The ISA100 Wireless Compliance Institute (WCI) released its ISA100.11a Stack Conformance and Device Interoperability Test Kits, which are designed to verify conformance to the ISA100.11a standard. Both kits verify the correct communication behavior of a wireless device as defined in the ISA100.11a standard and provide tools for troubleshooting, debugging, and regression testing of ISA100.11a products.

ISA100.11a Stack Conformance Test Kit
The ISA100.11a Stack Conformance Test Kit is a package that enables the user to ensure a manufacturer’s communication stack conforms to the formal ISA100.11a registration testing and will verify the correct communication behavior of a wireless device as defined in the ISA100.11a standard.

This kit also ensures ISA100.11a communication stack conformance prior to device interoperability testing. Components include a script server and software, test script source code and technical documentation, four diagnostic backbone routers, reference device under test, and an Ethernet router.

ISA100.11a Device Interoperability Test Kit
A subset of the Stack Conformance Test Kit, the ISA100.11a Device Interoperability Test Kit is a package that enables users to ensure a manufacturer’s device conforms to the formal ISA100.11a registration testing and to verify the correct communication behavior. The kit ensures ISA100.11a device interoperability in native mode, in conjunction with the ISA100.11a Stack Conformance Test Kit.

Components include the script server and software, test script source code and technical documentation, diagnostic backbone router, reference device under test, and Ethernet router.

Both ISA100.11a Wireless Test Kits are available now and will be used by organizations developing products to the ISA100.11a standard. The test kits are typically used in Research and Development and Quality Assurance groups of supplier organizations.

Both kits are delivered with a one-year warranty and require only a PC with web browser.
