Ted Rappaport, founding director of NYU WIRELESS and a leading proponent of using the millimeter wave spectrum for wireless communications, discusses the FCC's recent rulemaking actions and technology developments that are paving the way to 5G.
Agilent Technologies Inc. announced the availability of a powerful new automatic fixture removal (AFR) option for its PNA Series network analyzers. Previously available only in Agilent’s Physical Layer Test System (PLTS) software, the error-correction technique is the industry's fastest, easiest way to accurately measure non-coaxial devices, saving engineers time and money.
Agilent Technologies Inc. announced that its EXM wireless test set now supports 4x4 True MIMO capability for WLAN design and validation, with up to four TRXs testing multiple-input, multiple-output antenna characteristics simultaneously. This capability further advances the gigabit era for WLAN evolution, especially the rapidly evolving 802.11ac technology.
Anritsu Co. announced that the Global Certification Forum (GCF) recently confirmed at the CAG#38 meeting in Taipei that the Anritsu ME7834L Protocol Conformance Test (PCT) system has achieved the highest number of approved IMS test cases for device certification.
