CETECOM has selected Rohde & Schwarz (R&S) to enhance their OTA testing capabilities with a new test system that includes LTE multiple-input, multiple-output (MIMO) and 802.11n functionality. The TS8991 test system can perform OTA measurements for LTE MIMO in addition to all cellular 2G, 3G, and 4G technology standards.
Rohde & Schwarz launched the R&S SMW200A high-end vector signal generator that combines maximum flexibility, outstanding performance and intuitive operation, making it the ideal tool for generating complex, digitally modulated signals.
Laird Technologies, a global technology company, announced that its advanced, first-to-market, high-speed wireless antenna system has been deployed at the Singapore Changi Airport, the 15th busiest airport in the world.
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.
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.
