Kyrio uses octoBox wireless personal testbed

Dec. 13, 2017

Littleton, MA (PRWEB). octoScope today announced Kyrio will use octoScope’s octoBox personal testbeds in its testing services.

“Kyrio works with customers who are dedicated to connecting people, places and devices,” said Mitch Ashley, president and general manager of Kyrio, adding that “…the octoBox personal testbeds help us characterize the performance of wireless devices under different test conditions.”

As an independent and vendor-neutral testing laboratory, Kyrio offers services to support a variety of industries to deliver reliable and interoperable end-user performances. With the addition of the octoBox personal testbeds, Kyrio is now able to help device manufacturers thoroughly and economically refine their products to produce top performances.

“As wireless systems become more and more complex, the amount of testing required to understand the quality of the device grows exponentially,” said Wylie Nelson, vice president of wireless and testing for Kyrio. “The octoBox is both flexible and powerful, so we can simulate multiple different clients or access points and test different types of interference.”

“The octoBox testbed can reduce the time it takes to run through a series of MIMO-OTA throughput and complex mesh tests from days to hours,” said Leigh Chinitz, CTO of octoScope. “In addition to measuring the throughput of the new 802.11ac or 4G MIMO devices, it gives engineers a great deal of flexibility and control over the level of testing they do. Our software interface allows engineers to easily select a test, specify how long they want it to run, set the level of attenuation, and choose the number of data points they want to collect per rotation.”

The octoBox product line includes the STACK-BENCHTOP, STACK-16, and STACK-SNB personal testbeds, which emulate real-life wireless environments and range in size from a desktop/benchtop model to refrigerator-sized testbeds on wheels. The compact size of the octoBox enables wireless test and development engineers to perform fast, comprehensive and repeatable testing without the need for large isolation chambers.
