CEDAR PARK, Texas, April 15, 2008 – When the highly regarded monthly publication Microwave Journal needed an industry expert to comment on antenna measurement and test technology, who did it turn to for this expertise? The answer: Dr. Vince Rodriguez, ETS-Lindgren's senior principal antenna design engineer. For an executive interview on the rapidly developing WiMAX and wireless testing methodology, who did it turn to? The answer: Bryan Sayler, ETS-Lindgren's senior vice president and general manager.
In January 2008, Dr. Rodriguez launched the publication's first “Ask the Expert” column. This column was the evolution of the publication's popular “Expert Advice” column managed for over a half century by Harlan Howe, Jr. - the illustrious Editor of the Microwave Journal. Upon Mr. Howe's retirement, the publication sought an expert in Dr. Rodriguez for the first column since Mr. Howe's retirement.
In the inaugural column, Dr. Rodriguez addressed selecting the optimum test environment to measure an antenna – considering rectangular and taper chambers, compact ranges and near field ranges.
In March 2008, when Microwave Journal needed expertise on wireless testing, it likewise sought out ETS-Lindgren. Mr. Sayler provided an in-depth executive interview about ETS-Lindgren's involvement as a member of the WiMAX Forum™ and the company's role in developing its new Radiated Performance Test (RPT) system. Designed to provide detailed information on the radiated transmit and receive performance of wireless devices in an over-the-air environment, ETS-Lindgren lent its expertise in developing the test protocol and turn-key measurement system.
The interview accompanied an extensive related article by Dr. Michael Foegelle, ETS-Lindgren's director of technology development, titled “Determining Radiated Performance of Mobile WiMAX Devices.”
