Anritsu Corp. and EMITE have announced that the Anritsu MT8820C One-Box Tester has been selected by EMITE as a supported test solution for MIMO OTA LTE compliance testing.
When network operators upgrade to LTE they want to take full advantage of their new and existing resources, so to support this objective, Rohde & Schwarz has added MIMO-specific measurements to its R&S ROMES4.65 drive test software. Using this feature, the R&S TSMW network scanner can quickly identify interferers that reduce MIMO performance in LTE networks.
Spirent Communications announced that several companies and government research organizations in the Asia Pacific region are using the Spirent VR5 HD Spatial Channel Emulator to test implementations of advanced MIMO beamforming.
The Centre for Wireless Communications (CWC), a project-funded research group operating in conjunction with the Department of Communications Engineering at the University of Oulu, Finland, is employing EB Propsim F8 radio channel emulator and EB MIMO OTA Application to provide wireless testing and research capabilities under the most realistic propagation conditions.
Azimuth Systems Inc. announced the ACE™ MX2 wireless channel emulator together with its comprehensive strategy for real world test. The ACE MX2 MIMO Channel Emulator, Azimuth’s newest channel emulator, is the first product created in support of the new strategy.
Agilent Technologies Inc. announced its participation, with ETS-Lindgren, in an educational panel discussion – “MIMO OTA Measurements: The Next Generation Platform for Wireless Testing” – at the International CTIA Wireless event in New Orleans.
A new forecast published today indicates that multi-mode, multi-band handsets and MIMO will drive staggering growth in the number of RF components shipped for mobile devices. By 2017, annual sales of 3 billion mobile devices will drive almost 20 billion different bands and operating modes.
Azimuth Systems, Inc., a provider of comprehensive real world wireless test solutions for 2G/3G/4G, LTE-Advanced and beyond, announced that its new ACE™ MX2 MIMO channel emulator supports advanced testing configurations such as MU-MIMO, InterRAT, and Carrier Aggregation scenarios.
7Layers purchased an ME7873L LTE RF Conformance Test (RFCT) system from Anritsu. 7Layers is looking to provide its customers with additional LTE testing options and meet increased demand for LTE testing.
