Frost & Sullivan: Hermon Labs' Latest Product Offers Unparalleled Price Performance Value in the Wireless R&D and Manufacturing Test Space

Advanced features and functionalities make the G9200 RCA one of the most cost-effective and efficient test solutions available for LTE mobile testing

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. - Wednesday, June 26, 2013 - Based on its recent analysis of the wireless R&D and manufacturing test equipment market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Hermon Laboratories Ltd. (Hermon Labs) with the 2013 Global Frost & Sullivan Price Performance Value Leadership Award for the introduction of its G9200 Radio Conformance Analyzer (RCA), used for testing mobile long-term evolution (LTE) and other radio technology equipment.

"The market was in need of a complete and cost-effective test solution that has a low footprint and reduces the complexity of LTE testing," said Frost & Sullivan Program Manager Olga Yashkova-Shapiro. "Unlike other participants that offer various test units for different functions, resulting in lack of integration, increased footprint, and higher test costs, Hermon Labs' solution is a single, easy-to-use, flexible and scalable product that can be used by customers in development, verification, and conformance testing of LTE mobile devices."

The G9200 RCA test platform combines the function of more than 10 individual instruments offering base station emulators (BSE) with up to three cells, protocol tester, vector signal analyzers (VSA), vector signal generator (VSG), power meter, and fading emulator. In addition, the solution offers high modularity. This means that customers can pick and choose test functionalities and eliminate unwanted components, which considerably reduces the cost of the equipment.

"For instance, while a radio-frequency conformance system comprising a number of test instruments from other major market participants might cost more than $1.5M, Hermon Labs' solution, with the same capabilities, is priced between $600K and $800K," explained Olga Yashkova-Shapiro. "This outstanding value proposition, in terms of price performance value, positions the G9200 RCA to capture significant market interest in the near future."

The highly intuitive user interface of the G9200 RCA does not require any specialized language skills and can be used by any test engineer without extensive training requirements. The solution also offers high scalability, enabling users to add test capabilities as and when required. Using this solution allows users to automate test scenarios and share test databases with multiple departments within a company.

"In addition to testing capabilities, the G9200 RCA also serves as a complete lab management solution, allowing users to manage test databases, settings, actions, projects, virtual instruments, and reports as well as client information, thus bringing unmatched value to its customers," iterated Yashkova-Shapiro.

Hermon Labs' customer support services are as robust as its product offering. For instance, the company can remotely link to the Windows-based device and take complete control of the instrument on user premises for both training and debugging purposes. Additionally, the company offers training support documentation, along with a video tutorial, to customers. If required, experienced trainers are sent to the customer's site.

For its ability to develop such a simple and cost-effective test platform for R&D and manufacturing applications, Hermon Labs is the worthiest recipient of the 2013 Frost & Sullivan Global Price Performance Value Leadership Award. Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to a company that has developed a product to suit market and client needs. The award lauds the price competitiveness, features, ease of use of the product as well as the service effectiveness of the recipient company.

Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis, and extensive secondary research in order to identify best practices in the industry.
