CS8 Wireless Device Design Tester Addresses Needs of Developers
Sunnyvale, Calif.– October 24, 2011 — Spirent Communications, a leader in testing wireless networks, services and devices, today announced a new product offering for mobile device designers and developers. The Spirent CS8 Wireless Device Design Tester, targeted at engineers who design cellular phones, tablets, data cards and machine-to-machine cellular modules, bundles industry leading network emulation with innovative testing software and subject matter expertise into a package that addresses the needs of design engineers.
Spirent has established a global reputation for its wireless offerings, best known for highly automated testing systems used by manufacturers and network operators for design verification and acceptance testing of finished products.
“CS8 is about delivering our performance testing and rapid test case development technology, which until recently were available only in our network operator solutions, into the hands of the design engineer,” said Spirent vice-president Hesham ElHamahmy. “In fact, by offering purpose-specific software, interfaces and other components, this one platform can be used at every stage of the development process, from RF or baseband design to system-level DVT.”
Spirent’s Dr. Salim Manji added, “For example, the CS8’s Interactive Tester includes a network-grade Evolved Packet Core (EPC) that was originally developed to test 3G and 4G/LTE network equipment. Using the same EPC testing solution that is relied upon by infrastructure vendors to verify their network equipment provides immense advantages over using a fixed script-based EPC. First, it runs right out of the box, without requiring the user to spend weeks modifying scripts to control the network. Second, the implementation is very realistic, both in terms of latency and in the completeness of the message implementation.”
CS8 is available for RF/baseband design, protocol design, system DVT and chipset-platform testing. For more information on the solution visit www.spirent.com/Solutions-Directory/CS8
