Keysight offers test to certify wireless devices for unlicensed bands
To accelerate the certification of wireless devices that use the unlicensed bands at 2.4 and 5.0GHz, Keysight has introduced the IOT0047A regulatory test solution. Regulatory standards by European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) and Federal Communications Commission (FCC) are updated regularly to ensure wireless spectrums are used efficiently without interruptions. However, regulatory testing can be complex, time-consuming and costly, directly impacting project schedules and time to market for new products.
To address these challenges, the IOT0047A supports the latest regulatory standards with Wi-Fi 6E-ready hardware. Developers can futureproof their investment with software that is continuously updated according to the latest ETSI and FCC standard releases.
It also allows them to increase throughput and asset utilisation with a system that can scale into separate test stations and be used in parallel for different standards and test cases. It is expandable with add additional channels, software capabilities or standards coverage.
Keysight claims that development time can be reduced with purpose-built test automation software that simplifies and automates the testing cycle, from test configurations to report generation.
“Keysight’s IOT0047A enables labs to simplify the testing process, increase throughput and easily upgrade to support new standards,” said Boon Juan Tan, vice president and general manager, General Electronics Measurement Solutions at Keysight Technologies.
