Conformance Testing is required to verify that global products meet international standards to ensure interoperability. This webcast provides an overview of the LTE conformance process, including a description of the certification and standardization bodies involved and the evolution of conformance standards through Release 10. There are unique challenges to performing LTE conformance tests. In particular, RF Testing is more complex because of the use of OFDMA, various modulation schemes and MIMO, which dramatically increases the number of combinations that must be tested. A detailed analysis of the LTE RF Test Requirements from conformance and pre-conformance test perspectives is provided along with RF and physical layer user equipment (UE) testing examples. The webcast concludes with a discussion of parametric testing beyond conformance tests.
Technical users such as Lab and R&D engineers in the testing, qualification, compliance and conformance departments of mobile device and chipset design and manufacturing companies, Test Laboratories and Network Operators in the Wireless communication LTE test industry.
