IoT OTA Measurements

Verkotan helps your products to market faster with the right testing and evaluation of your IoT performance. Our Narrowband IoT testing includes e.g. Power Consumption Measurements, Radiated Power & Sensitivity Measurements as well as Intermediate Channel Degradation Test for different IoT cellular standards.

IoT OTA Testing Capability

Radiated Power & Sensitivity Measurements

  • LTE CAT NB1 (NB-IoT) TRP&TIS
  • LTE CAT M1 TRP&TIS
  • LTE CAT 1 TRP&TIS
  • LTE CAT 0 TRP&TIS
  • Intermediate Channel Degradation Test
  • Power Consumption Measurement
Narrowband-IoT Technology

NB-IoT technology uses existing cellular network infrastructure to deliver excellent coverage and reliable connectivity. This approach is becoming adopted by major worldwide operators. The OTA test is critical for operators to qualify the interoperability and compliance of their NB-IoT devices. This is particularly important when a third-party enclosure is used with the device since the antenna coverage effects could be limited.

Verkotan provides the Narrowband-IoT wireless testing solution and gets your products to market faster with the right testing and insights to optimize your IoT designs.

Verkotan’s personnel is the frontrunner in the Narrowband-IoT wireless testing field and its in-house capabilities allow us to offer you a  powerful test solution for evaluation of IoT device performance, able to support you during each step of their activity.

Power Consumption Measurements

Power consumption is an important factor in IoT device design. In an IoT application, the device must operate in different states, e.g. data acquisition, data transmission, and deep sleep. The length of these cycles is determined by its intended use case. The battery life of the device depends heavily on its purpose, whether it is necessary to transmit signals often or seldom. Some uses require up-to-date, real-time data, so the device needs to be constantly transmitting. Other uses require transmissions very rarely.

The ability to accurately describe the power consumption is essential in reducing energy consumed and optimizing battery life. At Verkotan we provide power consumption measurements to optimize the battery life of your solution and determine the power consumption according to the user profile of the device.
IoT Testing Chamber

Our chamber is capable of performing pre-conformance IoT OTA testing for LTE-M & NB-IoT according to CTIA specifications.

SISO/MIMO Chamber

This lab can be used for 3GPP & CTIA SISO and pre-conformance MIMO Measurements. In this chamber we are able to create the radio environment according to client’s needs and test your device in a repeatable and reliable way. It is also utilized for 5G test system solutions development, and can be used for GNSS, WLAN and IoT testing.
