OctoScope - OctoBox MPE

 

802.11n/ac无线流量测试平台

 

octoScope公司所生产的octoBox™无线测试平台提供研发,品管和生产测试单位,对于2G/3G/4G和802.11产品和系统所需要的测试设备。octoBox是用于测试无线设备和系统的一个小型可堆栈的消声(anechoic)测试平台。它为待测物隔离来自外部的干扰,并创建一个稳定的环境来实现可重复的性能测量。工程师可以使用octoBox测试平台来测量802.11ac或4G MIMO设备的吞吐量。octoBox测试台也可以被配置来进行Video over Wi-Fi 的测试,mesh testing (self-forming, self-healing functions of a mesh), 以及高速漫游和其他无线的测试。octoBox可用于测试Wi-Fi,2G/3G/4G,蓝牙和GPS等设备。它提供了多流MIMO吞吐量理想的条件下,支持700 MHz的工作频率到6 GHz。新推出的octoBox MPE(多路径仿真器)802.11n/ac流量无线测试平台。可模拟典型家庭或办公室的无线射频传播条件,并因此可在真实的具重复性可控制的实验室条件下,来测试802.11 n/ac Wi-Fi产品的最大流量。

 

The company manufactures octoBox™ wireless testbeds for R&D, QA and production testing of 2G/3G/4G and 802.11 devices and systems. octoBox is a small stackable anechoic testbed used for testing wireless devices and systems. It isolates the devices under test from the outside interference and creates a stable environment for achieving repeatable throughput measurements. Engineers use the octoBox testbed to measure throughput of the new 802.11ac or 4G MIMO devices.  octoBox testbed can also be configured for video over Wi-Fi testing, mesh testing (self-forming, self-healing functions of a mesh), high speed roaming and other wireless tests. octoBox can be used for testing Wi-Fi, 2G/3G/4G, Bluetooth GPS and other devices.  It offers ideal conditions for multi-stream MIMO throughput and supports the operating frequencies from 700 MHz to 6 GHz.  In a typical throughput testbed being used for benchmarking by SmallNetBuilder.com, two octoBox chambers house wireless devices in the link under test. The DUT (device under test) is placed into the top chamber and coupled to the Master device over the air through a 4x4 MIMO test antenna array.

  • Octoscope 重新定义了三种个人化的配置,符合高精度、可重覆性及全自动化无线测试需求
    Octoscope做为无线测试的领先厂商,近期定义了三种新的配置,分别为Stack-Benchtop, Stack-16及Stack-SNB。Octoscope提供小型化的屏蔽箱,大小可以从一台电脑的尺寸到一台电冰箱的尺寸,能够取代传统的屏蔽房,让更多工程师能方便的搭建,并同步测试结果。

    三种主要的配置如下:

    Stack-Benchtop 提供了最小型化的尺寸,能做方向性、抗干扰测试、穿墙、吞吐量、实时空口监听、漫游、频段切换(Band steering)、抓包等功能。

    Stack-16主要是为测试最佳吞吐量而设计,屏蔽箱里带有16根高增益天线可以实现最大吞吐量量测。

    Stack-SNB主要是遵循SmallNetBuilder的测试规范,实现方向性、穿墙、漫游、频段切换等吞吐量测试,以及Mesh网络测试。

  • octoBox quadAtten – DC to 6000 MHz
    Module with 4 programmable RF attenuators individually controllable via USB or Ethernet/PoE – 63 dB range * 0.5 dB step

    octoBox(R) quadAtten module contains 4 individually programmable RF attenuators. quadAtten offers the best RF isolation on the market, making it suitable for highly controlled octoBox wireless testbed environment. While off-the-shelf attenuators have to be internally mounted due to inadequate isolation, octoBox quadAtten module mounts externally for easy access. Each of the 4 attenuators can be individually controlled via USB or Ethernet/PoE.

  • Programmable interference generator emulates Wi-Fi traffic and interference waveforms, including radar

    The octoBox iGen module is used to create realistic interference conditions for testing wireless devices and systems. iGen supports 802.11a/b/g/n/ac with the ability generate traffic interference or broadband waveform interference. Waveform interference generation includes radar waveform for DFS (dynamic frequency selection) testing, cordless phones, Bluetooth, microwave ovens, baby monitors and other sources of interference. Traffic can be configured for specific load, channel frequency, channel width or priority.

  • The Pal is the brains of the octoBox testbed. Like a Swiss army knife, the Pal provides a broad range of important test functions, including throughput testing of access points and client devices, expert analysis, packet capture, traffic and interference generation. The key value of the Pal is that in addition to having a real chipset with the latest full protocol implementation, it can also be configured as an expert test instrument, emulating virtual stations.
    Designed to perform a variety of complex tests, these versatile testbeds incorporate other building blocks in the octoScope product line, including the quadAtten(R) programmable attenuator, iGen(R) interference generator, MPE2 multipath emulator, and browser based test control software suite with a comprehensive API for extensive test automation.
    “The octoBox testbed makes it possible to run through a series of MIMO-OTA throughput and complex mesh tests in hours vs. the days it would take in a real house,” said Tim Higgins, Principal of SmallNetBuilder.com. “It also provides capabilities unavailable in a real house, including highly controllable test network topology, signal levels and motion emulation,” Higgins added.
    “The octoBox offers several important advantages over the conventional walk-in isolation chambers. Being a configurable multi-chamber system with built-in instruments, it can run a variety of tests from a simple throughput vs. range test to a complex multi-node system test or a roaming test,” said Craig Shabot, Wireless Consortium Technical and Operations Manager at UNH InterOperability Lab. “Our test services including performance and compliance testing, heavily rely on the octoBox test platform with its test automation capabilities.”
