Channel Emulator Tests MANET and Mesh Networks

Keysight Technologies’ PROPSIM MANET Channel Emulation Solution secures end-to-end performance and interoperability of Mobile Ad-Hoc Networks (MANET) and mesh radio systems (a self-forming and self-healing reliable network that eliminates single points of failure) for tactical mission critical wireless communications. Manufacturers and military forces require the ability to test mixed networks that combine tactical and avionics radios with satellite links. Increased complexity and technological advancements, such as MIMO and beamforming, has accelerated the need to test large mesh-network topologies with dynamically changing radio channel and interference conditions.

 

To address this need, Keysight’s network-level channel emulation solution enables users to easily replicate field-testing conditions in a repeatable way. It is a highly scalable and flexible solution that supports:
