Experts predict a staggering surge in mobile traffic with Wi-Fi playing an even greater role in consumer, business, and service provider networks. Vital real-time applications such as voice, streaming video, unified communications (UC), and patient monitoring are all going mobile, raising the bar for reliable performance higher and higher.

With new devices and applications launching daily, mobile operators need new ways of rolling out differentiated services with proven quality. Relying on "best-case" performance data is no longer an option — they must subject new offerings to challenging real-world conditions beforehand.
