LTE provides global mobility with a wide range of services that includes voice, data and video in a mobile environment with lower deployment costs. Traffic growth, increasing data rates, adoption of new devices, etc. is placing pressure on the performance of mobile networks. In order to get best performance out of an LTE network, and… Read more »
Andreas Roessler — Rohde & Schwarz In this presentation test and measurement aspects will be discussed, challenges identified and status of current solutions being presented.
Dr. Joy Laskar — Centric Technologies In this presentation, we will begin with an overview on the need and applications of millimeter wave with multi-gigabit bandwidths (>3.5Gbps). Next, we will discuss the key design and test considerations for a single chip CMOS mmW system on a chip, including full radio and baseband functionality.
Dr. Vuk Marojevic – Virginia Tech This talk will present Virginia Tech’s results on LTE coexistence with Radar in the 3.5 GHz band, obtained at Wallops Island in August 2013. These test results provide an important stepping stone towards secondary usage of federal spectrum, encouraging further research and innovation in this area.
In this panel session, we will hear from the industry’s leading OTA users and advocates their perspectives on the strategic role that OTA plays, the latest in OTA measurement techniques, and where and when OTA ideally fits within the mobile device design cycle.
Derek Skousen — Bluetest | Thorsten Hertel — Rohde & Schwarz This joint presentation will provide a high-level overview of over-the-air (OTA) testing now and into the future including the use of dynamic multipath environments. We will also discuss multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) OTA test methodologies, how they are being addressed by the standard’s organisations, and… Read more »
Louis LaMedica — Wireless Consultant (formerly Verizon Wireless) In this presentation, Louis LaMedica helps unravel the mystery and share his invaluable experience behind what it takes to get a mobile device certified and network ready.
