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