PORTLAND, Ore. -- VeriWave, Inc., is expanding its industry-leading wireless LAN (WLAN) performance testing and analysis to address the early development stages of 802.11 -compliant devices. Its newly available WaveDynamix™ application makes VeriWave’s test solutions the first to extend from development through market introduction and live deployment of 802.11 networks. It allows developers to dramatically reduce the time to test for functional, integration, and field failure test cases.

The competitive nature and technical complexity of 802.11n wireless networks demands improved product quality and accelerated product delivery. Addressing this need, WaveDynamix offers developers unprecedented visibility into how new 802.11 devices will perform in live installations, early in the development cycle. Designed for developers of 802.11 chip-sets, drivers, management software, devices, and Access Points, WaveDynamix provides:

  • The ability to test the functionality, performance, and exception handling of the wireless hardware before the software is integrated

  • Step-by-step integration testing that facilitates the controlled progression and in-place troubleshooting of clients as they progress through the association and data transmission process

  • Determine failure causality through real-time control and results of all clients and traffic in the test bed

  • Concurrent generation and analysis of good traffic and attack traffic to validate protection mechanisms

“One of the biggest challenges facing developers of complex 802.11 networking devices is the inability to efficiently assess the quality and performance of a device before it is fully integrated,” says Glenn Chagnot, VeriWave’s Chief Architect. “WaveDynamix helps isolate and troubleshoot potential design issues, identifies exception and corner cases, and provides the granular testing that is necessary to gain insight into software readiness, timing, and overall performance earlier in the product development phase than has ever previously been possible.”
