Supporting OTA measurements

Anritsu and EMITE supporting OTA measurements on IEEE 802.11be (Wi-Fi 7) devices

Anritsu Corporation and EMITE have announced the enhanced functionality to the Over-the-Air (OTA) measurement solution, allowing measuring to compliance with the latest Wireless LAN standard IEEE 802.11be.

The companies say IEEE 802.11be is being standardised as the successor to IEEE 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6/6E) and is targeted to realise high-speed communications that significantly exceed IEEE 802.11ax. The standard is expected to be a fundamental technology supporting the latest applications and services, such as ultra-high-resolution video streaming beyond 4K and AR/VR.

Anritsu says its Wireless Connectivity Test Set MT8862A has been integrated with all portfolio of EMITE Anechoic and Reverberation Chambers (picture of E-Series Reverberation Chamber as an example), allowing developers to measure the OTA Total Radiated Power (TRP)/Total Isotropic Sensitivity (TIS) performance of IEEE 802.11be devices in a repeatable environment.

Offering integrated communications protocols and optimised performance for testing, EMITE chambers and Anritsu MT8862A can  provide reliable characterisation of the Wi-Fi 7 devices on the market.

“We are glad to commit ourselves to our customers and lead the market with the implementation of the latest technology for WiFi (IEEE 802.11be). Having the collaboration of Anritsu and by working with top tier companies in the telecommunication market lead us to strive for excellency,” said Miguel Mora, Head of Support department at EMITE.

Keita Masuhara, Product Manager, IoT Test Solutions Div., Anritsu Corporation, said, “We are proud to release the latest solution with leading-edge company. The newest standard enables wider bandwidth on the new frequency band. Anritsu makes effort to contribute to providing valuable test solutions collaborating with leading partners.”
