ROCKVILLE, Md., Sept. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Intelligent Automation, Incorporated (IAI), will exhibit The Radio Frequency Network channel Emulator/Simulator Tool, or RFnest™, at the Military Communications Conference (MILCOM), November 1-3, 2016, at the Baltimore Convention Center, booth #4029. The RFnest™ family of products facilitates the testing of new radio technologies in laboratory settings. IAI's RFnest™ is the first scalable full mesh channel emulator in the market today, that will allow for up to 96 physical radios to be networked in a realistic operational environment.
RFnest™ allows radios to be tested and evaluated in MIMO, SISO, SIMO, MISO or mesh configurations, across a broad Radio Frequency (RF) spectrum. By configuring various channel models that mimic real-life environments such as rural areas and urban canyons, users can create large test scenarios that recreate the communication characteristics experienced by operations involving dismounted soldiers, vehicle convoys, unmanned aerial vehicles, and airborne networks.
"As tactical wireless communication networks continue to expand and dominate the global Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) landscape, developing an effective and realistic testing environment for these emerging communications technologies remains an urgent need," says Dr. Vikram Manikonda, President/CEO of IAI. "The modular, scalable, and versatile, features of RFnest™ in terms of the number of ports, RF configurations, frequency bands, and our RFview™ software provides them this much needed capability."
RFnest's support of real radio/network nodes allows for large testing scenarios that involve myriad networked nodes with all nodes experiencing realistic channel response. The integrated RFview™ data display and visualization tools provide the user with a reliable and repeatable assessment of the communications protocols and network performance. RFview™ interfaces with third party channel modeling tools for specific channels of interest, as well as network emulation software including the Extendable Mobile Ad-hoc Network Emulator (EMANE) and the Common Open Research Emulator (CORE).
