Software option can evaluate 2×2 MIMO WLAN equipment
Anritsu has launched a 2×2 MIMO measurement software MX886200A-010 option for the wireless connectivity test set MT8862A. This release extends the measurement functions of the MT8862A to offer support for evaluating 2×2 MIMO WLAN equipment.
Most devices requiring high data transmission rates, such as smartphones, tablets and PCs use MIMO technology to increase the data transmission speed. MIMO uses a multi-antenna environment, which makes assuring communications quality is particularly difficult, explains Anritsu. In anticipation of more support calls from end users about communications quality issues, WLAN equipment makers are seeking support for MIMO measurements under actual operating conditions.
Anritsu’s wireless connectivity test set MT8862A is a measuring instrument for IEEE802.11ac/n/g/b/a WLAN equipment. By virtue of its built-in network mode, the MT8862A offers the world’s first test solution that covers all measurements of radio-wave coverage range, output signal quality, modulation accuracy and 2×2 MIMO of IEEE802.11ac WLAN equipment under actual operation conditions, says Anritsu. Installing the MX886200A-010 option to the MT8862A provides support for receiver sensitivity and transmit power measurements of 2×2 MIMO WLAN equipment using two MT8862A units in combination. This helps WLAN equipment end users to assure communications quality and troubleshoot the cause of communications errors.
Anritsu has been providing communications solutions for more than 120 years. The company’s test and measurement equipment includes wireless, optical, microwave/RF and digital instruments, operations support systems and customised software that can be used during R&D, manufacturing, installation, and maintenance. Anritsu also provides precision microwave/RF components, optical devices, and high-speed devices for design into communication products and systems.
