Keysight's Novus mini network test platform addresses the needs of network engineers as they deploy automotive and IIoT devices.
Keysight Technologies Inc. is expanding its Novus portfolio with the new Novus mini, a network test platform in a compact form factor that addresses the needs of network engineers as they deploy automotive and industrial internet of things (IoT) devices.
As enterprises transition to Industry 4.0 business models to take advantage of digitalization, their reliance on connected IoT devices become more important to business operations. Industries such as automotive and manufacturing can improve safety and efficiency by connecting IoT machines and sensors to business systems. However, system failures and downtime caused by connectivity and network issues can result in high-risk, life-threatening situations. To mitigate any potential problems, network engineers must fully test the connectivity and performance of network components and IoT devices before deploying them.
Keysight’s Novus mini provides network engineers a compact, quiet, and affordable platform to test the performance and conformance of their industrial networks. It also supports testing based on time-sensitive networking (TSN) standards, which is a critical safety component in IoT applications such as the advanced driver assistance systems employed in autonomous vehicles.
“The Novus mini offers a comprehensive TSN conformance suite based on multiple Avnu Alliance test plans for different applications and markets, enabling companies to easily test their products on the path to interoperability,” said Ed Agis, Avnu Alliance Work Group Co-Chair, Avnu.
“The Novus mini provides real-world validation and automated conformance testing for leading edge technologies. Our customers must trust that their products consistently meet quality standards and comply with regulatory requirements to avoid costly fines and penalties. The Novus mini allows us to deliver this confident assurance with a compact, integrated network test solution that can keep pace with innovation as industries constantly evolve. As a member of the Avnu Alliance community, Keysight is working with other market leaders to advance Industry 4.0 by crafting essential standards for the next generation of IoT,” said Ram Periakaruppan, Vice President and General Manager, Network Test & Security Solutions, Keysight.
Keysight is showcasing its comprehensive portfolio of network test solutions for industrial networks, including the Novus mini, at this week’s Hannover Messe 2023 (Hall 14, Stand H06).
