Guide – The Benefits of RF Testing For Mission Critical IoT Designs

IoT devices connect to the network by communicating via other devices (node, access points such as routers, and then to base stations). Various factors in the field can make wireless communications unstable, which causes IoT devices to retransmit data frequently to try to maintain connection. If re-transmission frequency exceeds a certain level, the connection may be difficult to establish or maintain, and the expected communication speed may not be achieved. Consequently, the IoT device power consumption may increase and reduce battery life. In other words, even when a wireless connection is confirmed at the access point (AP), there is still a real possibility of hidden communications problems following product design and manufacture. If these hidden problems are allowed to continue, communications issues may continue to occur more frequently, depending on how the product is used by the end user under the actual environment.
