Over-The-Air-Testing (OTA) Testing
OTA certification testing to ensure the accurate, repeatable, and uniform testing of Mobile Stations and Modular Devices. Certification testing to meet industry, carrier and/or CTIA standards.
- Total Radiated Power (TRP)
- Total Isotropic Sensitivity (TIS)
- GPS and aGPS Position Location Accuracy and Sensitivity
- CTIA Test Plan for Mobile Station Over the Air Performance
- Carrier Specific Test Plans
- Engineering Antenna Performance
Over-the-air measurements are performed by measuring the radiated transmit power at various locations surrounding the device to produce a spatially distributed three-dimensional characterization of the transmit performance of the EUT.
Sensitivity measurements are performed by determining the minimum forward-link power to maintain a specific error rate (FER, BER, BLER, PER, etc., depending on the air interface) at each measured location on the sphere in accordance with applicable industry standards.
Testing is performed to determine the wireless devices ability to obtain GPS and aGPS signals. Conducted measurements are performed in addition to radiated OTA testing to measure the carrier-to-noise ratios along points of the major axis of the EUT. Testing is performed to determine the accuracy performance of the carrier network and the wireless test device as a system.
