Keysight has announced an innovative test solution that it claims is the first in the industry to support simultaneous cellular and Wi-Fi testing.
The T5510S emulation system provides simultaneous cellular and Wi-Fi cellular signalling tests, including full protocol stack, from layer 1 to layer 7, for multi-mode devices.
The T5510S is enabled by the combination of Keysight’s UXM network emulator and the Ixia Solutions Group’s Wave Test System.
“User experience testing in mobile devices requires an evaluation of application performance under real-world conditions,” said Satish Dhanasekaran, president, Communications Solutions Group, Keysight Technologies. “This solution combines the technologies of Keysight and Ixia to provide a deeper understanding of coexistence challenges as devices interoperate across LTE and Wireless LAN systems.”
“Customers can view the performance of the complete protocol stack with the end-to-end performance verification needed for emerging and demanding applications such as IoT, connected car and 5G,” said Bethany Mayer, president, Ixia Solutions Group. “With the T5510S system, Keysight now offers industry-leading test capabilities to address interoperability challenges for multi-mode devices.”
The platform also includes Keysight’s flexible Test Automation Platform and ready-to-use, built-in test cases.
“This complete system delivers unmatched capabilities for testing with the latest cellular standards (LTE/LTE-Advanced/NB-IoT/Cat-M) as well as all WiFi protocols (802.11a/b/g/n/ac) under a wide range of traffic and RF emulation conditions”, the company said.
The system helps customers improve performance and time-to-market by prototyping, evaluating and diagnosing complex interoperability environments.
