OTA measurements of LTE-Advanced devices with multiple carriers and higher order MIMO

The rapid increase in number of used carriers and MIMO streams in modern LTE devices introduce new challenges when measuring radio performance. This white paper gives an introduction to Over-the-Air (OTA) measurements of such devices and what to consider when moving from a conducted measurement to measurements in a multipath faded OTA environment. It includes configuration examples using Bluetest's RTS65 reverberation test system and the

Throughput Measurements

The current trend in active device over-the-air (OTA) testing is to characterize the system performance via data throughput. With Bluetest measurement software the throughput can be measured at either IP or MAC layer in a fast, repeatable, and convenient way.
