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.
Anritsu Co. announces its market-leading ME7873L RF/RRM Conformance Test System and ME7834L Mobile Device Test Platform have received the most test case validations across a single platform type for LTE-Advanced Carrier Aggregation (CA). This breakthrough further affirms Anritsu’s commitment to provide solutions for certification testing of mobile devices that implement CA, one of the key LTE-Advanced features defined in 3GPP Release 10.
The R&S TS8980FTA-2 and R&S CMW500 platforms from Rohde & Schwarz will expand the overall test capabilities of PCTEST Lab, boost its ability to offer the complete range of wireless test services needed for global certification, and make certification testing more efficient for customers.
NuWaves Engineering, an international Radio Frequency (RF) and Embedded Systems solutions provider, announces it has achieved both ISO 9001:2008 and AS9100:2009 Rev C certifications for its Quality Management System by EAGLE Registrations Inc. With an effective date of August 15, 2013, the registration is valid for three years and its scope includes research and development as well as design and production of RF systems and subsystems.
Emerson Network Power, a business of Emerson and global leader in RF, microwave, and optical connectivity solutions for the delivery of voice, video, and data, announces the Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series (OHSAS) 18001:2007 certification at their Chelmsford, U.K. facility.
The National Quality Assurance (NQA) U.S.A., an accredited organization under the ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board, has assessed and approved CTS Electronic Components, a division of CTS Corp., for ISO 9001:2008 certification for its Hopkinton, MA USA location. The ISO 9001:2008 standard specifies requirements for a quality management system where an organization:
ITT Exelis received National Security Agency (NSA) certifications for its SideHat and the Soldier Radio-Rifleman (SR-R) radios. Certification allows the radios to operate up to the "SECRET" level and be fully integrated into the U.S. Army's tactical communications network.
Anite, a global leader in wireless equipment testing technology, announced that it has further demonstrated its protocol test case leadership with the first LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) carrier aggregation (CA) test case verification submissions to RAN5. These submissions were based on initial verifications originally submitted by Anite to RAN5 in April of 2013. This key achievement is a stepping stone toward validation, leading to the inclusion of these test cases in both GCF and PTCRB device certification requirements.
The Wireless Gigabit (WiGig) Alliance has completed testing its multi-gigabit wireless WiGig technology at the first plugfest since a “memorandum of understanding” of unification with Wi-Fi Alliance® was executed late last month.
The Alliance for Wireless Power (A4WP) announced completion of several key milestones that will help bring a more flexible wireless power technology to the global marketplace. This includes growing its member base and working with members to approve and release A4WP's wireless power specification. Additionally, A4WP's branding committee prepares to unveil an official, go-to-market name and logo for its wireless power specification and to launch a parallel technical testing and certification program.
