New Test Solution Greatly Simplifies Testing While Increasing Speed, Consistency
Keysight Technologies, Inc. announced that it is working with W2BI on a battery life test solution for UE acceptance. W2BI is an Advantest Group company and a global leader in wireless device test automation products. The test solution was developed in accordance with a number of test cases as defined within CTIA Battery Life Test Plan rev 1.0 and TS.09-v7.6.
The new test solution is based on real world end-user behavior and provides a consistent and efficient way to perform smartphone battery testing. The test solution is the result of collaboration between the two companies, where W2BI developed the scripts using Keysight’s UXM wireless test set and the Keysight N6705B DC power analyzer.
The announcement was made during the CTIA CPWG Battery Life Working Group Meeting, held in Santa Rosa, California, on July 14. CTIA-The Wireless Association, is an international nonprofit membership organization that has represented the wireless communications industry since 1984.
“We are delighted to have worked in close partnership with Keysight to implement advanced automation of the CTIA Battery Life Test Plan with orchestrated configuration across all major LTE, GSM, WCDMA, eHRPD and 1xRTT technologies,” said Derek DiPerna, president of W2BI. “Our solution greatly simplifies testing while increasing speed and consistency.”
“The collaboration with W2BI continues to extend the value of the UXM Wireless Test Set in addressing a wide variety of customers’ test needs,” said Satish Dhanasekaran, general manager of Keysight’s Mobile Broadband Operation of Keysight Technologies. “The power of our platforms, in combination with the test case automation from W2BI, provides a compelling reason for customers to select this solution. As the industry grapples with the challenge of making wireless devices more power efficient in the face of increasing data consumption, test solutions from Keysight and W2BI provide the tools that lead to greater insight in solving this challenging problem.”
