Addressing Design and Test Challenges for the New LTE-Advanced Standard
Date: July 15, 2014
Time: 10am PT/ 1pm ET/ 5pm UTC
Presented by: Sheri DeTomasi, Program Manager, Software and Modular Solutions Division, Agilent Technologies
Why this webcast is important:
Understand the complexities, challenges and test methods that will give you more insight into your multi-channel tests. While LTE-Advanced brings the promise of higher data rates, designing and testing devices that include new carrier aggregation with wider transmissions bandwidths up to 100 MHz and MIMO technologies that support up to 8x8 signal processing will require new flexible measurement platforms. This webinar provides an overview of LTE-Advanced carrier aggregation and MIMO technologies and the associated design and test challenges. It describes critical measurements and different test methodologies that can be used for complex multi-antenna techniques including MIMO spatial multiplexing, beamforming and MIMO implemented with carrier aggregation. Examples and tradeoffs are described for both benchtop and modular instruments.
Who should view:
Design engineers, test engineers, test engineering managers, design engineering managers, in the basestation, microcell, picocell and mobile device industries.
