Anritsu, Tech Mahindra Open IoT Experience Lab in California
Thursday, June 02, 2022 | Comments

Tech Mahindra collaborated with Anritsu to launch an Internet of Things (IoT) Experience Lab. Located in Tech Mahindra’s Fremont, California, facility, the lab will provide efficient testing of 5G devices used in emerging IoT use cases.

The lab aims to create a simple, cost-effective environment for 5G IoT device manufacturers to verify device performance to ensure greater product confidence during pre-commercialization. The lab will be an incubator, as well as a research and development center, for IoT device manufacturers to validate their designs in the early development phase and to help launch best-in-class IoT products. The collaboration will leverage use cases developed by Tech Mahindra, and simple automated smart application software from Anritsu that automatically performs functional, performance, stress and regression tests and provides user-friendly reports and logs to gauge device performance.

“The advances in 5G will aid the evolution of innovative use cases in IoT,” said Robhit Madhok, global head of digital engineering services, Tech Mahindra. “While this creates new opportunities, the way the design and manufacturing engineers validate products and procedures must also keep pace with the newer capabilities. Tech Mahindra’s NXT.NOWTM strategy focuses on accelerating enterprises’ 5G adoption, and this collaboration with Anritsu to start an IoT Experience Lab at our Fremont facility is a significant step in this direction by enabling IoT device manufacturers to deliver high-quality solutions with much less time to market.”

The experience lab consists of the Anritsu MT8000A radio communication test station, MT8821C radio communication analyzer, MD8475B signaling tester, and MT8862A wireless connectivity test set (WLAN). Device OEMs can access the lab to verify that their products are performing based on expected outcomes of applications in different verticals, including industrial IoT, telemedicine, autonomous vehicles, smart cities and virtual reality (VR).

“5G brings the advantages and efficiencies of wireless technology to applications that help define the fourth industrial revolution,” Anritsu General Manager and Vice President Robert E. Johnson said. “Each use case creates unique operational challenges that require specific tests. Our collaboration with Tech Mahindra provides a resource for manufacturers to cost- and time-efficiently verify that their devices will operate according to specifications in the most challenging real-world environments.”

By leveraging Tech Mahindra’s 5G engineering strength to develop IoT devices ready for commercialization and Anritsu’s support in multiple technologies, such as 5G non-standalone (NSA) and standalone (SA), 4G LTE and WLAN, the lab offers significant cost savings. It helps OEMs minimize the potential failures/returns when devices connect to commercial enterprise networks.
