EMITE announced that it will provide full support to the new Wi-Fi 6E frequency band for the 802.11ax standard on its E-Series, I-Series and F-Series test platforms. This is a big step forward in WLAN OTA testing solutions as they are the first to provide fully-automated TCP/UDP/FTP MIMO OTA throughput testing as well as SISO TRP/TIS OTA testing capabilities for the new Wi-Fi band.
The market is currently eagerly awaiting the deployment of Wi-Fi 6E with OEMs announcing the first Wi-Fi 6E compatible routers, access points, and devices in 2021. An additional chunk of 1200 MHz in the new 6 GHz frequency band provides a channel capacity increase of almost 200%, and devices with Wi-Fi 6E compatible radios will benefit from a less crowded spectrum band with enhanced features. The new band is also expected to bring an expansion push for wireless IoT.
The EMITE-unique monitoring of device temperature, battery level, modulation analyses and PHY throughput in real-time measurements is also available for the new release in Wi-Fi 6E.
“We have again brought out test system to the top standard, no other platform worldwide can test combined MIMO throughput and SISO TRP/TIS performance Over-the-Air for both access points and stations as devices under test. A few of our customers are already using it, which will certainly bring advanced features to their own manufactured devices over competitors. It is becoming normal for EMITE to become a worldwide-first on developments, but we are always equally honoured when that happens” said David A. Sánchez‐Hernández, CEO of EMITE.
