CableLabs® Partners with Rohde & Schwarz to Meet Growing Market Demand for WiFi and IoT Device Compliance Testing

As the proliferation of WiFi enabled devices continues to increase, attention is shifting towards improved device quality and performance through industry compliance testing and certification. Today, many WiFi enabled devices exhibit inconsistent channel quality and radiated performance, which can significantly impact quality of experience.

Columbia, MD, September 10, 2015 – CableLabs, a non-profit R&D consortium dedicated to the development of innovative technologies that significantly impact its cable operator members‘ businesses, is committed to increasing the quality and security of WiFi enabled devices to meet the growing needs of cable operators around the world. For over-the-air (OTA) device testing and compliance, CableLabs has invested in the R&S TS8991 WPTC System that provides its members and device manufacturers with CTIA compliance and validation to ensure that WiFi enabled devices are network ready.

Carriers today are looking towards WiFi as an effective and efficient means by which to expand their network coverage and offload their wireless traffic. At the same time, carrier WiFi deployments must deliver the same quality of experience that customers have come to expect with mobile and fixed-line networks. To deliver this type of experience will require tighter integration in device-to-device, and device-to-network interactions, an objective directly addressed through the CTIA CWG test plan.

Previously, device manufacturers were not required to certify products for Over-the-Air (OTA) compliance. However, as devices have become more sophisticated and networks more numerous and crowded, the need for OTA compliance is now a necessity to ensure the overall quality of experience as expected in delivering carrier grade WiFi services. The R&S TS8991 WPTC System is used to confirm WiFi and IoT compliance and improve user quality of experience.

For more information about WiFi and IoT device compliance testing, visit Rohde & Schwarz at this year’s CTIA Super Mobility 2015. These test systems will be showcased at the Rohde & Schwarz booth (space #3249) and as part of the CTIA sponsored 5G Innovation Lab (space #4315).
