Excentis offers a unique testing service in a real home — a realistic, static, residential environment with controllable interference. This setting enables the customer to statistically compare Wi-Fi access points, as the performance is measured by a robot from different physical locations in the home, with different client types (laptops, tablets, smartphones,...) and with different operating parameters. This program can also be used for benchmarking.
At Dutch cable operator DELTA they have even made a video about our Wi-Fi house, to show to their customers that they're dedicated to quality! They work hard every day to offer the best internet in the Zeeland province (The Netherlands). Service specialist Dennis explains what testing services they use in the Excentis Wi-Fi test house:

ARRIS recently utilized Excentis’ Wi-Fi testing services to aid in the development of our new Telephony Gateway products. Excentis was able to quickly and repeatedly (the most important part) test our development samples to speed our time to market. The clarity of the data, and the ability to repeat the test after firmware and/or hardware modifications, enabled our engineers to quickly reach an optimized state and release our product on time.
