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.
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.
Agilent Technologies Inc. will demonstrate its industry-first communications test and measurement solutions for LTE-Advanced, LTE, HSPA+, dual-carrier HSDPA, MIMO, multi-standard radio and voice over LTE, along with 2G/3G solutions for R&D, manufacturing and deployment at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, from February 27 through March 1.
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.
