WLAN Test

"Using the software-designed NI PXI vector signal transceiver and the NI WLAN Measurement Suite, we improved test speeds by more than 200 times compared to traditional rack-and-stack instruments while significantly improving test coverage."

- Doug Johnson - Qualcomm Atheros

With the NI WLAN Measurement Suite, you can perform common IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/j/p/ac measurements with industry-leading speed and accuracy. Combined with high-performance multicore processors, PXI Express wireless local area network (WLAN) measurement systems can complete most 802.11 measurements five to 10 times faster than traditional box instruments. In addition, using phase-coherent multichannel RF instruments, you can improve the measurement accuracy of your multiple input, multiple output (MIMO) designs. All WLAN test systems are flexible and software-defined, and can test a wide range of wireless connectivity, cellular, and navigation standards including FM/RDS, Bluetooth, GSM/EDGE, WCDMA/HSPA+, CDMA2000/EVDO, LTE, GPS/GNSS, and more.


National Instruments modular hardware and graphical software tools can help decrease the cost and increase the flexibility of wireless local area network (WLAN) test.
