Spirent unveils new wireless connectivity test system

Telecom Lead America: Test and measurement major Spirent
Communications has launched the Spirent GSS5300 to address functional
testing of wireless devices on manufacturing lines and in service/repair


The company has developed the Spirent GSS5300 for rapid
simultaneous functional testing of up to 2 wireless-enabled devices with
multiple RF interfaces, including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, FM and NFC.


The new wireless test system can also operate with
Spirent GNSS constellation simulators to test GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, and QZSS


Spirent’s GSS5300 provides a new approach, replacing the
existing parametric method that is becoming over-complex, slow and outdated for
testing wireless connectivity technologies,” said John Pottle, marketing director
at Spirent’s positioning technology line of business.


The new platform can also be used with Spirent’s new
GSS6300M multi-GNSS simulator, which enables testing of fundamental GNSS
receiver functionality including time to first fix, sensitivity and accuracy on
the manufacturing line.


The company said functional testing of a wireless device
is a rapid test method for the manufacturing line, and Spirent’s GSS5300
provides repeatable testing against full signaling conditions.


By following a parallel testing approach, customers can
test multi-radio devices in shorter times, greatly improving manufacturing line


Spirent incorporates Epitiro technology


A few months back, Spirent Communications selected
Epitiro as its technology partner. The partnership allows Spirent to
incorporate Epitiro’s technology into the Spirent Test Center
Live solution.


The integration of technologies will provide IP network
performance measurements from mobile smartphones and fixed line
