MIMO LTE OTA measurements in reverberation chamber: rich isotropic reference environment makes agreement with theoretical system model
Paper in proceedings, 2012

The reverberation chamber has during the last 10 years been developed into an accurate instrument for OTA measurements, having a well-defined rich isotropic multipath environment. This has been introduced as a new reference environment for testing of wireless devices, complementing the traditional anechoic reference environment. The rich isotropic multipath environment and the definition of an ideal error-correcting digital receiver have made it possible to develop simple theoretical models that predict the measured throughput data rate in a reverberation chamber versus received power within a few tenth of dBs The present paper overviews the developments of the reverberation chamber that has made it possible to achieve such agreement, as well as the on-going work of determining relevance of the rich isotropic environment compared to real-life environments.
