The platform will support smart Wi-Fi integrations and deployments.

Airties, a provider of managed Wi-Fi solutions, announced the commercial launch of its continuous test automation platform Orbit on March 28. The platform promises to support smart Wi-Fi integrations and deployments for broadband service providers, customer premises equipment (CPE) manufacturers, and system-on-chip (SoC) manufacturers.

Airties reports that the Orbit platform ensures consistent data accuracy and performance measurement criteria across various Wi-Fi chipsets, embedded software, and hardware combinations. The company says that, with the platform, broadband operators and suppliers can continuously validate data tested during software changes and firmware updates, address Wi-Fi performance issues, and, with self-certification, accelerate time-to-market for managed Wi-Fi deployments.

Founder and co-CEO of Airties Metin Taskin said in a press release, “Service providers need an efficient way to manage the variability of broadband software to ensure consistent quality home Wi-Fi, test the impact of software updates, and launch new products. Airties Orbit removes the complexity and inconsistencies of traditional testing methods, allowing operators, OEMs, and SoC manufacturers to verify performance with confidence and speed. Orbit ensures the accuracy and completeness of data across tests, streamlines device onboarding, and improves efficiency through automation. This translates to faster time-to-market, reduced costs, and ultimately, a better Wi-Fi experience for everyone involved.”
