SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- August 15, 2017

LitePoint, a leading provider of wireless test solutions, today announced the
LitePoint IQcell™ multi-device cellular signaling test solution which enables
user experience testing of LTE cellular devices.

The IQcell is designed for mobile device original equipment manufacturers
(OEMs) to test performance of popular device uses such as mobile hotspot
functionality, voice-over-LTE (VoLTE) calling, internet browsing and streaming
videos. Testing for each of these applications is done via an over-the-air
connection that mimics true user experience scenarios. User experience is
critical for testing today’s incredibly complex devices and ensures that the
device will work in customer hands as designed, under every day usage.

IQcell provides a fast, efficient method to pinpoint the root cause of
failures reported by a user so device repair service centers can use IQcell
and IQservice software to perform RF parametric testing on phones returned by
customers. This enables device makers and carriers to repair faulty phones and
reduce the cost of replacing easily repaired phones with new ones.

“User experience is key to a device’s success and the IQcell helps OEMs and
service centers see what a user sees instead of trying to translate some
parametric measurements into a user’s actual experience with the product,”
said Adam Smith, Director of Product Marketing at LitePoint. “We are
constantly seeking to improve the testing experience making it faster and less
expensive so that more devices can be cost effectively tested. With IQcell,
we’ve reduced the time and cost of test so that device makers don’t have to
risk product quality because they can quickly and efficiently complete a
variety of signaling tests on multiple devices simultaneously.”

Technical Highlights

Available in 2-port and 8-port configurations, IQcell supports LTE-FDD,
LTE-TDD, WCDMA/HSPA and GSM. The IQcell 2-port configuration enables rapid
diagnostic of IoT device cellular radio quality and the automated test system
detects the cellular radio capability by running a pre-defined set of test
cases.

The IQcell 8-port configuration increases test capacity with up to four
devices running concurrently on four separate cells and each cell has a
dedicated measurement system for high speed, high accuracy, technology
specific parametric measurements.

IQcell is available today. For more information, visit
