4CC LTE-A FDD carrier aggregation testing takes off
The combination also supports more realistic isotropic urban-macro (UMA) fading profiles. The tests were performed for a leading US carrier.
The R&S CMWflexx is designed for testing LTE-A with a high number of component carriers. The unit is the latest addition to the R&S CMW500 wideband communication tester family. The instrument can be used in all phases of product development and production and supports all common cellular and non-cellular wireless technologies.
EMITE’s multicavity mode-stirred and source-stirred reverberation chamber solutions (MSRC) provide a variety of fading scenarios at a fraction of the cost of alternative anechoic-chamber-based test solutions. Along with conventional uniform, isotropic Rayleigh and more complex SCME-based fading profiles for MIMO OTA testing, the EMITE solutions claim to be the only ones that also offer other standardized fading profiles using the patented Sample Selection technique.
