The importance of Field Testing and GCF Field Tests Certification are getting higher as many mobile operators as rolling out their 5G networks in Europe, requiring Non-Standalone (NSA) and Standalone (SA) tests. Besides 5G, IMS tests are also especially important to perform to check the right Carrier Customization requirements, as toggles on/off, icons for every service, menus, and features for IMS, require different test scenarios to ensure a proper carrier customization, carrier approval and a good user experience.
