OTA (Over-the-Air) Testing

OTA (Over-the-Air) Testing

Capacity of 4 OTA Chambers

With inhouse-developed test system, we can provide you 2 to 3 times faster OTA testing than the other commercial systems.

Our OTA testing capability covers the following technologies:
  • OTA A-GPS Testing
  • OTA 2G, 3G and 4G Testing
  • OTA Wi-Fi Testing
  • OTA Bluetooth TRP & TRS

We can help you to find solutions e.g. for: Degraded performance due to interference, call drops, high power consumption, to understand OTA certification and operator requirements as well as to innovate new test methods.

Verkotan employees have each decades of years of experience in the wireless performance testing and test system development area. Our employees have developed and specified new test methods for 3GPP, CTIA and R&D use. Our in-depth knowledge helps our customer to detect the root causes for the performance problems.

What is OTA Testing?

OTA testing is a requirement for CTIA and GCF certifications and is also often required by many carriers, vendors and standards organizations. Verkotan has the equipment, accreditation and experience of testing to provide our customers with high quality OTA testing and analyzing services. We can help you to meet OTA requirements stated by your wireless supplier or if your products need to be tested by a CTIA authorized test laboratory.
OTA testing measures device’s radiated Rf performance which is one of the most challenging product design areas in wireless devices. We can quickly locate the problems so that you can make the necessary design changes for the best possible RF performance. High accuracy OTA testing during the product R&D phase helps you to avoid very expensive product modifications at the final phase of the product development.

We perform all OTA testing in CTIA approved fully anechoic chambers to ensure that only signals to and from the device are measured. To measure each point, the positioning system moves the DUT (Device Under Test) relative to the measurement antenna.
