Mobile OTA (Over-The-Air) Performance test is a radiated performance test defined by CTIA – The Wireless Association for wireless devices to verify their 3-dimension “Radiated RF Power” and “Receiver Performance”.Its main test items include TRP (Total Radiated Power) and TIS (Total Isotropic Sensitivity) two categories. However, in WiMAX Forum and Wi-Fi Alliance certification field–CWG-RF (Converged Wireless Group RF) – is used to name OTA respectively.
Moreover, under U.S. FCC (Federal Communications Commission) Emergency 911 (E911) requirement, cellular devices are required to be enabled by A-GPS (Assisted GPS) system that can have the GPS satellites position the emergency call dispatcher within seconds, rather than several minutes, even in very poor signal conditions. The OTA performance is one of the key criteria to ensure the functionality of the A-GPS system.
With the increasing in demand for mobile data transmission, wireless communication technology from a single antenna to the direction of multiple antenna development, the use of multi-antenna spatial multiplexing applications to increase the data rate. It brings more challenges for OTA Performance Test. Currently, there are several wireless communication systems support MIMO, such as IEEE 802.11n, IEEE 802.11ac, HSPA+, WiMAX, and LTE, etc. At this stage, MIMO OTA Performance testing focuses on the validation of wireless communication devices’ downlink data throughput in different channel environment.
