Azimuth Offers FMC Performance Test Solution

Azimuth Systems, which supplies Wi-Fi engineering test equipment, introduced an FMC Performance Test Solution featuring automated test scripts to streamline the testing of fixed-mobile convergence (FMC) products by service providers, handset manufacturers and semiconductor vendors.

Azimuth's solution provides more than twenty unique and repeatable performance tests on converged Wi-Fi/Cellular handsets. It measures Wi-Fi performance in three areas that get the most attention from end-users: dropped calls, battery life and call quality. The tests allow users to thoroughly analyze the voice quality and data performance of converged Wi-Fi/Cellular handsets in a variety of range, roaming, hand-in/hand-out and environmental conditions. The tests also measure handset power consumption and battery life under various motion and traffic conditions. The automated scripts remotely control the device under test, generate/display statistics and reduce the testing process from weeks to days.
