Movandi chooses LitePoint for production testing of its BeamX 5G technology

SUNNYVALE, Calif. – February 19, 2019 – LitePoint, a leading provider of wireless test
solutions, announced today that Movandi has selected LitePoint’s IQgig-5G millimeter
wave (mmWave) test system for design validation and production of Movandi’s new 5G
BeamX system solutions. The powerful combination of a leading 5G technology solution
developer and innovative wireless testing company will help to enable fast
manufacturing product ramps of 5G solutions, while reducing lengthy test development
and debugging cycles.

“Movandi is revolutionizing mmWave 5G networks by providing the complete system to
enable 5G everywhere,” said Maryam Rofougaran, Co-CEO and COO, Movandi. “Our
system solutions deliver the highest level of performance and flexibility to ensure that
5G technology can be broadly and successfully deployed in the real world. Using
LitePoint’s 5G mmWave testing technology is vital to meeting our aggressive time to
market and production goals to our early stage customers.”

High quality network equipment and connections are vital in 5G mmWave networks due
to high data rates and the mission critical nature of the networks. LitePoint’s IQgig-5G is
designed to be easy to set up and easy to use. All of the mmWave test functionality
resides in a single enclosure and the system is easy to program and integrates both
signal generation and analysis capability.

“The IQgig-5G virtually eliminates the complexity of over-the-air millimeter wave testing
and is the simplest solution for design verification and production testing of 5G
mmWave products as all the required hardware is self-contained inside a single box,”
said Adam Smith, Director of Product Marketing at LitePoint. “The solution’s full
hardware integration significantly reduces the test set up complexity, provides high
reliability and improves production efficiency.”

5G mmWave devices are expected to start initial production in 2019. 5G devices include
base stations, small cells, and mobile broadband access points operating in the 28 GHz
and 39 GHz frequency bands, all of which are supported by Movandi’s BeamX 5G RF
front-end solution, tested on LitePoint’s IQgig-5G.
