PCTEL testing capabilities enhance performance of Wi-Fi access devices

PCTEL, Inc. (Nasdaq:PCTI), a provider of Performance Critical TELecom solutions, has announced the opening of a wireless system performance lab at its Bloomingdale headquarters, the company said.

There is high demand for increased Wi-Fi throughput and device-level performance verification for enterprise, residential, and industrial IoT applications. Additionally, Industrial IoT devices must meet strict certification standards prior to connecting to LTE and other wireless carrier networks. PCTEL´s wireless system performance lab provides performance testing for Wi-Fi access points, including client-side throughput testing. The lab also provides cellular device testing capabilities that address key requirements for carrier certification.

The wireless system performance lab complements PCTEL´s existing embedded systems design, integration, and testing capabilities. The company´s engineers will use the lab to evaluate and optimize the performance of Wi-Fi access points and IoT devices equipped with PCTEL antennas. PCTEL will also use the lab to provide pre-carrier certification testing for its customers. Pre-certification testing not only ensures device performance, but also minimizes the need for expensive re-testing at certification labs.
