Aeroflex, AT4 Test WiMax
The Development Test Mode for the WiMAX 802.16e protocol conformance test solution enables the creation and execution of test case campaigns along with the production and analysis of test reports and logs. It also facilitates source level debugging with single stepping and break points and provides the ability to edit, save and compile test cases. The Development Test Mode for the WiMAX 802.16e protocol conformance test solution also gives developers early access to WiMAX test procedures and purposes through a series of example test cases including network entry and initialisation, ranging, updating channel descriptions, multicast and broadcast services, quality of service, MAC support for H-ARQ, DL CINR reporting, sleep and idle modes, and MAC layer handover procedures. These example test cases can be replaced by the formal ETSI test cases as they become available.
“The interest in WiMAX 802.16e is huge,” said Paul Argent, director of infrastructure products for Aeroflex Test Solutions, Wireless Division. “The Development Test Mode for the protocol conformance test solution that we are developing jointly with AT4 wireless on behalf of the WiMAX Forum satisfies the need for an early test capability amongst the technology leaders. By progressively delivering the WiMAX 802.16e protocol conformance test capability in multiple phases, as outlined in our roadmap back in April 2006, we are ensuring that WiMAX product developers can meet the aggressive timescales the WiMAX Forum has targeted for the deployment of functional WiMAX systems.”
