Anritsu and EMITE have announced that the Anritsu MT8820C Radio Communication Tester has been successfully used in combination with the EMITE E500 Reverberation Chamber and Anite Propsim FS8 channel emulator to test LTE Carrier Aggregation, using 2×2 MIMO and more realistic isotropic Urban-Macro (UMA) fading profiles. The tests were performed for a leading U.S. carrier.The MT8820C LTE One-Box Tester is a multi-format 2G, 3G, and LTE tester with capability for UE calibration, RF parametric testing, and functional testing, including call processing or no-call based testing. Supported formats include LTE-A, LTE, W-CDMA/HSPA CDMA2K up to 1xEV-DO rel. A, TD-SCDMA/HSPA, and GSM/GPRS/EGPRS. This tester provides the most stable and widely proven implementation of cellular standards for base station emulation and “call box” testing.EMITE’s unique multicavity mode-stirred source-stirred reverberation chamber solutions (MSRC) provide for a variety of fading scenarios at a fraction of the cost of alternative anechoic chamber-based test solutions. Along with conventional uniform, isotropic Rayleigh and more complex SCME-based fading profiles for MIMO OTA testing, the EMITE solutions are the only ones also offering other standardized fading profiles using the patented Sample Selection® technique, something unheard of in the wireless arena until now.
