Environmental Testing - Institutes


All environmental testing is performed by the following independent test-institutes: test institutes: STFI Packforsk AB Stockholm-Kista, Sweden SP, SP Swedish National Testing and Research Institute Bors, Sweden UV-test is performed by Polykemi AB in Malm, supplier of the ASA material for the antenna radome radome.

Vibration Test Sinus (5 (5-200 Hz, 10 m/s m/s)

Shock & Bump Tests (100 m/s m/s x 100 b.)

Salt Mist Test, Cyclic (40C, (40C, 72 hours)

Conclusion
Increased efficiency:

up to 30 % increase in coverage 30 % fewer sites cost optimized RF chain antenna position on mast mast, size and wind loading and cost of tower site power and cooling swifter ift roll-out ll t Fewer transmission hops

Reduced CAPEX:

Conclusion - Cont
Increased Traffic: 30% or more increase in revenue improved indoor penetration improved call-set up longer mean holding times of calls increased traffic reduced interference, i increase of fd data t th throughput h t Thanks to reduced number of sites (site rental, utilities, service org. etc)

Reduced OPEX:
