User experience with 5G depends on the device's performance, but networks are complex. Testing in clean channel conditions is not enough to ensure that 5G devices will operate as expected in real environments. Channel emulation helps assess 5G real-world RF performance to ensure a positive customer experience. Innovative channel emulation solutions accelerate testing under complex RF conditions.

5G Massive MIMO Testing

High-density environments require 3D spatial beamforming, multiuser multiple-input / multiple-output (MU-MIMO), and more advanced spectrum utilization to increase wireless RF propagation channel effectiveness between devices and base stations.
