Teseq has introduced the new INA 703 magnetic field coil that generates fields up to 1200 A/m during magnetic field testing. It is designed for testing to IEC 61000-4-8 (supply frequency magnetic fields), IEC 61000-4-9 (pulsed magnetic fields) and IEC 61000-4-10 (oscillatory magnetic fields) standards. It is suitable for medical equipment, military, avionics, aerospace and industry applications.
Rohde & Schwarzhas integrated SwissQual, a leading provider of systems for measuring and assessing the quality of service (QoS) in wireless networks, into its group of companies. Through the acquisition Rohde & Schwarz will be in a position to better and more fully address the drive test market with a complete industry-leading technological offering.
Anritsu Co. announces the availability of integrated IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) functionality for its MD8475A Signaling Tester. Adding this LTE functionality extends the capabilities of the MD8475A’s SmartStudio graphical network simulation environment to include Call Session Control Function (CSCF), Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP), and Domain Name System (DNS) servers, using either IPv4, IPv6, or dual-stack addressing.
CST has announce that Delcross Technologies’ Electromagnetic Interference Toolkit (EMIT) is now available through the CST of America sales channel. The software will be fully supported by CST’s skilled team of electromagnetic specialists.
Agilent Technologies announced four new X-Series signal generators that provide unmatched performance in phase noise, output power, ACPR, EVM and bandwidth. With these capabilities, Agilent’s new MXG and EXG products (available in analog and vector models) support the development of components and receivers that meet the complex challenges of mitigating interference, speeding data throughput and increasing signal quality in applications such as radar, military communications and consumer wireless.
EB (Elektrobit Corp.) has introduced the EB Propsim F32 radio channel emulator for testing the performance of wireless networks, base stations, terminals and chipsets utilizing multi-antenna and multi-radio technologies.
MILMEGA Ltd has been awarded a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Innovation for developing amplifiers, based on a novel design methodology, using gallium nitride-based transistors, for use in Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) test equipment.
The CTIA MIMO Expert Forum brought together technologists from ETS-Lindgren, Agilent Technologies, Spirent Communications and EB (Elektrobit) to discuss the challenges of OTA testing. The “Top Ten” questions received from attendees at last year’s CTIA MIMO Expert Forum are answered below.
This white paper summarizes the technology options for supporting voice and short message service (SMS) in LTE, including circuit switched fallback (CSFB), SMS over SGs, and voice over LTE (VoLTE). It includes background information on the standardization process, and the commercial implications for the different options. The white paper also addresses test and measurement requirements resulting from the support of voice and SMS in LTE.
