Novus mini, a network test platform in a compact form factor, addresses the needs of network engineers as they deploy automotive and industrial internet of things (IoT) devices.

As organizations transition to Industry 4.0 business models to take advantage of digitalization, their reliance on connected IoT devices becomes critical for business operations. Industries such as automotive and manufacturing can improve safety and efficiency by connecting IoT machines and sensors to business systems. However, when connectivity and network issues cause system failures and downtime, it can result in high-risk, life-threatening situations. To mitigate any potential problems, network engineers must fully test the connectivity and performance of network components before deploying them.

Keysight’s Novus mini, a compact, quiet, and affordable platform for testing the performance and conformance of industrial networks, meets these needs. The Novus mini also supports testing based on time sensitive networking (TSN) standards, a critical safety component in IoT applications, including advanced driver assistance systems employed in autonomous vehicles.
