Regulatory test solution for devices in unlicenced wireless bands

28 July 2021 Test & Measurement

Keysight Technologies announced the new Keysight IOT0047A regulatory test solution, which enables customers to accelerate the certification of wireless devices that use the unlicenced bands at 2,4 and 5 GHz and achieve time-to-market goals.

Wireless connectivity plays an important role in a hyperconnected IoT world and every wireless device is subjected to comprehensive regulatory testing before it can enter the market. Wireless technologies are evolving rapidly to meet demanding IoT application needs. Regulatory standards by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in the USA, for example, are updated regularly to ensure that wireless spectra are used efficiently without interruptions. However, regulatory testing can be complex, time consuming and costly, directly impacting project schedules and time to market for new products.

To address these challenges, the IOT0047A enables customers to stay ahead of the competition with support for the latest regulatory standards with Wi-Fi 6E-ready hardware. It also allows them to futureproof their investment thanks to flexible software that is continuously updated according to the latest ETSI and FCC standard releases.

Increased throughput and asset utilisation can be achieved with this system which can easily scale into separate test stations and can be used in parallel to address different standards and test cases. Its expandability means that the system can be upgraded as needs evolve, by adding additional channels, software capabilities or standards coverage.

Turnaround time can be reduced and process efficiency improved with purpose-built test automation software that simplifies and automates the testing cycle, from test configurations to report generation.
