, whether at a visitor attraction, a sports arena, a hotel, or across a city like London.

Spirent Landslide enables Wi-Fi providers to test their network performance and capacity by emulating users with a range of different devices, and the network traffic that they might generate.

Landslide E10 has been used with a number of different operators to proactively test the network from the end customer´s perspective, to assure the quality of experience for all customers. This can greatly reduce the time, cost and quality of testing and validating performance over traditional walk test methods by emulating the actions of real clients in a repeatable and scaleable manner.
