Solutions for Modern Wireless Test

Helping you achieve real world, controlled test environments​

Here are six tests cases to ensure your devices will perform reliably in today's complex wireless environment.  

Throughput Testing
Throughput Testing
Designed to perform simultaneous controlled conductive and over the air testing.

Test the throughput of multiple wireless devices (5G and Wi-Fi) at various transmit and receive power levels. This can be adapted for testing any other wireless technologies such as 5G, LTE, Bluetooth, and Zigbee, for example. Test for throughput, jitter, packet error rate vs range, device orientation and more.

 

 

 

Certification Testing
Certification Testing
Designed for the certification of wireless radios in a controlled environment.

This RF conductive test setup emulates an outdoor LTE/5G wireless environment with a 5G/LTE Radio

and user devices or a UE simulator. This setup is used to simulates the fading loss between the radios and the user devices/UE simulator. The test allows you to connect multiple radios to multiple user-devices and control signal coordination to the devices under test. This RF Testbed can also be adapted for testing any other wireless technologies such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Zigbee etc. as well.

Hybrid Testing
Hybrid Testing
Designed to allow for mobility testing for handover use-cases

Simultaneously support conductive and hybrid over-the-air (OTA) tests with multiple radios connected to a single antenna. We use a butler matrix to produce a channel condition number of 1, maximizing throughput. Add a multipath emulator to reproduce multipath conditions in the Wi-Fi 6E frequency bands.

Multipath Testing
Multipath Testing
Designed for testing of RF propagation in a virtual indoor or outdoor environment.

models multipath in a Wi-Fi environment with a power delay path matching the IEEE TG-n channel model. This test environment supports class B (indoor) NLOS and Expand Line of Sight (LOS) models, along with class D (outdoor) Expand Non-Line of Sight (NLoS) operation. An on-board phase shifter provides the ability to exercise the DUT under the full range of multipath conditions (both destructive and constructive interference).

Handover Testing
Handover Testing
Designed to allow for the testing of motion triggers roaming or cell handover and data rate adaptation.

The RF conductive test setup emulates an outdoor LTE/5G wireless environment, with a 5G/LTE Radio and user devices and allow you to test for the handover between base stations or access points. The radios under test are connected to power dividers/combiners, then into multi-channel programmable attenuators. Finally, the signal is routed to a number of user-devices. Motion can be emulated by ramping the attenuators to introduce signal fading loss versus time. The ramping rate can be accurately controlled to emulate typical velocity of mobile devices when in vehicles.

Mesh Connectivity Testing
Mesh Connectivity Testing
Designed to allow for the testing of an multi node mesh RF network conductively.

Test Mesh Node Placements and the formation of dynamic routing connections for point-to-point or end-to-end environments ensuring that data and applications can be securely delivered and controlled across a wide range of environments. You can also test Station Moving Patterns moving between nodes sequentially, jumping out of sequence etc. The Load Patterns test looks at fixed and mobile devices moving around the business premieres handing over between nodes running data, confirming that data and applications can be securely delivered and controlled across the mesh network environments.
