Spirent OCTOBOX Box-38
Small Semi-anechoic chamber (38 inches wide)

Complete RF isolation, turn table and built-in instrumentation

OCTOBOX Box-38 is a small semi-anechoic chamber offering complete isolation from external interference thanks to its high-rejection filters for data and power connections. With metal surfaces covered by absorber foam, OCTOBOX dampens reflections. A built-in plastic turn table enables rotation of the device during the test or precisely orients the device antennas to determine nulls and peaks in the antenna propagation pattern.

The OCTOBOX can be turned into an OCTOBOX smartBox™ by adding an OCTOBOX Pal-6E subsystem, based on one of the most advanced Wi-Fi 6E chipsets on the market supporting all the Wi-Fi protocols, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/ ac/ax, in the 2.4, 5 and 6 GHz bands. With the access to the chipset’s driver and firmware, you can configure the smartBox as a real device or as a test instrument. As a real device, the smartBox runs the standard station and AP (access point) drivers and hence supports the full protocol stack, including PHY, MAC, IP and application layers. As an instrument, the smartBox can emulate virtual stations for testing APs under heavy traffic load from multiple stations, perform expert monitoring and analysis, replay captured traffic or operate as a sniffer.
