Mobile Terminal OTA Testing

Over-the-Air testing is a requirement for PTCRB certification 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 Capabilities

OTA 2G, 3G and 4G 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 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 you can make the necessary design changes for the best possible RF performance. High accuracy OTA testing during the product development phase helps you avoid very expensive product modifications at the final phase of product development.

We can help you understand OTA requirements for PTCRB and all operator requirements around the world.

With our extensive experience in OTA testing, we are capable of providing CTIA Authorized OTA testing services efficiently and faster than other commercially used systems. Our in-depth knowledge helps you 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
MIMO OTA Test Capabilities

MIMO OTA Testing

  • We offer MIMO OTA pre-conformance measurements according to the newest CTIA specifications.
  • MIMO OTA Testing measures the changes in data throughput and 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 modifications at the final phase of the product development.

 

Advanced MIMO OTA Testing for R&D

  • We are able to provide MIMO OTA measurements for devices that supporting 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.
Wireless Systems
  • GSM Bands
  • UMTS Bands
  • LTE Bands
  • LTE CAT NB1
  • LTE CAT M1
  • CDMA bands
  • TD-SCDMA Bands
  • GPS
  • Passive Antenna Testing
  • Glonass
  • Beidou
  • FM Radio
  • Wlan

Mobile Terminal OTA Test Chamber

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.

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.
