Azimuth Systems Press Release - March 1, 2011
with Unrivaled Capabilities - Only Solution Available that Provides Full End-to-End Automation for the Entire Testbed
ACTON, MA – March 1, 2011 - Azimuth Systems Inc., a leading provider of wireless channel emulators and targeted test solutions, today announced that it has added several cutting-edge new features to its trusted Azimuth Field-to-Lab™ (FTL) solution that were previously unavailable in the testing marketplace, designed to help customers improve product quality and reduce time to market.
Azimuth’s Field-to-Lab solution provides a test environment that is closer to the “real world” than ever before. It is the first in the industry that allows users to automate the entire testbed by using Azimuth’s DIRECTOR II Test Builder, a modular, intuitive, non-programming environment which allows even novice users to automate testing. Test Builder is integrated with DIRECTOR II to create a logical flow in the sequence of events, ensuring a seamless user experience with modular automation tools that are extremely easy-to-use. The Azimuth Field-to-Lab automation architecture facilitates sharing of automation modules not only within individual companies, but also across entire ecosystems, driving consistency in the way things are tested -- and providing more reliable and repeatable results.
Since its initial launch in February, 2010, Azimuth’s revolutionary Field-to-Lab solution has helped bridge the gap between laboratory and field-measured test results more effectively than ever before by allowing dynamically-changing RF conditions collected by drive test scanners/tools to be replayed in the laboratory through the company’s ACE™ MX Universal MIMO channel emulator. Leading operators, handset vendors, infrastructure and chipset manufacturers from the entire 2G, 3G and 4G ecosystems use Azimuth Field-to-Lab to reduce time to market, save money and improve product quality. Now, the Field-to-Lab solution has been enhanced with additional features, available immediately, to offer even greater benefits to the users.
New features include:
With the Azimuth Field-to-Lab solution, R&D and QA engineers can augment current test conditions- testing products not only using industry standard models, but with real-world conditions from actual field data collected from locations of interest. Field-to-Lab also helps customers in optimizing their networks and debugging post deployment issues by collecting logs from problem areas and recreating these conditions in the lab.
Additionally, Azimuth has enhanced the ACE MX MIMO channel emulator to enable users to test 3GPP carrier aggregation (R10 and R11) scenarios with very little effort, making the ACE MX channel emulator the platform of choice for LTE-A testing due to its superior RF characteristics and support for higher order MIMO topologies, beamforming and complex transmission schemes.
