CTIA operators have recommended that the CTIA’s MIMO OTA test methodology should be released on March 30, 2014.

The CTIA MIMO OTA Sub Group (MOSG), founded in March 2011, has been researching and developing a radiated test plan for MIMO (multiple input multiple output) devices which will form an integral part of the CTIA’s certification programme. The MIMO OTA project has considered four test technologies:

  • Multi- or single-cluster anechoic
  • Reverberation chamber, with an without channel emulation
  • Decomposition method
  • Two-stage method

Since its inception, the MOSG has learnt about the characterisation of all four test techniques and the characteristics of the various MIMO OTA propagation environments.

MIMO OTA in Taiwan

As a leading test lab in Taiwan, SGS will be the first to offer true MIMO OTA test services to its customers. With the MIMO OTA system up and running, customers will benefit from the rapid development of 4G technology that stimulate the needs of MIMO ready mobile terminals, which will bring in great business opportunities and technological advances in the ecosystem.
