octoScope introduced octoFade software, which includes a library that implements IEEE 802.11n standard channel models. The software library enables test equipment manufacturers and integrators to add channel emulation to test instruments used to test MIMO (up to 4×4) or conventional radios. Channel modeling is used for emulating real-life wireless environments in the lab to test wireless products, including 802.11n, 802.11ac and cellular/LTE radios, to assess radio performance in the presence of multipath and Doppler fading. octoFade software with IEEE 802.11n models is available now.
National Instruments announced the NI WLAN Measurement Suite 2.0 for IEEE 802.11n wireless LAN (WLAN) testing. The NI WLAN Measurement Suite 2.0 includes enhanced software toolkits for IEEE 802.11n WLAN signal generation and analysis. The suite integrates with NI 6.6 GHz PXI Express multichannel RF signal generators and analyzers to deliver true, phase-coherent multiple-input, multiple-output (MIMO) RF measurements required for IEEE 802.11n WLAN testing. The NI WLAN Measurement Suite for IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n is priced at $5,999 (euro 5,499; 840,000 yen).
