Four main wireless carriers operate in the U.S. After the approval of EMITE E-Series Test Platform by AT&T for 4G OTA testing of devices a few years ago, the EMITE H-Series 5G OTA Test Platform has now been selected by the largest U.S. carrier for testing 5G devices over the air. The selection ends a lengthy and thorough evaluation with several platforms considered.

Among the many EMITE-inherent technical advantages considered for the selection, an outstanding full-automation and complete system and instrument control GUI software capable of batch testing overnight, the integration of climatic-control, the use of different 3GPP-approved test methods, an astonishing 0.5 dB inter-lab repeatability and the ability to operate diverse signaling boxes were considered key factors. EMITE 5G OTA Test Platforms have also been recently listed at PTCRB, and can now be considered the state-of-the-art for 5G OTA testing.

EMITE will open its U.S. branch office near New York shortly to complement Acentury Americas local teams in Dallas and San Francisco, and will serve its U.S. customers even better than before. A special price campaign for H-Series 5G OTA Test Platforms after PTCRB approval is scheduled to be launched within 2019.
