Cetecom Labs and Invenova Corporation announced that Invenova’s WiMAX test products are being used in the certification testing of WiMAX products.

Cetecom Labs, the official test lab for WiMAX certification, and Invenova Corporation, a developer of instrumentation, test and measurement systems for standards-based wireless technologies, today announced that Invenova’s WiMAX test products are being used in the certification testing of WiMAX products.

Cetecom Labs has independently validated the Invenova test systems (Astro8000 series WiMAX Protocol Test and Measurement products) that are currently being used in the WiMAX certification test bed, for WiMAX Wave 1 certification testing.

Invenova and Cetecom Labs have been engaged in close cooperation for the last 1 year in the validation of the WiMAX test suite and test bed.

“Using Invenova’s test tools has helped Cetecom conduct conformance and interoperability testing which are key components of the Certfication requirements,” said Fernando Hardasmal, Deputy General Manager at Cetecom Labs. “Having validated the Invenova PCT and the WIMAX test bed gave us high confidence as we opened up the lab for the first wave of WiMAX Certification. Invenova has enabled us to reduce the time and expense required to bring up the test bed.”
