Spirent Communications Plc Analyst Notes
On June 3, 2014, Spirent Communications Plc (Spirent) announced the launch of AVS (Acoustic Verification System), the industry's first bench-top system for fast and reliable evaluation of mobile device acoustic speech quality. Spirent informed that with AVS, operators can now incorporate sophisticated acoustic speech analyses into their forward and reverse device logistics processes, which enhances cost savings and improved user experience. Des Owens, General Manager of Spirent's Service Experience business unit, said, "We see an exciting opportunity to help operators improve their forward and reverse logistics processes with AVS. In tests of actual returned devices, AVS showed that more than 60% of these devices had acoustic speech quality defects that were undetectable by less sophisticated subjective and functional tests. By improving operators' ability to identify defective in-warranty devices, AVS can save operators millions." The full analyst notes on Spirent are available to download free of charge at:
