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 A-GPS 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
OTA Testing Chambers

Verkotan has four accredited high-quality OTA and antenna test chambers. Three of these chambers are capable of PA TaaS (antenna pattern test service) and AA TaaS  (active antenna test services). Test your devices in our state-of-art laboratories and ensure your wireless performance goals.

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.

We can provide support in creating new testing procedures and in applying standardized procedures prescribed by National and International specifications.
