Femtocell & Small-Cell Test
Quality & Speed at the Lowest Overall Cost of Test
The demand for femtocells in both residential and office environments is growing rapidly. Of the 1000x mobile data growth expected in the next five years, at least 80% will come from indoor locations. To address the emerging small-cell base station market, LitePoint, the leader in wireless test, has a multi-DUT test solution designed to help you keep pace with demand, lower your costs, and meet your time-to-market goals.
The IQxstream® single-box integrated tester is ideally suited for cost-efficient femtocell and small-cell manufacturing to ensure the quality end-users expect from their paid data subscription service.
Accelerate your femtocell production with the following benefits of IQxstream:
Simplicity of a single-box integrated solution
Industry proven for highest-quality cellular testing
Reliability and performance for high-volume manufacturing
