Test systems vendor, Anite has announced the launch of its Mobile WiMAX Host Tester, which it says is the only Host Testing Solution available in the market for Mobile Station Stack developers and integrators.For mobile handset and base station developers, Anite’s Host Tester (HT) allows the user to test the protocol stack in isolation of any hardware. This has benefits in two principal development phases, pre-ASIC fabrication and during SW regression testing. Using the HT, the user reduces the risk of multiple chipset development turns by correcting potential problems in the pre-silicon protocol development stage, providing developers with the ability to test before the final chipset hardware is completed. During regression phases, new SW updates can be tested in Host mode to isolate whether problems have been introduced on the HW or SW. In addition to development tests, HT also supports Protocol Conformance Testing (PCT), a certification requirement of Mobile WiMAX as defined by the WiMAX Forum. HT supports data throughput testing and has loop-back functionality.
