Keysight and CTC advanced GmbH Collaborate to Test First Wi-Fi 6E Device
Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS), a leading technology company that delivers advanced design and validation solutions to help accelerate innovation to connect and secure the world, and CTC advanced GmbH, a testing and certification laboratory, have collaborated to certify the first Wi-Fi 6E device. The device, a broadband home gateway, was tested against the most recent version of the European Telecommunications Standard Institute (ETSI) standard EN 303 687, introduced to regulate usage of the new Wi-Fi frequencies (from 5.9 to 6.45 GHz), a mandatory procedure to gain market access.

As a certification laboratory, CTC advanced GmbH is facing demand for Wi-Fi 6E since the beginning of summer 2021. But up to now, no test solution was available on the market. Keysight enhanced the company’s IoT Regulatory Compliance Test Solution (IOT0047A) to simplify precompliance testing and post-test analysis with purpose-built test-automation software.

Keysight’s IoT Regulatory Compliance Test Solution addresses the requirements of ETSI and FCC regulatory standards for IoT devices operating in Industrial, Scientific and Medical (ISM) frequency bands, delivering the following key customer benefits:

  • Flexible and scalable system configuration generating accurate, reproducible results.
  • Scalable configuration and reconfiguration to easily divide a full system into separate test stations that can be used in parallel to address different standards and test cases.
  • Improved system performance with uncertainty reports of each hardware instrument used in the system.
  • Expandable based on test requirements for better capital planning.
  • Simplified test and automation of regulatory testing and report generation.

Regulatory certification is a critical aspect when it comes to optimizing time-to-market of a wireless device. Keysight works closely with regulatory bodies like ETSI and FCC to enable all players of the ecosystem to test their design as early as possible against the new standards. We are proud of this successful collaboration with early adopters, which makes new technologies like Wi-Fi 6E a reality for the mass market.

AI and IoT to Drive Market for Ophthalmic Devices

Frost & Sullivan | September 22, 2020

Frost & Sullivan's recent analysis, Emerging Technologies Driving Growth Opportunities in Ophthalmic Diagnostic and Monitoring Devices, finds that the demand for ophthalmic diagnosis and monitoring devices is expected to surge as the prevalence of eye diseases rises because of the growing aging population, lifestyle changes, and increasing incidence of chronic diseases. Advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), the Internet of Things (IoT), and telemedicine in the ophthalmic diagnosis and monitoring space play crucial roles in driving the market as they address the need for eye screening by increasing operational efficiency, accuracy, cost efficiency and access to ophthalmic care. "Conventional ophthalmic diagnostic devices are bulky and non-portable, take a long time for analysis, require expertise, are uncomfortable for patients, and require frequent visits to the clinic or hospital," said Dr. Sneha Maria Mariawilliam, Technical Insights Senior Research Analyst at Frost & Sullivan. "Going forward, these emerging technologies will support ophthalmologists in better understanding of diseases, taking rapid clinical decisions, and also improving patient compliance and access to eye care, while obtaining better clinical outcomes. These digital solutions will enable ophthalmic diagnostic companies to strengthen their portfolio and stay competitive in the growing market."
