PCTEL Inc., a leader in simplifying wireless and site solutions for private and public networks, announced at the LTE North America Conference, the release of new LTE MIMO, LTE Layer 3, and Blind Scan features for its SeeGull MX scanning receiver. These features, which are fully supported by PCTEL's SeeHawk® Drive Test Suite, will help operators maximize spectral efficiency on 4G LTE networks while simplifying the testing of all network technologies. Wireless networks are evolving in order to meet growing demand for high-speed data.
Agilent Technologies Inc. and the Wireless Institute at the University of Notre Dame announced that they will establish a collaborative research initiative aimed at developing the next generation of multiple-input, multiple-output wireless technologies.
Aeroflex Ltd. announced that the industry-standard TM500 LTE-A Single UE Test Mobile has added support for 3GPP Release 10 (Rel-10) Transmission Mode 9 (TM9), which allows enhanced network capability and performance by flexible use of MIMO with minimum additional overhead.
7Layers has announced that it is the first independent test lab to measure Envelope Correlation Coefficient.
The EDI CON 2013 organizers announce that executives from China Mobile Research Institute (CMRI), ZTE and the Beijing Institute of Radio Metrology and Measurements (BIRMM) will take part in the plenary session of the opening day program, presenting their respective emphasis on the system requirements driving high-frequency electronic design trends in China.
Agilent Technologies Inc. announced a new video, "8x8 LTE MIMO Analysis - N7109A Signal Analyzer - 89600 VSA - SystemVue." See how new 8x8 MIMO simulation and measurement capabilities help LTE basestation designers stay ahead of rapidly evolving LTE standards test requirements.
Rohde & Schwarz has introduced a fading simulation module for its R&S CMW500 wideband radio communication tester.
Agilent Technologies Inc. announced the newest release of SystemVue, its premier platform for designing communications and defense systems.
Maxim Integrated Products Inc. introduced the MAX2580*, a single-chip multistandard RF to Bits® small cell radio transceiver. This highly integrated solution requires very few external components to execute an all-band, multimode, multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) radio design.
Rohde & Schwarz performs together with ASTRI a live test on a 2x2 MIMO base station in the uplink and downlink at the Mobile World Congress 2013. Hong Kong Applied Science and Technology Research Institute (ASTRI) provides an LTE-Advanced small cell as the device under test. What makes this demonstration special is that the 2x2 MIMO signal is generated and analyzed using only a single measuring instrument each.
