3 Common Pitfalls of 802.11ax DVT Testing You Should Avoid
November 8, 2017
As more 802.11ax chipsets are starting to become available in the market, Wi-Fi device makers, ranging from IoT startups to enterprise access point makers, are gearing up to rapidly adopt this high-efficiency next-generation Wi-Fi in their products. 802.11ax promises to dramatically increase the overall network capacity and bring the much-anticipated optimized throughput in crowded user environments saturated with Wi-Fi devices. But with great new technology comes great responsibility. To truly meet user expectations for 802.11ax’s reliable throughput in the real world, device makers must plan design verification tests (DVT) to thoroughly cover the many test scheme permutations that are unique to 802.11ax. Compared to legacy Wi-Fi, 802.11ax DVT testing greatly increases the effort and time spent on test designs, data collection and analysis, yet the pressure to reduce the time-to-market remains high. Join us for a webinar to learn about the pitfalls you need to avoid when designing your 802.11ax test experiments, and how you can optimize the time needed to bring your devices from ideas and prototypes to the final products in your customers’ hands.
Transitioning to a 5G World: Evolving Testing to Meet Operators’ Needs
November 8, 2017
Expected 5G spectrum utilization means major engineering and design challenges: very high frequencies and large channels, with high expectations for performance. Vendors, operators and government initiatives are testing 5G technologies to better understand and address the challenges of the next-generation of technology. This RCR webcast, featuring LitePoint’s Jeorge Hurtarte, examines 5G trials and testbeds, R&D work and how the test industry is supporting the evolution to 5G.

Connecting the IoT…and Other Fun Ways to Make a Really Bad Product
October 31, 2017
LitePoint presents another webcast packed with all the information you need to know about the complexities of testing the newest wireless technologies. Whether for industrial or consumer applications, connecting “things” requires a reliable, high quality wireless connection. The cost of poor quality can range from brand damage to safety or liability concerns. Join us for this session in which we will explore some best-practices and cautionary tales in the ever-changing and exponentially-expanding space of connected devices.
5G Heterogeneous Networks & Implications on RF Test Webcast
October 3, 2017
5G promises the convergence of local and wide area networks for seamless reliable, low latency and high-throughput connectivity. Heterogeneous networks will include 4G, 4G LTE, and 5G macro cells operating in the commonly-used sub-6 GHz bands, as well as 5G small cells and Wi-Fi in both sub-6 GHz and in new mmWave bands. 5G cellular WANs will provide enhanced mobile broadband speeds of up to 1 Gbps while Wi-Fi mmWave promises speeds in excess of 20 Gbps. In addition, with latencies of less than 10 ms, the end user will have the perception of being always connected and connection status changes will be instantaneous. These network characteristics will enable new endless use cases including enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB), massive machine-type communications (mMTC), ultra-reliable low latency communications (URLLC) – all within a platform for cloud- and artificial intelligence-based services spanning from consumer to industrial to automotive applications. This webcast provides an overview of the 5G heterogeneous network components, their characteristics, the resulting use cases possible, and the implications on RF test. From an mmWave test perspective, it means that band-specific instrument architectures will be required to address a variety of frequency bands and higher bandwidths, and radiated signal delivery techniques for massive MIMO and beamforming tests will be needed. Watch this webcast to learn about the forefront of 5G RF and mmWave test solutions.
