EMITE Achieves Over 1 Gbps OTA Throughput on Wi-Fi 6 Handheld Devices

EMITE has released IEEE 802.11ax (WiFi6) over-the-air (OTA) test capability on its WLAN OTA test systems for both Access Points and Wireless Stations. Downlink over-the-air PHY throughputs above 1 Gbps have been achieved for handheld devices with the WiFi 6 test feature currently in use by some customers. Wi-Fi 6 or 802.11ax is designed to operate in the existing 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz Wi-Fi spectrum. The 802.11ax standard is engineered to increase capacity by up to 4x, along with improving efficiency and coverage, to benefit both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands in a variety of environments including homes, schools, businesses, hotspots, airports, and more.

This is the first time a WiFi6 OTA E2E test has been reported for a handheld device and represents a giant leap forward for WLAN OTA Test Systems. Click here to learn more about the WLAN OTA Systems from EMITE.
