Azimuth Introduces Intelligent Over-The-Air (iOTA) Platform, Opening Up The Next Frontier for Mobile Device Lab Testing
Dec 5 13
Azimuth Systems, Inc. announced the evolution of its over-the-air test platform, developed to measure and analyze performance of mobile devices in their native states, under real-world conditions. Intelligent Over-The-Air (iOTA) revolutionizes lab testing by enabling device performance to be tested through the complete radio frequency (RF) chain under highly configurable scenarios, including playback of data from drive routes to emulate actual and familiar network conditions. In addition to traditional throughput tests, iOTA also includes application automation to run test cases simulating typical subscriber usage. While most solutions in the industry stop at running the test, iOTA provides end-to-end functionality by allowing users to precisely correlate user experience results with network information for enhanced root cause isolation. Azimuth's over-the-air platform has been accepted in a Tier 1 operator's mobile device test plan, and in the labs of the top global device OEMs. Azimuth is also actively participating in the standards process for over-the-air performance testing. As mobile networks become more complex--with the deployment of MIMO, carrier aggregation, and HetNet--so are the devices connecting to them. Both the network environment and device utilization need to be represented as precisely as possible to deliver meaningful, repeatable test results. Traditionally, testing of mobile devices in the lab occurs in conducted mode, whereby the RF port of the device is opened and connected to the testbed via a cable. This method has delivered sufficiently accurate results but has always ignored the impact on performance of a critical component of the device: the antenna. Over-the-air testing entails running the same type of tests but with network information delivered through the antenna, with the device in a shielded chamber to enable more control over environmental factors. iOTA further augments traditional over-the-air testing, by: going beyond antenna measurements typical of standard OTA solutions, to benchmark multiple devices and predict performance in market; replaying network conditions captured during drive testing for more relevant scenarios; applying application automation and network profiling analytics to enable correlation of user experience with network conditions; utilizing a portable chamber that can be reconfigured for alternative test cases in minutes rather than days.
Azimuth Systems, Inc. Introduces First Integrated Automation and Analytics Toolset Purpose-Built for LTE Device
Sep 4 13
Azimuth Systems, Inc. introduced the first integrated automation and analytics toolset purpose-built for LTE device profiling and benchmarking, to support mobile operators, device manufacturers and their ecosystem partners in measuring and analyzing device performance for pre-launch quality assurance and in-market troubleshooting. Device Automation & Control (DAC) enables unattended execution of user experience testing and logging on smartphones and other mobile devices. In its latest revision, DAC integrates with Azimuth's new Diagnostics & Analytics (DnA) software, which processes and visualizes the user experience KPIs and device logs to compare performance between devices, generate pass-fail-warning alerts based on criteria set by the user, elegantly link performance KPIs to underlying conditions, and produce offline reports for further analysis and presentation. The mobile user experience is driven by a complex series of interactions between networks, devices, services and applications, all of which are tested prior to products being introduced to the market. The industry is undertaking an unprecedented number of technology changes at each of these layers, forcing increases in the scope of testing, when industry participants are already faced with competitive pressure to reduce time to market. Mobile operators also need to ensure that new devices do not have adverse impacts on their networks. And budget constraints are being felt across the mobile ecosystem. DAC and DnA provide streamlined, end-to-end testing and analysis of mobile performance, starting with user experience at the application level, through to network conditions as captured in comprehensive logs. In lab or field testing, a consistent test plan can be configured and saved, multiple devices can be tested under the same plan and conditions, post-processing can begin while testing is still in progress, and issues can be highlighted along with potential root causes. Reports containing analysis as well as supporting logs can be shared across organizations -- including between lab and field teams, and between operators, manufacturers and their partners. By reducing the time it takes to conduct testing across a wide range of scenarios, to process results and pinpoint issues, and to share them across organizational boundaries, this automation and analytics toolset enables device test teams to address growing requirements with greater efficiency than existing solutions.
Azimuth Systems, Inc. and JDS Uniphase Corporation Collaborate on Intelligent Subscriber-Centric Solutions for Mobile Performance Testing
May 20 13
Azimuth Systems, Inc. and JDS Uniphase Corporation announced a collaboration to answer the mobile industry's call for more efficient, effective and end-to-end test solutions. Azimuth's Field-to-Lab(TM) system replays live-network radio environments by parsing captures and logs from the JDSU E6474A RANAdvisor. By more closely approximating the conditions experienced in actual network environments in the lab, the solution has been proven to reduce field test costs by up to thirty percent. Azimuth's Device Automation & Control further augments testing by exercising functions critical to the subscriber experience, enabling end-to-end visibility from application to device to network. This partnership supports JDSU's strategy of bringing real-world conditions from operational networks to enhance customer lab testing, delivering advanced insight before the customer experiences the new services under test.
