DURHAM, N.H. -- The University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL) has announced the launch of a comprehensive industry reference test bed for voice over wireless (VoWLAN) testing.

Building upon ongoing Wi-Fi testing and recent work in “triple play” (wireless voice, video and data), the UNH-IOL is combining a newly written VoWLAN test suite with its already extensive wireless test bed. The UNH-IOL test bed, comprising 138 wireless access points (APs) from 35 manufacturers, includes several shielded RF testing environments, open-air testing, Azimuth Systems’ W-Series 802.11 test platform and Veriwave WT1210 traffic generation and analysis. Additional resources include a walk-in radio frequency (RF) chamber and a battery of high-end call and signal generators and voice quality analyzers from leading manufacturers including Agilent, Empirix, Ixia, Navtel and Spirent.

“This test solution will combine cabled, shielded and open air test environments to give equipment vendors a confidential, accurate and unbiased test environment for the improved conformance and interoperability of their products,” said UNH-IOL VoX Consortium manager Gerard Goubert. “The combination of the VoWLAN test suite and our already well-established physical test bed allows companies to test against agreed upon standards as well as against current release products and legacy gear to compare how voice quality will stand in real-world, mixed network environments.”
