W2BI exhibiting 5G and IoT system-level test products at MWC 2018
Press release

W2BI, an Advantest Group company and a supplier of wireless device test automation products, is exhibiting its newest test automation products for the wireless electronics market at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, Spain from February 26 through March 1. Featured will be a new 5G test solution that enables both the network and the device ecosystems to emulate end-to-end use cases to meet interoperability requirements and gain insights into overall system behavior.

W2BI will highlight hands-on demonstrations of its test automation systems, including the first public debut of its 5G mmWave test system, which emulates both the 5G network and the device under test, helping to accelerate the R&D and time-to-market of 5G devices and modems. W2BI's new software-centric, end-to-end test system has both the scalability and flexibility to rapidly adapt in the fast-evolving 5G environment. The system integrates radio software layers, including packet core network and test automation management, with a physical layer mmWave transceiver system software-defined radio (SDR) to perform end-to-end, over-the-air 5G tests.

W2BI's new 5G mmWave test system gives operators as well as network and device vendors the ability to perform lab-environment verification of system interoperability, performance and functions, in a fully automated mode. The accelerated time-to-market benefits this technology provides is of key importance to our customers. W2BI recently delivered the initial phase of its 5G test system to a major mobile operator.

W2BI will also demonstrate its capability to support testing of LTE-M and NB-IoT devices using the highly scalable and portable Micro Line Tester (MLT). MLT leverages cloud technology to test smart devices and IoT technologies. The system lowers the cost of test during the development and production life cycles, provides a high level of scalability and supports 4G, 3G/2G, Wi-Fi, BT and NFC test features.
