MIMO Over the Air (OTA) Testing Insights

Methodology, benchmarking study results and the CTIA test plan


The MIMO OTA Test Plan v1.0 initially released in 2015 by CTIA – The Wireless Association, defines a test methodology for radiated performance measurements of LTE 2x2 downlink MIMO wireless devices.

Watch this OnDemand webinar to learn about the underlying principle behind MIMO OTA testing, the important highlights of the test plan and the process for CTIA test plan v1.0 authorization. Also presented are the results of a Signals Ahead MIMO OTA study that evaluated the RF performance of fifteen commercially-available smartphones in a wide range of price points.
