Fading Simulations for Handover Testing Enhanced by USB Digital Attenuators
Newburyport, MA – January 26, 2017 –
Vaunix Technology Corporation, a manufacturer of
USB controlled and powered test equipment, recently produced an insightful technical brief discussing
handover/handoff testing using
USB-based digital attenuators for complex and scalable fading simulations.
Traditional fading simulations have relied upon complex and expensive
single-box testers, which are ultimately limited by the number of ports, internal hardware, and proprietary
and inflexible software. Other methods for enabling fading simulations may also involve an array of
manual or programmable attenuators set to operate in a timed sequence. However, these methods fail to
provide the necessary level of reconfigurability, low costs, and ease of setup/control offered by modular
and efficient USB-based digital attenuators.
The tech brief details the critical aspects of handover/handoff testing, and how recent technological
advances have dramatically increased the complexity of such testing. The new height of handover/handoff
testing also includes mixed wireless standards, such as cellular-to-WiFi and vice versa, as well as
an expanded need for more fading channels.
Lastly, the brief explains how cost, time, and flexibility can all be improved with cutting-edge,
USB-based digital attenuators. Vaunix has been producing such attenuators, and recently expanded attenuator
well over a decade and has extreme confidence in the quality and ability of its products to help achieve
efficiency and success for its customers.
