Bluetest will hold three workshops in China in October, 2013:
Bluetest’s distributor ITGT will host a MIMO OTA seminar in cooperation with Bluetest on the 24th of September in Taipei, Taiwan. The seminar will give you a presentation and introduction to Bluetest as well as a deeper technical presentation of the reverberation chamber theory and you will gain a better understanding on Bluetest’s product offerings. Bluetest is actively driving the proposed RC methodology in CTIA and 3GPP and a standardization progress overview will also be given during the seminar.
Bluetest has now released support for OTA MIMO LTE Carrier Aggregation (LTE CA) measurements. The first systems were delivered to customers in June.
Bluetest will exhibit at the CTIA 2013 show in Las Vegas, USA, May 21-23. The exhibition will be at the Sands Expo and Convention Center Las Vegas, NV. We will have the RTS60 and TTS11 in the booth for live LTE and WLAN measurements so take the opportunity to learn more about the reverberation test system and its capabilities to do fast and easy 2x2 MIMO measurements on wireless devices.

Welcome to join us in booth #3055.
Bluetest is Platinum Sponsor of the 7th European Conference on Antennas and Propagation, EuCAP 2013, held in our hometown Gothenburg. The conference and exhibition will take place 8-12 April at Svenska Mässan (Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre) and we are hoping that you want to join us for this week.
On November 9th Bluetest moved the head office to new premises.
CEO Kjell Olovsson says: “The new premises are built to our specification and meet our demand for more office space, lab space and space for assembly of our MIMO enabled Over-The-Air (OTA) test systems. This means we can increase our R&D and manufacturing capacity even further to meet the rapidly growing need for OTA measurement systems capable of handling MIMO measurements on LTE, WLAN and other wireless standards.”
Electronica is one of the leading trade fairs for the electronics industry. The trade fair will take place in Munich, Germany, 13-16 November at Messe München. Bluetest is co-exhibiting with our distributor Gigacomp and we will have an RTS60 in the booth together with the TTS11. Visitors will be able to see live demonstrations of active measurements such as LTE/MIMO.
Come and visit us in hall B3, booth 347!

Bluetest will attend at the 2012 IEEE International Symposium on Antennas and Propagation (AP-S) in Chicago, IL, USA on July 8-14. Bluetest will together with Chalmers University hold a half day short course on July 8 called OTA Measurements in Reverberation Chamber. In addition to the short course Bluetest has two contributions to the conference together with Chalmers University that will be presented on Wednesday, July 12. Bluetest’s distributor MI Technologies will exhibit in booth # 406.
For fiscal year 2012, Bluetest AB increased sales more than 100 percent – achieving the highest turnover in the history of the company. Reasons include high demand of solutions for Over-The-Air MIMO measurements of mobile phones and other wireless devices.
Kjell Olovsson, Bluetest AB CEO, says: “Our sales of MIMO enabled reverberation test systems used for mobile phones and mobile devices, currently the biggest market segment for Bluetest, has increased according to plan. In addition, we are meeting solid demand from our customers for the recently introduced W-LAN test system.”
Bluetest is now launching the new WLAN IP throughput tester TTS11 (Throughput Test System 11), an instrument for IP throughput testing for the WLAN 802.11a/b/g/n standards. To measure the throughput versus received power level is the best way to characterize a WLAN device on the IP level. The TTS11 is an excellent tool to fast and accurately distinguish between a god and bad transceiver designs.
SANTA CLARA, Calif., Feb. 7, 2012
Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced that Bluetest AB now supports Agilent’s PXI wireless communications test set. The Bluetest RTS (Reverberation Test System) uses the Agilent PXT test set to evaluate LTE devices over the air.
OTA testing of LTE user equipment is essential to evaluate and prove performance prior to commercial deployment. Bluetest offers a range of fast and accurate solutions to these measurement challenges.
The reverberation chamber has been included in 3GPP’s technical specification that describes test procedure for measurements of the 3G/2G user equipment/mobile stations. The reverberation chamber has been included as an alternative test method for the OTA (Over-The-Air)SISO measurements.
The new technical specification can be found here
Master students Jacob Hidén Rudander and Ikram-E-Khuda have received the RFID Nordic scholarship Award 2011 for the Master project “RFID Measurements in Reverberation Chamber”, finalized in Dec 2010. The award amounts to SEK 20 000.
Bluetest will attend the ISAP 2011 conference in Jeju, South Korea together with our distributor Dymstec. Bluetest’s and Dymstec’s contribution will be presented in a poster presentation at the conference.
Prof. Per-Simon Kildal is an invited speaker at ISAP 2011 and he will give a presentation Wednesday 26th at 11.10-11.40 about Fast and Cost Effective OTA-MIMO Measurements in Reverberation Chamber. You can find his abstract and biography here http://www.isap2011.org/sub04_02.php
Elektroniktidningen in Sweden has published an article about Bluetest in the August issue of the magazine. The article describes the success Bluetest has had the past 10 years and how the market starts to accept the Reverberation Test System as a good method to verify small antennas and terminals with small antennas. The article is in Swedish and you can find it here.
Professor Per-Simon Kildal, the founder and main owner of Bluetest AB, has received the prestigious Distinguished Achievements Award of IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society (APS) for “For pioneering contributions to design and characterization methods for reflectors, feeds and small antennas utilizing soft and hard surfaces, and reverberation chamber for Over-The-Air measurements”.
