Agilent Technologies Inc. and the China Academy of Telecommunication Research (Telecommunication Metrology Center) (CATR/TMC) have agreed to work together on TD-LTE MIMO over-the-air (OTA) test research. The two will focus their collaboration on MIMO OTA standardization using TD-LTE MIMO OTA two-stage test methods. Agilent has in-depth knowledge and experience in wireless test solutions, MIMO OTA test solutions, and MIMO OTA performance simulation. CATR (TMC) has long established expertise in OTA test standards and OTA certification testing. The teams have agreed to conduct the research jointly in the CATR (TMC) test lab. The plan is to then submit the research results to standard groups such as 3GPP, CTIA, and CCSA (China Communications Standards Association) as proposals for new and more effective test approaches and procedures…VAD Wick Hill will distribute high-performance wireless networks from Xirrus in the UK. Calif.-based Xirrus manufactures array-based solutions which provide wireless networks with wired-like reliability, a high level of security and the opportunity to expand wireless use without major infrastructure change.
