ACE MX MIMO Channel Emulators

The ACE MX product line is an easy-to-use family of fully-featured channel emulators designed to accurately create complex fading channels for testing the most advanced wireless technology and devices.

The ACE MX patented design is purpose-built for MIMO, and has been architected and designed from the ground up to meet the demanding needs of OFDM and MIMO-based systems, in addition to the channel emulation and testing requirements of previous generation SISO 2G/3G wireless technologies

The ACE MX product line combines industry-leading channel emulation capabilities with a modular product solution to deliver a range of configurations for MIMO system testing. The intuitive and easy-to-use configuration and control interface enables efficient, automated and repeatable testing of LTE-Advanced, LTE , WiMax and other 4G infrastructure and devices.

The ACE MX is a universal frequency, fully bi-directional channel emulator supporting SISO up to 8×4 MIMO systems and features built-in real time fading including industry standard models or custom designed models that allow users to recreate a variety of typical MIMO scenarios for accurate performance and interoperability testing. This real-world emulation in a lab environment replaces traditional wireless field tests that are time consuming and lack repeatability.

The ACETM MX enables users to:

  • Reliably and accurately test performance of MIMO-based systems over range and in motion in impaired environments
  • Quickly analyze test data enabling faster identification and resolution of all system design elements that reduce performance
  • Streamline device testing by providing direct connections to wireless devices and eliminating external RF devices
  • Test MIMO algorithms and debug errors.

Using Azimuth’s DIRECTORTM II Test Executive software, tests run on the ACE MX Channel Emulator can be fully managed and automated reducing time to market.
