Spirent Communications plc announces Executive Changes

Spirent Communications plc announced that Jonathan Silver has been appointed as a non-executive director and becomes a member of the Audit, Remuneration and Nomination Committees. Following the announcement of half-year results in August, Jonathan will replace Ian Brindle as Chairman of the company's Audit Committee and, as previously announced, Sue Swenson will then become Senior Independent Non-executive Director. Jonathan has recently stepped down from his role as Chief Financial Officer at Laird plc where he has held a variety of senior positions over the last thirty years. Since 2007 he has also been a non-executive director at Invesco Income Growth Trust plc, where he is also Chair of their Audit Committee.

Spirent Communications Unveils its eCall and ERA-GLONASS In-Vehicle Systems (IVS) Test Solution

Spirent Communications unveiled its eCall and ERA-GLONASS In-Vehicle Systems (IVS) test solution to verify the functionality and protocol conformance of the eCall and ERA GLONASS enabled vehicular systems. eCall and ERA GLONASS will soon become mandatory in new vehicles in Europe and Russia. eCall and ERA-GLONASS are, respectively, European and Russian initiatives that combine mobile communications, navigation and information technologies to provide rapid assistance to vehicle occupants in the event of a collision. The initiatives are anticipated to cut emergency services response time by 50%-60% and to decrease road fatalities by 10% per year. To ensure these services meet government-mandated requirements, the eCall/ERA-GLONASS IVS must be tested for all possible real world scenarios, which requires highly accurate GPS and/or GLONASS simulation. With a modular design, the Spirent solution can simulate selected elements of the real automotive environment to enable IVS testing, or the whole environment for closed loop testing. It also enables designers to optimize their emergency and location systems with performance testing that helps ensure better sensitivity or greater resilience in weak signal areas. The solution also meets the Russian GOST-R specifications with all 17 GOST-R 5534-2013 test cases pre-programmed. The Spirent eCall and ERA-GLONASS IVS test solution builds on Spirent’s long-established leadership in satellite navigation and mobile communications test. It uses Spirent GSS6700 or GSS6300M global navigation satellite system (GNSS) simulator to evaluate location performance, and the eCall/ERA GLONASS Simulator Platform, which provides fast, simple and repeatable test execution and analysis.
