NB-IoT technology uses existing cellular network infrastructure to deliver excellent coverage and reliable connectivity. This approach is becoming adopted by major worldwide operators. OTA testing is critical for operators to qualify the interoperability and compliance of their NB-IoT devices. This is particularly important when a third-party enclosure is used with the device since the antenna coverage effects could be limited.
Verkotan provides the Narrowband-IoT wireless testing solutions and helps you to get your products to market faster with the right testing and insights to optimize your IoT designs.
Verkotan’s personnel is the frontrunner in the Narrowband-IoT wireless testing field. Our in-house capabilities allow us to offer you powerful test solutions to evaluate the performance of your IoT device.
Power consumption is an important factor in IoT device design. In an IoT application, the device must operate in different states, e.g. data acquisition, data transmission, and deep sleep. The length of these cycles is determined by its intended use case. The battery life of a device depends heavily on its purpose, whether it is necessary to transmit signals often or seldom. Some use cases require up-to-date, real-time data, so the device needs to be constantly transmitting. Whereas some use cases require transmissions very rarely.
We can perform pre-conformance IoT OTA testing for LTE-M & NB-IoT in our IoT testing chamber.
This laboratory can be used for 3GPP & SISO and pre-conformance MIMO Measurements. In this chamber, we are able to create a radio environment tailored to a client’s needs and test the device in a repeatable and reliable way. It is also utilized for 5G test system solution development and can be used for GNSS, WLAN, and IoT testing.
