Critical WiMAX Product Design and Testing Demands Effective Channel Emulation

by John Griesing

Multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) technology is the foundation of the next generation of mobile WiMAX products. In lab-controlled channel emulation, using a channel emulator is required to accurately characterize the effect of multichannel RF interactions on the conformance, performance and interoperability of MIMO and single-input single-output (SISO) WiMAX systems.
