ETS-Lindgren's WiMAX™ RPT Test Lab is fully configured for radiated performance testing of IEEE 802.16e WiMAX™ and WiBro mobile stations, for both WiMAX RPT certification or pre-certification as well as research and development testing. The system can also be configured to test various other 2G, 3G, and 4G wireless devices, as well as WLAN and WPAN technologies such as 802.11/Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. Configuration options are available to support testing of laptops, PDAs, and other mobile form factor devices, including mobile handsets with a simulated human operator head and hand combination. This system can also be used to perform passive antenna measurements at test distances in both near-and-far-field test conditions for determining more generic antenna properties.
ETS-Lindgren's WiMAX™ RPT Test System is designed to provide the user with detailed information on the radiated transmit and receive performance of wireless devices. In addition to the primary performance metrics of Total Radiated Power (TRP) and Total Isotropic Sensitivity (TIS), the Effective Isotropic Radiated Power (EIRP) and Effective Isotropic Sensitivity (EIS) pattern information can be used to evaluate other antenna performance quantities such as directivity, gain, and efficiency. The ability to test active devices in an over-the-air environment allows evaluation of various interaction factors such as platform desensitization, which can affect the performance of the radio when in use, but are impossible to determine through conducted testing. The use of traceable instrumentation and precision range calibrations allow for reliable comparison of performance data from site to site.
ETS-Lindgren's EMQuest™ EMQ-100 Antenna Measurement Software offers fully automated 2D (polar) and 3D (spherical) pattern measurement capabilities as well as frequency response measurements for both passive antennas and active wireless mobile stations (cell phones, laptops, PDAs, etc.). A wide range of fully parameterized test methods allows extremely versatile testing of both vector and scalar quantities in either transmit or receive mode. Post-processing capabilities include calculation of antenna properties such as half-power beamwidth, directivity, gain, radiation efficiency, total radiated power, and total isotropic sensitivity.
EMQuest™ also calculates industry specific quantities such as near-horizon partial radiated power and near-horizon partial isotropic sensitivity.
The optional EMQ-105 Network Throughput Tester add-on module provides a range of tests for determining throughput vs. time, throughput vs. attenuation (path loss), and throughput vs. attenuation patterns. With this option, application layer performance can be determined for virtually any wireless networking device.
Advanced graphing capabilities allow acquired data to be displayed in a variety of 2D and 3D formats. Tabular data can be exported to Microsoft Excel™ spreadsheets. Reports can be exported to PDF files, or saved in RTF format for import to Microsoft Word™.
