Frontline Test Equipment, Inc. announces the release of their Bluetooth low energy Innovator Suite product - a combination tool and services bundle positioned to help Bluetooth Smart developers create more robust, interoperable, and successful products for the internet of things in less time than ever thought possible.
The internet of things is expanding as more and more devices connect and work together. Bluetooth wireless technology, and especially Bluetooth Smart (Bluetooth low energy) technology plays a significant role in making this a reality. From sports & fitness to wearables, and from the connected home to the connected car, devices interoperate to make our worlds more enjoyable, productive, and safe. Demand for robust, reliable, and interoperable "connected" products has never be greater.
Frontline has for years been the leader in Bluetooth wireless technology testing tools, and the first to offer a Bluetooth low energy protocol analyzer. Now they have gone one step further - combining their industry leading ComProbe BPA low energy Bluetooth Protocol Analyzer with the power of their testing services group to offer the Bluetooth low energy Innovator Suite. Companies developing Bluetooth Smart enabled products can now have both the tool they need to efficiently debug and troubleshoot their implementation in the lab, but also testing services as part of the Innovator Suite. Companies simply send one of their devices to Frontline where it is tested against the latest Android and iOS devices in the marketplace, and then receive a report with test results, analysis, and recommendations.
"Time-to-market is everything" says Bill Johnson, Marketing Manager. "The first products to capture the attention of potential customers are generally the most successful products in the marketplace, assuming the quality is good. The Bluetooth low energy Innovator Suite will save our customer time and money in development, and reduce their overall time-to-market."
"Developers of Bluetooth Smart devices need to know their devices are going to be interoperable and reliable - working the first time and every time" says Paul Russell, Vice President of Engineering Services. "Using the Innovator Suite gives our customers confidence that their products will work correctly, having been tested not only in their own labs but by Frontline as well. It is an extremely cost effective way to test products, especially for smaller or new-to-Bluetooth companies."
