Anritsu enables Verkotan to meet new IoT requirements for Over the Air Testing


Print Version

Luton, UK – December 7th, 2015 – Anritsu Corporation and Verkotan Oy are working together to enable support for the OTA (Over-The-Air) performance testing of wireless devices such as wearables and smart phones.

As the demand for Smart and IoT devices grows so too does the pressure on the active radio signals supporting those devices. This is due to the increased RF activity from the many different radio links that surround us in our daily life. And with that comes performance degradation issues due to interference, which is ultimately resulting in slow data rate performance, dropped connections and failed data sessions.

Verkotan Inc. is a CTIA accredited OTA (Over-The-Air) test house specializing in testing and analyzing the performance of wireless devices, which is helping to mitigate these problems with accurate testing during the product development phase. Based in Finland, Verkotan is the only accredited test house in the world with its own in-house developed test software. When used in conjunction with Anritsu’s equipment, this proprietary software makes Verkotan’s test system the fastest in the world. In addition, the software gives Verkotan the flexibility to create new and modify existing test cases in real time – something that its competitors cannot do.

“Verkotan’s in-house development of testing software and flexible testing equipment gives them an advantage especially when testing devices such as IoT and wearables that have no standards for wireless performance testing.” said Jonathan Borrill, Director of Engineering and Technology at Anritsu.

Verkotan chose Anritsu to provide the cellular and RF test equipment for their laboratories. “Anritsu testing equipment is a key part of our test solutions. We trust Anritsu, because their equipment was the fastest and the most optimal for OTA testing”, states Kari Komonen, CEO of Verkotan.
