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
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.
