A Development Test Mode for the WiMAX 802.16e protocol conformance test solution has been released by Aeroflex and AT4 Wireless (formerly CETECOM Spain) on behalf of the WiMAX Forum. The Development Test Mode gives first-line WiMAX equipment manufacturers, chipset developers, and protocol stack developers an early opportunity to test both subscriber and base station functionality and interoperability throughout the development phase of their products. WiMAX 802.16e protocol conformance test systems purchased with the initial Development Test Mode capability will be upgradable to the full conformance test system when the additional functionality becomes available. This new WiMAX 802.16e protocol conformance test solution enables the creation and execution of test case campaigns along with the production and analysis of test reports and logs. It also facilitates source level debugging with single stepping and break points and provides the ability to edit, save and compile test cases. The Development Test Mode for the WiMAX 802.16e protocol conformance test solution also gives developers early access to WiMAX test procedures and purposes through a series of example test cases.
