Azimuth Systems, Inc. Key Developments

Azimuth and Qosmotec Collaborate on Real-World Car-2-Car (C2C) Testing

Azimuth Systems, Inc. and Qosmotec announced a joint collaboration for developing a Car-to-Car (C2C) test solution. By combining Qosmotec’s signal strength emulator QPER with Azimuth’s ACE MX channel emulator, the solution simulates all traffic, mobility and channel aspects of a C2C environment. This solution enables realistic, and comprehensive C2C interoperability testing in the lab. Testing Car-to-Car communication in the lab requires the emulation of a significant number of radio links (each of which maps to a link between two cars), some links requiring primarily just attenuation and others requiring a complete radio channel. Qosmotec’s field strength emulator system provides the attenuation links for these tests; the field strength emulator offers a large number of configurable links that can be configured to reflect the different path loss between the cars. Azimuth’s ACE MX channel emulator complements this by emulating the complete radio channel (path loss, Doppler, propagation delay, AWGN etc.) for links that require a complete radio channel. The QPER-C2X software controls this integrated solution and provides a graphical interface to create and configure the physical environment and the traffic model.

Azimuth Systems Launches ACE RNX, the Easy-to-Use Radio Network Emulation Platform for LTE-Advanced

Azimuth Systems, Inc. announced general availability of the ACE™ RNX radio network emulation platform. ACE RNX has been purpose-built to support advanced testing configurations for Small Cells, HetNets, Carrier Aggregation, MU-MIMO, Full Dimension MIMO, 3D Beamforming and Advanced Antenna Systems. With superior ease of use as a central design tenet, the platform enables users to design complex wireless networks consisting of multiple cells with dynamic mobility paths, in a very easy-to-use drag and drop GUI, and then easily implement and execute complex multi-link test cases. It is a future-proofed platform designed to meet the testing challenges faced by the mobile ecosystem during the development, qualification, and deployment of next generation wireless technologies such as LTE-Advanced. Azimuth recognized that modern test labs would require tools and solutions for current challenges that also anticipated future needs and understood that the existing channel emulation tools on the market did not adequately address those requirements. For example, testbeds updated to support carrier aggregation may require 2x or 3x as many links as previously. This directly impacts required test resources and test cycle time for performance testing. RNX has been purpose built to simplify test set and execution for these multi-link test cases and may achieve 50% reductions in test time. With the ACE RNX, Azimuth now provides a platform that delivers on the performance and channel density the marketplace needs for accurate real-world wireless testing, while meeting the increasingly demanding requirements of modern test labs with a future-proofed design. The new ACE RNX is enabled by Azimuth’s Director 3™ software for test management and automation. Director 3 provides critical testing information for re-creation, visualization, troubleshooting and automation, making it the most robust and intuitive testing software suite of its kind in the industry. Azimuth is also introducing an innovative cloud based interfacewith SOAP automation in Director 3 that directly addresses the need for greater flexibility in managing testbeds and provides unmatched capabilities for remote access and control. Furthermore, the ACE RNX platform delivers RF fidelityrequired for testing LTE-Advanced along with features such as built-in real time fading. The platform supports industry standard models or user defined custom models that allow users to easily recreate a variety of typical MIMO scenarios for accurate performance and interoperability testing, with 128+ digital channels available through multiple scalable configurations.

Azimuth Announces VoLTE Support for Industry Leading Analytics and Automation Solution

Azimuth Systems, Inc. announced the addition of unique VoLTE support to their integrated analytics and automation toolset, DNA and DAC. VoLTE is one of the most challenging milestones in the ubiquitous adoption of LTE whereby voice and video can be sent over LTE's packet-based network while leveraging its substantial QoS and policy framework capabilities. VoLTE will no longer require bandwidth to be separately allocated for circuit switched traffic; it will instead allow operators to share capacity for voice, video and data. VoLTE is thus expected to be a key element in operators' LTE-based plans to offer high quality of service to consumers and monetize their investments with differentiated offerings. Azimuth's DAC and DNA solution for VoLTE delivers detailed per call as well as aggregated analytics and reporting for VoLTE deployments. Seamless integration of the DAC and DNA products ensures that Azimuth's solution for VoLTE provides rapid and effective test and analysis of VoLTE performance. This is essential in both deployment and post-deployment phases of VoLTE, to meet the quality expectations users have of a 4G service. Azimuth DAC and DNA toolset is Azimuth's platform for advanced VoLTE support. Device Automation & Control (DAC) enables unattended execution of user experience testing and logging for smartphones and other mobile devices. Device-Network Analytics (DNA) provides KPIs and analytics that enable device benchmarking and profiling, linking subscriber perceived performance to underlying device-network interaction and root cause analysis for both voice and video performance Azimuth DAC and DNA for VoLTE is unique in that it: Is the ONLY solution in the industry that intelligently ties the VoLTE SIP, RTP layer performance with the underlying LTE device-network interaction Unlike other solutions that show events across multiple layers as individual/disjointed events, DNA leverages advanced algorithms to synchronize events from different layers to provide a unified view that connects user performance to the underlying device-network interaction. Performance is typically reported for a statistically significant number of samples, however, common statistical analysis tools could underestimate the impact of outliers (VoLTE, unlike data, is very unforgiving). Integration of DAC automation allows for immensely valuable control, logging and analytics at a very granular level.
