ETS-Lindgren Announces Industry-first Support of Signaling OTA Testing for IEEE 802.11 ac/n/a/g/b Devices Using Anritsu MT8862A Test Set

- Anritsu's Wireless Connectivity Test Set MT8862A Integrated with ETS-Lindgren's EMQ-100 Antenna Measurement Software Creates Accurate, Flexible Turnkey Solution -

RICHARDSON, Texas, June 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Anritsu Company and ETS-Lindgren announce groundbreaking support of IEEE 802.11 ac/n/a/g/b Over-the-Air (OTA) testing with an enhanced solution that integrates the Anritsu Wireless Connectivity Test Set MT8862A with the CTIA-compliant ETS-Lindgren EMQuest™ EMQ-100 Antenna Measurement Software. The accurate and flexible turnkey solution now supports 802.11 ac/n/a/g/b WLAN standards, providing device developers and manufacturers with a single solution to characterize and validate designs in accordance with current and emerging versions of the 802.11 standards.

The MT8862A is the first solution for testing 802.11 in ac/n/a/g/b devices in full signaling mode with built-in communications protocols. The MT8862A can conduct fast and accurate RF receiver and transmitter measurements for WLAN without the need of any device control. It can also perform end-to-end data throughput tests, as well as capture real-time protocol messages.

"Anritsu and ETS-Lindgren continue to develop leading-edge test solutions that enable developers and manufacturers to efficiently and confidently produce a new generation of mobile devices that are in line with market demands," said Paul Innis, Vice President and General Manager of Anritsu Company. "We are committed to developing solutions that meet and exceed future industry and carrier eco-system OTA test requirements.

"Anritsu has a long-standing track record of providing innovative first-to-market technology products to leading wireless component and device customers globally. This latest development indicates our intent to maintain wireless test leadership and ensures continued growth in our target markets. We view the Anritsu-ETS-Lindgren collaboration as a demonstration of our commitment in partnering with industry-leading companies," added Innis.  

"Our customers rely on our expertise to provide turnkey, world-class wireless OTA test solutions that include the test chamber, and all associated software and hardware. With our in-house test capabilities, we can document the quality of the Anritsu Wireless Connectivity Test Set MT8862A and its functionality with our wireless test systems," said Jari Vikstedt, Manager, Wireless Solutions, with ETS-Lindgren.  "Recently we've had more requests for OTA test solutions per the IEEE 802.11ac standard. With the newly developed MT8862A, we can meet our customers' expectations."

The MT8862A and EMQuest EMQ-100 provide a comprehensive solution that can test devices based on revisions of IEEE 802.11 technologies. Specialized calibration and validation methods are supported for WLAN OTA testing and other analysis, including TRP/TIS. 

The Wireless Connectivity Test Set MT8862A is a multi-version IEEE 802.11 instrument with the capability for wireless device calibration, WLAN RF parametric testing and functional testing, including Network Mode.  IEEE 802.11ac/n/a/b/g revisions are all supported for testing the transmitter and receiver performance of a multi-revision WLAN device.

"Currently the CTIA only requires testing up to IEEE 802.11n, but that will change in the near future. With the built-in support for advanced IEEE 802.11 standards in the MT8862A our customers will be ready when that time arrives," said Vikstedt.

ETS-Lindgren's EMQuest EMQ-100 offers a wide range of fully parameterized test methods for measuring basic antenna performance metrics, as well as testing both radiated and conducted performance of various wireless devices. Flexible in its design, the EMQuest EMQ-100 can be used to analyze antennas in stand-alone applications, or to test an embedded antenna system and radio module against any of the industry standard OTA radiated performance test requirements.

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
