Address wireless device critical test challenges

The Wireless Test Station is an advanced network emulator that addresses complex interoperability challenges across LTE, 3G, and Wi-Fi for carriers, chipset, handset, and OEM device vendors. Incorporating dual independent cells and a Wi-Fi access point, it enables test teams to evaluate end-to-end performance across multiple devices and technologies, and brings comprehensive and real-world IMS, RCS, voice, and video testing into the lab.

What to test


Device-to-device interoperability

Functional and performance testing of voice and video over LTE and Wi-Fi across different device vendors, device versions and carriers


VoLTE and RCS functional tests

Evaluation of a single device performance for IMS, VoLTE and RCS feature functionality and protocol messaging and signaling


Parallel devices

Reduce overall test time by testing the same or similar conditions on different devices simultaneously


IMS/RCS conformance

Coverage of industry-compliance tests originating from operators and standards organizations


LTE/3G/Wi-Fi mobility

Test offload and roaming scenarios between LTE (FDD and TDD), 3G UMTS, and Wi-Fi networks for functionality and call performance


Effects of real-world conditions

Embedded IP impairments on both the uplink and downlink closely resemble live network scenarios

Features & Benefits

Dual cellular radios
Co-location of two cells with independent configurations enables device-to-device LTE (FDD+TDD, including FDD 2CC carrier aggregation), UMTS, and Wi-Fi interoperability testing on one instrument.
Carrier modeling
Network emulation is pre-configured and selectable for major carriers’ networks and easily customizable as needed, including IMS modeling.
Embedded IP impairments
Replicate impairments such as packet loss, jitter, and latency on both the uplink and downlink to comprehensively test device behavior during real-world network conditions. Can integrate with an external fader for additional RF impairments.
Accurate VoLTE representation
Enables true and accurate representation of IMS call set up at all stack levels including configuring QoS for VoLTE service.
Easy-to-use and access
Web-enabled user interface allows internet access from anywhere; users can reserve resources as needed for dedicated test time.
