ETS-Lindgren has announced the integration of the StarPoint SP9500 test instrument and platform with its CTIA-compliant EMQuest Antenna Measurement software. The integration expands ETS-Lindgren's turnkey 5G test solutions for its customers. EMQuest now supports the StarPoint SP9500 Communication Test Set, the world's first testing platform that fully meets the requirements of 100 MHz channel bandwidth for 5G New Radio (NR) nodes including FR1 (sub6 GHz band), carrier aggregation, downlink 8-stream/uplink 4-stream MIMO, and other characteristics as defined in the 3GPP R15 wireless device test specification.
The SP9500 can also be used for fully functional 5G base station emulation with all wireless test set functions such as connection, coverage performance, and RF characteristic analysis. Using a multiple test configuration, larger-scale MIMO and carrier aggregation may be supported to address the evolution of future technologies. The integration is ideal for ETS-Lindgren's global customer requirements for current and future turnkey 5G test solutions.
ETS-Lindgren has also installed the world's first CTIA Authorized Test Lab. The company’s active contributions to the CTIA and other industry standards organizations has resulted in many "industry-first" efforts that advance the technology for wireless device test and measurement. Customers rely on ETS-Lindgren's ongoing standards involvement to ensure they are prepared not only to meet today's standards, but tomorrow's as well. Their latest technical advancements include dozens of customized 5G NR test systems to meet specific user requirements. ETS-Lindgren will begin shipping these drivers this month to EMQuest customers.
