octoScope Announces Availability of New octoBox Software Suite

·3-min read

octoBox software 2.0 brings new dashboard mode, improved graphics and multiPerf® traffic tool

LITTLETON, Mass., July 29, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--octoScope, a Spirent company and the leader in accurate, repeatable and automated wireless personal testbeds, today announced the release of octoBox software 2.0, a new version of the web user interface (UI) that controls octoBox testbeds.

To serve the rapid growth in work-from-home requirements and ever-accelerating demand for streaming entertainment services, the need for increasingly sophisticated Wi-Fi features such as OFDMA, MU-MIMO, mesh Wi-Fi and BSS has grown sharply. The ability to test these features before they can be launched to the market is vital.

The innovative octoBox software 2.0 brings important productivity updates that will reduce the time needed for testing. A new dashboard mode allows engineers to create test scenarios more easily, while better data visualization and plots make the results easier to interpret and communicate. Upgrades in octoScope’s multiPerf traffic generator make it possible to test with any device, while also adding improvements in the ability to measure delay and jitter. Tight synchronization of instruments in the testbed allow measurements of one-way delay along with in-depth statistics showing how that delay and other parameters vary over time.

The new software leverages the power of parallel databuses and processing built into all the octoBox testbeds, allowing them to be used for emulation of multipoint-to-multipoint test scenarios involving dozens of real devices, while providing real-time feedback of the test progress and results.

Fanny Mlinarsky, founder of octoScope, and Senior Vice President of Wi-Fi Products at Spirent, said "octoBox software 2.0 greatly improves the productivity of the wireless test engineer and solidifies octoScope’s position as the easiest to use testbed in the Wi-Fi industry."

About the octoBox personal wireless testbed

Stackable and configurable, octoBox personal testbeds are completely isolated from external interference and can be used at an engineer’s office or lab bench.

Each octoBox testbed is controlled by a dedicated Node.js web server accessible via a browser UI for manual control, or via REST API for test automation. The server provides the time base for the testbed and controls the built-in instruments, DUT configuration, traffic, and test flow. Test results are saved in a MongoDB database, enabling multiple teams to easily collaborate by sharing the test automation scripts and test results.

About octoScope

octoScope, a Spirent Company, is the market leader in isolated, repeatable and automated wireless personal testbeds. Our patented technology redefines the accuracy, stability, economics and value of over-the-air wireless testing. The octoBox testbed is configurable for automated regression test sequences with a range of airlink conditions and interference scenarios. The octoBox testbeds are scalable to support a single DUT or multi-node mesh systems under test.

The testbeds feature powerful technologies to evaluate the behavior and performance of a broad range of wireless devices and systems. The tested capabilities include protocol monitoring, test traffic generation, motion and multipath emulation, interference generation and device emulation.
