The FLO Forum membership has announced it has approved the FLO Series II and FLO Series III testing plans. FLO Series II (FLO Services Testing) is a suite of application and service-related MediaFLO qualification tests and their descriptions for standardization. A corresponding service Series FLO Device Qualification System (FDQS) facilitates execution of tests.
FLO Series III (FLO/Non-FLO Concurrent Operation) verifies that MediaFLO services do not interfere with non-MediaFLO radio-based services and features on the handset. This specification currently addresses cdma2000 1X, 1xEV-DO a-GPS and Bluetooth test cases.
This means that a complete set of FLO Series I, Series II and Series III Testing Specifications is now available to the market. Series I specifications have already been published by the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) as standards TIA-1102, TIA-1103 and TIA-1104
