Octobox Automated Wireless Testbeds

Compact, stackable testbeds for automated validation of Wi-Fi 6 and 7, and 5G networks and devices.


What is Octobox

The Octobox testbed is a customizable set of isolated chambers and instruments for testing over-the-air (OTA) Wi-Fi 6, Wi-Fi 7 and legacy or 5G network equipment and devices by simulating real world environments such as interference, traffic, and mesh handover, in a stable, automated, repeatable testing environment. The system supports Wi-Fi IEEE 802.11 and TR-398 performance standards. The testbed is configured with multiple chambers to mimic conditions found in a home, office, and other environments and reduces wireless testing from weeks to hours.

Wireless Testing Made Easy

As wireless complexity surges and new, intensive use cases emerge, ensuring quality has never been more important or more difficult. Octobox testbeds are ready to automate critical performance tests right out of the box, featuring open APIs for rapid integration with other lab testing and automation systems.

Wireless Testbed Configurations

Compact, stackable testbeds for automated validation of Wi-Fi and 5G networks and devices.


Octobox testbeds are compact, stackable testing environments for evaluating the performance of Wi-Fi and 5G network equipment and devices. Choose from pre-configured, turnkey options such as STACK-MIN, STACK-MID, or STACK-MAX, or build your own testbed by selecting from our building blocks.

"Octobox is a new generation of small RF chambers and a major step up in terms of isolation, robustness and ease of use. Its solid construction, equipped with high-speed data filters, makes our test setup neat, easy to access and impervious to interference."
