Bluetest and Anritsu have together with Bluetest's Korean distributor Dymstec and one of the Korean mobile operators now implemented support for over-the air measurements on 3-band MIMO carrier aggregation LTE measurements. The solution is using Anritsu's MT8820C Radio Communication Analyzer and Bluetest's RTS60 Reverberation Test System with 8 available measurement antennas. The solution was thanks to good cooperation between Bluetest and Anritsu released right before Christmas to support the launch of 3-band carrier aggregation services in Korea.
Bluetest is happy to announce the expansion of the sales network in Spain and Portugal. Thanks to the joint venture between Bluetest’s current distributor Gigacomp in Germany and MRC Components we can expand our geographical territory and closer serve the Spanish and Portuguese markets. With the long experience of Bluetest’s products, Gigacomp-MRC will be able to give the high level local sales support in the area that our customers require.
Bluetest will attend the CTIA 2014 trade show at the Super Mobility Week, 9-11 September. We will be demonstrating the RTS60 with the aim of presenting the value of realistic system testing of LTE devices. You will find us in booth #6040 in Sands Expo and Convention Center, Las Vegas, USA.
So join us and let us discuss how you can optimize your devices’ RF performance.

This year’s ISAP2013 conference will be held in Nanjing, China 23-25 October, 2013 and Bluetest is the Silver Sponsor of the conference. We will have a booth where we will present our products and you can learn more about the reverberation test system. Welcome to our booth A10!
Bluetest will exhibit at the Futurecom exhibition in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil 21-24 October. The exhibition will be held at the Riocentro Convention Center. Futurecom is Latin America’s largest event in the ICT industry and we will be there to present our reverberation test system solutions for testing antennas and wireless devices. You will find us at the Swedish Pavilion which is located at stand number D36.
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.
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.
