R&S®TS8991 OTA Performance Test System

Turnkey Over the Air (OTA) Solution for antenna, cellular and non-cellular testing

Key facts

  • Measurement of over-the-air (OTA) performance in line with CTIA, 3GPP, Wi-Fi Alliance, CWG, PTCRB standards and test cases
  • Various standard models of wireless performance test chambers (WPTC)
  • Support for all important wireless technologies, including cellular and non-cellular technologies
