OTA Test Services
OTA 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G Testing
OTA WLAN Testing
OTA Bluetooth and BLE TRP & TIS testing
OTA GNSS Testing
For all bands and common radio systems
(GSM, UMTS, LTE, LTE-M, NB-IoT, etc.)
OTA testing measures the radiated RF performance of a device. It is one of the most challenging product design areas in wireless devices. We can quickly locate the problems so you can make the necessary design changes for the best possible RF performance. High-accuracy OTA testing during the product development phase helps you to avoid very expensive product modification costs at the final phase of the product development.
We can help you to understand the OTA requirements for PTCRB and all operator requirements around the world.
With our extensive experience in OTA testing, we are capable of providing OTA testing services efficiently and faster than other commercially used systems. Our in-depth knowledge helps you to find solutions for degraded performance due to interference, call drops, high power consumption.
We can test e.g. the following products
- Information technology products
- Electrical products
- Communication Products
Our test capabilities cover testing of wide range of radio systems. TRP (total radiated power) and TIS (total isotropic sensitivity) can be measured according to the industry standards. Our state-of-the-art laboratories support testing up to 5G. Here is a list of the radio systems supported in our laboratories. We provide testing according to the 3GPP and ETSI standards including RED conformance testing.
- 5G Bands
- GSM Bands
- UMTS Bands
- LTE Bands
- LTE CAT NB1
- LTE CAT M1
- CDMA bands
- TD-SCDMA Bands
- Passive Antenna Testing
- FM Radio
MIMO OTA Testing
- We offer MIMO OTA pre-conformance measurements.
- MIMO OTA Testing measures the changes in data throughput and the signal strength of the device when it is moved further from the closest base station. High accuracy MIMO OTA Measurements during the product R&D phase helps you to avoid very expensive product modification costs at the final phase of the product development.
Advanced MIMO OTA Testing for R&D
- We provide MIMO OTA measurements for devices that support 4×2 MIMO and 4×4 MIMO.
Fast MIMO OTA 2×2 Testing for Pre-conformance MIMO Testing
- Fast MIMO OTA is a replacement for CTIA MIMO OTA, and is extremely efficient for pre-conformance MIMO measurements. The test cases provide similar results to the official CTIA MIMO OTA testing but testing itself is 5 to 10 times faster.
Verkotan has one accredited high-quality OTA and antenna test chamber for SISO and MIMO test purposes.
We can provide support in creating new testing procedures and in applying standardized procedures prescribed by National and International specifications.
This lab can be used for 3GPP & SISO and pre-conformance MIMO Measurements. In this chamber, we are able to create a radio environment according to the client’s needs and test the device in a repeatable and reliable way. The chamber is also utilized for 5G test system solutions development and can be used for GNSS, WLAN, and IoT testing.
- Diameter: 6.0m
- Height: 5.8m
- Measurement Distance 2.2m
- 11 pcs. SISO – 16 pcs. MIMO
- 600MHz – 6GHz

Over-the-Air testing of millimetre waves
Millimetre wave 5G technology provides lower latency, greater speed, and better quality of service. Nevertheless, millimetre waves pose also new challenges to network connections due to the short wavelengths. What are these problems, how are they solved and how can Verkotan help verify 5G millimetre wave connections? Continue reading to find out! Read more
Near Field to Far Field Transformation
Near field to far field (NF-FF) transformation means transforming the near field antenna radiation pattern measurement to far field radiation pattern. NF-FF transformation is used in OTA testing process of large antennas since the antenna performance must be measured in far-field condition, which is possible only in huge test chambers. Continue reading to find out more information on what NF-FF transformation is and how it is done! Read more
