Characterize the performance of your devices
Your devices and network components need to operate successfully in congested interior environments. Added to that is the potential interface from physical objects.
A common test case is to measure the throughput of a number of wireless devices (5G and Wi-Fi) at various transmit and receive power levels.
The RF conductive test setup shown here emulates an indoor Wi-Fi environment, with a Wi-Fi Access Point and multiple user devices. This RF test environment can adapted for testing any other wireless technologies such as 5G, LTE, Bluetooth, Zigbee etc. as well.
We incorporate Spectrum Control’s multi-channel programmable attenuators to simulate the fading loss between the access point and the user devices. Each attenuator can be programmed to continually step to different values in a sequence, or even step between random values, replicating signal loss in a wireless environment.
The Spectrum Control Butler Matrix enables the user to connect multiple access points to multiple user-devices and provide an optimal channel condition to the devices under test.
Our RF test environment includes Spectrum Control’s digital Lab assistant to help manage test automation for “out of the box” testing of device performance including throughput, jitter, packet error rate vs range, device orientation, and other aspects of device performance.
