Advanced lab-based performance testing of Mobile Ad-hoc Networks
Network-centric operations require seamless communications between command centres, vehicles and dismounted troops to deliver voice and video streams as well as position data. Mobile Ad-hoc Network (“MANET”) comprises radio nodes that dynamically self-organise into random network topologies. The network configuration does not rely on any fixed infrastructure and is therefore well-suited to defence and public-safety applications. Given the nature of these applications, reliable system performance is critical, which means extensive and rigorous testing requirements.
Anite’s Propsim MANET channel emulation solution offers an accurate and efficient method for evaluating the end-to-end performance of radio systems under real-world radio propagation conditions. Developers of radio equipment are able to significantly reduce the need for costly field trials by testing the radio link and network performance in a laboratory environment, applying realistic modelling of operating conditions. The solution enables users to test key functionality of critical communications networks in hardware-in-the-loop test beds and offers quick evaluation of mission plans and what-if scenarios.
