For the first time, lab-grade debugging and troubleshooting capabilities are introduced to field use.

X-STEP Outdoor provides the field technicians, both at the operator’s and device manufacturer’s end, the means to capture real life network problems and go through them on a bit level in the lab. It is also possible to leave the device at the site and let the manufacturer’s engineers capture and analyze the flow of data remotely. 

“We have seen a growing demand for this kind of debugging tool as our customers suffer from “No fault found” type of device returns. The problem is that if no information exists about the actual error situations that take place in the field, they cannot be corrected back in the lab”. 

“As the networks evolve towards 5G, network complexity increases and all possible configurations and scenarios cannot be tested and predicted at the manufacturing labs. For this reason, it is imperative to have field operable lab-grade tools to be able to efficiently solve the problems that occur only in the field, in real life networks”, says Mr. Harri Valasma, the CEO of Sarokal Test Systems.
