The University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL), an independent provider of testing and standards conformance services for the networking industry, has expanded its WiFi testing capabilities through the acquisition of test and measurement equipment from Octoscope. The expansion is in response to service providers' and customer-premises equipment (CPE) manufacturers' goals to provide end-users with robust and reliable wireless broadband as capacity demands continue to increase at the network edge.

"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," said UNH-IOL Senior Engineer Lincoln Lavoie. "The UNH-IOL understands the importance of providing controlled, repeatable testing and measurement procedures based on actual WiFi usage, and has invested in equipment purchases needed to provide a comprehensive testbed that helps assure quality of service for wireless customers."

"TalkTalk is committed to delivering the best experience for our customers. We welcome UNH-IOL's decision to expand its WIFI testing capabilities. It will provide us with invaluable access to a testbed that can accurately measure results based on real usage scenarios," said Pete Beynon, principal network services engineer, TalkTalk Group. "Robust testing and measurement is key to the continuous improvement of broadband services, and WIFI performance has become critical to that equation. In turn, this will help ensure providers continue to meet consumers' growing demand for faster, more reliable services."
