SUNNYVALE, Calif., Feb. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- LitePoint, a leading provider of wireless test solutions, has announced the industry's first manufacturing test solution for very high throughput wireless devices supporting the 802.11ac standard.

"802.11ac, the 5 th generation of Wi-Fi (5G WiFi), is the world's fastest and most reliable Wi-Fi for HD-quality video streaming and near instantaneous data synch. Broadcom is working aggressively with LitePoint to design an efficient and consistent testing solution that will enable our customers to deliver state-of-the-art, high-performance 5G WiFi products to the market," said Bryan Richter, Director, Hardware Development Engineering, Broadcom.
