Anritsu Corporation announces that launch of its 2×2 MIMO Measurement Software MX886200A-010. The new testing solution is designed to extend the measurement functions of the company’s Wireless Connectivity Test Set MT8862A with support for evaluating 2×2 MIMO WLAN equipment.
The Wireless Connectivity Test Set MT8862A is a measuring instrument for IEEE802.11ac/n/g/b/a WLAN equipment. Using its built-in network mode, it measures the radio-wave coverage range, receiver sensitivity, and modulation accuracy of WLAN equipment under actual operating conditions.
Installing the MX886200A-010 Option in the MT8862A Supports:
- Receiver sensitivity and transmit power measurements of 2×2 MIMO WLAN equipment using two MT8862A units in combination.
- It helps WLAN equipment end users to assure communications quality and troubleshoot the cause of communications errors.
- Most devices requiring high data transmission rates, such as smartphones, tablets, PCs, etc., are now using MIMO technology to increase the data transmission speed.
- Adding this 2×2 MIMO measurement function to Anritsu’s popular MT8862A will help improve the quality of WLAN equipment.
With this launch, Anritsu’s MT8862A is said to have become the world’s first measuring instrument which covers all measurements of output signal quality, transmit power, receiver sensitivity, 2×2 MIMO, etc., of IEEE802.11ac WLAN equipment under actual operation conditions using its built-in network mode.
Since MIMO uses a multi-antenna environment, assuring communications quality is harder than when not using MIMO. Consequently, WLAN equipment makers are anticipating more support calls from end users related to communications quality issues, and they urgently need support for MIMO measurements under actual operating conditions.
Lauding it further, Anritsu newly developed 2×2 MIMO Measurement Solution MX886200A-010 option for its Wireless Connectivity Test Set MT8862A meets this need by offering a solution for evaluating communications quality of 2×2 MIMO WLAN equipment under actual operating conditions.
MIMO technologies are increasingly used today in IOT-driven WLAN technologies. Home appliances such as printers and televisions, in-vehicle equipment, industrial machinery, sensors, etc requires high data transmission rates. Smartphones and AV-related equipment also transfer large data volumes in short time periods wherein, MIMO technologies are handsomely adopted for increasing data rates.
Key Features Include:
- Communications Quality Assurance and Fault Troubleshooting
Evaluating WLAN equipment under operating conditions helps cut the risk of poor communications quality at end-user usage as well as helps isolate causes at communications faults.
- Easy Operation and Measurement
Measurement is easy by simply connecting the MT8862A and WLAN equipment; no specialist knowledge is required to control the WLAN DUT so even technicians with no experience in configuring the measurement system can make accurate measurements quickly.
The 2×2 MIMO Measurement Software MX886200A-010 is an option for the MT8862A. Installing the firmware and option license from the web browser to MT8862A supports evaluation of 2×2 MIMO WLAN equipment using two combined MT8862A units.
