Measuring Wi-Fi Performance to Meet and Exceed End-User Wireless Broadband Expectations PR Newswire MOUNTAIN VIEW, California, Dec. 12, 2012 - Frost & Sullivan hosts complimentary webinar explaining how Wi-Fi technology is the answer to cellular offload MOUNTAIN VIEW, California, Dec. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- WHEN: Wednesday, December 19, 2012 at 11:00 a.m. EST LOCATION: Online, with free registration Frost & Sullivan's Communications Test & Measurement Program Manager Olga Yashkova-Shapiro and Azimuth Systems' Senior Marketing SPEAKERS: Manager Erik Org With a growing number of Internet subscribers and higher broadband penetration, the increasing demand for non-voice traffic (such as data and video streaming) places tremendous pressure on the communication industry, which has issues in limited and licensed bandwidth. Wi-Fi technology, above it all, has emerged as the most popular solution for wireless Internet traffic, as it is inexpensive, unlicensed, pervasive and widely adopted. Furthermore, this technology has transformed from a convenience service offered in coffee shops and hotels into a rugged, scalable and resilient carrier- grade network service. Additionally, growing smartphone adoption has made it more critical for operators to verify a good end-user experience; clearly supported by a growing operator interest in Wi-Fi performance test solutions.

With a growing number of Internet subscribers and higher broadband penetration, the increasing demand for non-voice traffic (such as data and video streaming) places tremendous pressure on the communication industry, which has issues in limited and licensed bandwidth. Wi-Fi technology, above it all, has emerged as the most popular solution for wireless Internet traffic, as it is inexpensive, unlicensed, pervasive and widely adopted. Furthermore, this technology has transformed from a convenience service offered in coffee shops and hotels into a rugged, scalable and resilient carrier-grade network service. Additionally, growing smartphone adoption has made it more critical for operators to verify a good end-user experience; clearly supported by a growing operator interest in Wi-Fi performance test solutions.
The emergence of these highly technical and complex technologies creates a large number of opportunities for equipment vendors from a test and measurement prospective. The focus of this presentation will be to discuss and analyze the various types of test equipment and technologies that are likely to advance the growth of the Wi-Fi test equipment market.
Why you should attend:
Learn about Wi-Fi technology and cellular offload Explore the drivers and challenges in demand for Wi-Fi testing Discover the size of the test equipment market for Wi-Fi Find out about Wi-Fi performance test for smartphones

"The 802.11 ac, also known as 5G Wi-Fi standard, incorporates the latest technologies from the 802.11n standard to provide higher throughput. It is expected that 802.11ac products will first enter the residential markets by the end of 2012. Products will soon emerge in the enterprise and carrier-grade Wi-Fi markets. This will introduce a new set of test equipment to address the performance and testing of 802.11ac products. Currently 802.11ac testing equipment is being used in the R&D testing phase by companies, although in the near future, more equipment will be needed in the quality assurance, manufacturing and other field tests."
Azimuth Systems Senior Marketing Manager Erik Org
"Today's data subscribers expect a consistent use experience regardless of whether data is delivered via 3G, 4G or Wi-Fi. More operators and device vendors are thus looking at Wi-Fi performance solutions for smartphones, as well as mobile hotspots in order to benchmark Wi-Fi performance of their devices and ensure a seamless experience and customer satisfaction."
