R&S®TS8991 OTA Performance Test System

Turnkey Over the Air (OTA) Solution for antenna, cellular and non-cellular testing


Over-the-Air (OTA) measurements are an essential part of the performance evaluation and certification of wireless-enabled devices.
The R&S®TS8991 OTA performance test system measures the transmit power and receiver sensitivity performance metrics such as EIRP, TRP, EIS, TRS/TIS, co-existence, desense, intermediate channel sensitivities as specified by CTIA and similarly 3GPP. MIMO OTA testing is supported by the Rohde & Schwarz Decomposition method.
