Littleton, Massachusetts, January 15, 2018 — octoScope, the leader in accurate, repeatable and automated wireless testbeds, today announced the participation of their CTO Leigh Chinitz in the IEEE ComSoc Webinar.

Next generation 5G networks are expected to represent a major change in wireless communications. 5G encompasses a number of different application areas, including enhanced mobile broadband, mission critical services, and the massive Internet of Things. One commonality across these is that they will all contain a lot of new “things”. Estimates are that the IoT requires the ability to support 10-100x the number of devices supported by today’s networks. This leads to many questions, including “who is going to create all these devices,” and “how are they going to work together,” and “how are they going to be tested?”

“We will explore the implications of a dramatic increase in the number of wireless devices and developers on the wireless environment and product testing,” explains CTO of octoScope, Leigh Chinitz “We’ll also discuss the impact on Wi-Fi of the emerging 5G mmWave and IoT technologies, and new test methods needed to validate devices operating on, and roaming among, 5G/4G and Wi-Fi networks.”

The “Moving From Testing the Internet of Thing Towards the Internet of Tested Things” webinar will be held online on January 16, 2018 at 12:00 PM Eastern Time (ET); 9:00 AM Pacific Time (PT). Registration for the event is available here.
