Battery life test solution for UE acceptance
Keysight Technologies has announced that it is working with W2BI on a
battery life test solution for UE acceptance. W2BI is an Advantest Group
company and a global leader in wireless device test automation products. The
test solution was developed in accordance with a number of test cases as
defined within CTIA Battery Life Test Plan rev 1.0 and TS.09-v7.6.
The new test solution is based on real world end-user behaviour and provides
a consistent and efficient way to perform smartphone battery testing. The
test solution is the result of collaboration between the two companies,
where W2BI developed the scripts using Keysight's UXM wireless test set and
the Keysight N6705B DC power analyzer.
The announcement was made during the CTIA CPWG Battery Life Working Group
Meeting, held in Santa Rosa, California, on July 14. CTIA-The Wireless
Association, is an international non-profit membership organization that has
represented the wireless communications industry since 1984.
"We are delighted to have worked in close partnership with Keysight to
implement advanced automation of the CTIA Battery Life Test Plan with
orchestrated configuration across all major LTE, GSM, WCDMA, eHRPD and 1xRTT
technologies," said Derek DiPerna, president, W2BI. "Our solution greatly
simplifies testing while increasing speed and consistency."
"The collaboration with W2BI continues to extend the value of the UXM
Wireless Test Set in addressing a wide variety of customers' test needs,"
said Satish Dhanasekaran, general manager of Keysight's Mobile Broadband
Operation, Keysight Technologies. "The power of our platforms, in
combination with the test case automation from W2BI, provides a compelling
reason for customers to select this solution. As the industry grapples with
the challenge of making wireless devices more power efficient in the face of
increasing data consumption, test solutions from Keysight and W2BI provide
the tools that lead to greater insight in solving this challenging problem."
