The University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL) has expanded its WiFi testing capabilities through the acquisition of cutting-edge test and measurement equipment from Octoscope.

With a staff of highly trained test engineers, the expansion of UNH-IOL’s WiFi testing platform is in response to service providers’ and customer-premise equipment (CPE) manufacturers’ goals to provide end-users with robust and reliable wireless broadband performance today, and as capacity  demands continue to increase at the network edge.   

Current market analysis predicts that the global WiFi market could grow to be valued at $33.6 Billion USD by 2020.  

Wireless performance has become a key factor within broadband deployments. Because many consumers view WiFi connectivity as being the Internet, Internet Service Providers (ISPs) are generally blamed for poor performance. The ever-increasing number of WiFi-connected devices, and the advent of new, faster wireless technologies like IEEE 802.11ac, has increased the number of factors that can directly impact WiFi performance.

It’s clear that capacity demands driven by rapidly expanding mobility use and high-data broadband services, such as video streaming, is greatly impacting networks and creating operational challenges for service providers vested in differentiating their offerings based upon best-in-class performance.services.
