R&S®TS8991 OTA Performance Test System

CTIA compliant OTA measurements – LTE and MIMO inside


Over-the-Air (OTA) measurements are an essential part of the certification testing of wireless devices which require an omni directional antenna radiation pattern.
The R&S®TS8991 OTA performance test system measures the spatial radiation and sensitivity characteristic as specified by CTIA and similarly by 3GPP. MIMO OTA testing is supported by the Rohde & Schwarz two-channel method.
