Kyrio, a subsidiary of CableLabs, Inc., has purchased the R&S TS8991 OTA Performance Test System to test wireless devices for its expanding customer base. The R&S TS8991 test system measures transmit power and receiver sensitivity performance metrics such as EIRP, TRP, EIS, TRS/TIS, co-existence, and intermediate channel sensitivities as specified by CTIA.
As the complexity and interoperability of devices continues to become more difficult, network operators and device manufacturers must ensure that their devices perform according to stringent specifications in order to ensure a high quality of experience (QoE) for end users. Over-the-air (OTA) testing is becoming increasingly important as standards organizations and network providers look for more accurate methods to predict real-world performance of a mobile wireless device.
“At Kyrio, we understand that that there is more to conformance testing than just the test itself,” said Mitchell Ashley, president and general manager of Kyrio. “RF testing is a tricky business. Our customers have come to expect a thorough and complete analysis of how their devices actually perform in the real world. They look to us for actionable insights that will help them optimize the quality and performance of their devices. We are very pleased to be working with a partner such as Rohde & Schwarz who is helping us turn our vision into a reality.”
