Quality Measurements Meet Wireless Expertise

With the disaggregation of base station components, proprietary protocols have been replaced with standard interfaces. While this change has many positives for wireless network infrastructure, it also means these links need to be tested and require specialized in-the-loop tests and emulations. Also crucially important are the high-quality RF measurements that enable these test cases. By combining best-in-class RF performance with industry-leading expertise in wireless communications test, a collaboration with NI enables quality test solutions backed by decades of wireless industry experience.
