UTStarcom's (UTSI) MovingMedia 8000 3G WCDMA wireless softswitch core infrastructure solution has successfully completed 3GPP R4 standard performance testing in China.
UTStarcom conducted the tests at the MTNet labs with the Research Institute of Telecommunications Transmission (RITT), a division of the China Academy of Telecommunication Research (CATR).
The comprehensive softswitch testing analyzed the MovingMedia 8000's processing capability, availability, stability and overall reliability in a configuration designed to support up to 100,000 subscribers in various traffic load situations. UTStarcom achieved more than 99.9 percent call success rate in all test cases. The UTStarcom system performed strongly, exceeding the requirements of all phases of the tests and receiving special commendation for its "high processing power, high reliability and high availability" from the RITT testing officials.
In 2001, UTStarcom was selected by China's Ministry of Information Industry (MII) as one of 10 companies to participate in the initial 3G technical trials.
The company successfully passed all of phase one and two of the trials, providing a complete 3GPP R99 compliant 3G WCDMA system that showed stable and consistent performance with IP-transport technology.
