By testing with real client devices, the AWE TR-398 can help network product manufacturers provide real and immediate feedback, the Quality of Experience (QoE) can be reviewed, analyzed, and enhanced.

The AWE TR-398 test cases can be automated and easily customized through manual modification to meet different customer needs. This solution has a multi-antenna design, which can reduce performance deterioration due to the mismatch of APUT placement and antenna polarization. The AWE TR-398 can test according to current TR-398 specifications, and when updated, future TR-398 test cases are possible through software and hardware test suite upgrades achieving new TR-398 testing.

With the TR-398 test suite provided, it is possible to perform the TR-398 test automatically or to modify test cases and conditions manually with ease. The hardware is 6 GHz compatible and can also be used for mesh-related performance testing. Mesh-related testing will be introduced in a later issue of TR-398 as well as other performance test plans of other Standard Development Organizations (SDOs) including ETSI, CCSA, and more.

AWE has options available based on your demands, including DUT as Station (e.g. Laptop, Mobile), Mesh AP Roaming Test and Wi-Fi 7 test can be enabled with swappable Wi-Fi 7 modules.
