Anite introduces Virtual Drive Testing Toolset with simulated network support
Anite has introduced simulated network support to its Virtual Drive Testing Toolset (VDT Toolset), to enable users to cost-effectively benchmark mobile devices in a controlled laboratory environment.
VDT Toolset is claimed to accelerate product rollouts and quality assurance testing by faithfully reproducing real network conditions in the laboratory. The system offers the industry’s most realistic radio frequency (RF) and network simulations, which enables mobile operators and device manufacturers to perform a larger portion of device testing in the laboratory compared to in the field. This approach leads to significant cost-savings in both the development and deployment phases.
Anite’s virtual drive test solution uses network signalling and RF propagation log data, captured in the field using drive test tools, to recreate a realistic mobile device performance testing environment in the laboratory. It leverages a wide range of Anite IP and products including the Propsim F32 Channel Emulator to create a highly innovative field-to-lab solution for cost-effective benchmarking of mobile devices.
Paul Beaver, the products drector at Anite’s Device & Infrastructure Testing business, commented: “The introduction of Anite’s innovative Virtual Drive Testing Toolset solution with simulated network support is very exciting as it enables mobile operators and device manufacturers as well as the wider industry an effective way of validating their products prior to market introduction.”
