MUNICH -- The new WLAN Protocol Tester R&S PTW70 from Rohde & Schwarz is a versatile test platform for the development, integration and verification of wireless local area network (WLAN) systems and components in accordance with the IEEE 802.11 standard. Various measurement and display modes, automated test sequences and a clear-cut graphical user interface make working with the test instrument easy. With the R&S PTW70 - which is also operable by remote control - manufacturers of WLAN components, test houses and operators of WLAN systems can check compliance with the standard and identify error sources in every phase of product development and approval and when setting up networks.

The implementation of wireless WLAN networks is in full swing worldwide. Rohde & Schwarz will present a new WLAN protocol tester for manufacturers of WLAN components, terminals or systems, WLAN operators and system integrators. The R&S PTW70 contains all the required test routines and simulations for WLAN according to the 802.11 standard. In addition to pure function testing, the tester can even simulate typical errors and incompatibilities in WLAN systems to determine how the DUT responds in the event of an error. This presently unique function is indispensable especially for developers.

The WLAN Protocol Tester R&S PTW70 offers a wide range of test possibilities, from the physical protocol layer to the MAC layer to the application layer. The instrument consists of a measurement unit and a PC controller. The two components are connected either directly or networked via Ethernet. The measurement site and the workstation can thus be at separate locations. The R&S PTW70 is configured and operated via a clear-cut graphical user interface. The PC controller is also used to collect and evaluate the measurement data. Users compile and control their own customized test sequences on the script interface. As the R&S PTW70 can also be integrated into existing test environments, typical test sequences can be automated.
