Keysight Ensures Coverage, Service Quality in Mission Critical, Consumer-Based IoT Networks

June 28, 2018

Keysight Technologies Inc. has expanded the company's handheld field measurement solutions with the new Nemo IoT Meter and Nemo Handy IoT solutions. These solutions enable network operators and service providers to actively test networks in the field, ensuring the coverage and service quality of networks in mission-critical and consumer-based IoT applications, accelerating installations and speeding time-to-revenue.

"The availability of LTE network coverage does not necessarily mean that an IoT service is up and running smoothly in specific customer locations," said Kai Ojala, head of Nemo measurement solutions at Keysight Technologies. "By performing active field measurements with Keysight's handheld IoT measurement solutions, installation companies and operators' technical and sales staff can now validate that networks meet set requirements, reliable IoT services are offered to end customers for their IoT applications and onsite installations will be successful."

Nemo IoT Meter is Keysight's easy-to-use handheld measurement tool for verifying IoT service quality at customer premises. It runs on a regular Android-based smartphone and is connected through a Narrowband (NB)-IoT or LTE-M dongle. With Nemo IoT Meter, you can easily check IoT network coverage and connection quality, and create an intelligible report of the performed measurements.

Nemo Handy IoT is a professional handheld field test solution that provides operators with in-depth information on their IoT network's key performance indicators (KPI). Specific KPIs measured include coverage, quality and detailed log files from active field testing. All results can easily be exported for further post-processing with analytics tools like Keysight's Nemo Analyze and Nemo WindCatcher.

Keysight offers a full portfolio of Nemo-branded field measurement solutions for NB-IoT and LTE-M quality assurance. In addition to Nemo IoT Meter and Nemo Handy IoT, the portfolio features Nemo Outdoor for advanced field testing.
