Application Notes

  • octoBox Throughput Test Application Note
    Automated test controls the octoBox turn table and RF attenuators to measure throughput of a MIMO link.
    The octoBox throughput testbed supports up to a 4x4 802.11 MIMO link using any width channels, including 160 MHz. Devices in the testbed are completely isolated from one another and from external interference – industry best isolated testbed. The OB-THROUGHPUT software automates the throughput test by programming octoScope’s quadAtten RF attenuators, turn table and IxChariot software. Results are compiled in the CSV format for plotting with a preconfigured Excel template.
  • octoBox Roaming/Handover Test Application Note
    Automated test that uses RF attenuators to create physical layer conditions for roaming; supports Wi-Fi and cellular test networks A stack of 3 octoBoxes can be configured as a roaming testbed with the OB-ROAMING software controlling test traffic and programmable attenuators to create conditions for the roaming events. The same testbed can also be used to measure throughput vs. range.
