The whole mobile ecosystem, including device, chipset, and mobile network operators, benefits from lab testing with real devices. The S8809A RF Field-to-Lab Toolset creates a representation of real-world conditions in a lab environment.

  • Test interoperability of devices and real networks.
  • Benchmark device performance in real-world RF mobility and interference conditions.
  • Verify new technology rollouts. Identify and resolve issues earlier in the R&D process
  • Test in a lab against measured field conditions to obtain high test coverage in a repeatable and controlled test environment.

The S8809A toolset is extendable with:

RF Field-to-Lab Channel Modeling

RF Field to Lab Channel Modeling software

With the RF Field-to-Lab tool, you can easily bridge the gap between lab and field testing under realistic air-interface conditions through seamless real-world representation of the environment. This process accelerates the validation of wireless devices and network equipment. The RF Field-to-Lab tool offers a repeatable and realistic lab-based test method that enables you to cost-effectively and quickly verify multiple designs or multiple revisions of a single design. You can also build a library of RF Field-to-Lab test cases containing data measured in various locations around the world.

The RF Field-to-Lab tool imports radio channel parameters (e.g. cell ID, RSRP, SNR, and channel state indicators) from the measurement files to create a channel model for the channel emulator. The RF Field-to-Lab tool delivers a reliable replication of recorded field conditions without the need for additional modeling or user input.

Channel Studio Geometric Channel Modeling Tool

Extend your S8809A toolset with the F9860000A Channel Studio Geometric Channel Modeling tool. The tool supports importing 3D antenna models and offers 3GPP-defined channel models to test V2X safety applications as well as on board Wi-Fi and cellular connection. It also supports device-to-device topologies.

The embedded GCM antenna model enables modeling arrays and beams and when combined with measured field data, you can re-create drive tests to verify massive MIMO base stations in real-world conditions.

Channel Studio is a state-of-the-art radio propagation channel modeling software. It supports user-defined 3D spatial scenarios and dynamic modeling of movement for 5G testing:

  • 3GPP 38.901 CDL FR1 and FR2 models
  • UMi, UMa, O2I, and I2O
  • SCME
