WiMAX™ RPT Radiated Performance Test Lab
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.
