EB Propsim F8 Radio Channel Emulator Provides Advanced MIMO OTA Wireless Testing At Centre For Wireless Communications (CWC)

OULU, Finland, March 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- EB, Elektrobit Corporation (OMX: EBC1V), a developer of cutting-edge embedded technology solutions for automotive and wireless industries, today announced that the Centre for Wireless Communications (CWC), a project-funded research group operating in conjunction with the Department of Communications Engineering at the University of Oulu, Finland, is employing EB Propsim F8 radio channel emulator and EB MIMO OTA Application to provide wireless testing and research abilities under the most realistic propagation conditions. The EB Propsim F8 MIMO OTA emulator is mainly used to test LTE and LTE-Advanced wireless communication, to provide a real world simulated environment.

Having acquired EB Propsim F8, the Centre for Wireless Communications is using a piece of test equipment that can emulate real-world wireless environments to provide accurate LTE and LTE-Advanced testing, something that will position CWC as the premier center for radio channel and antenna research. The CWC chose EB Propsim F8 MIMO OTA emulator because of the ability to flexibly test different MIMO OTA configurations and because of the future-proofing the technology inherently came with, allowing 4G testing and eventually newer standards to work within its testing chamber.

"CWC makes continuous contributions to the development of the most advanced communication systems and standards," said Janne Kolu, Vice President, Test Tools at EB. "The future in wireless communication should enable higher data rates. Understanding the radio channel effect on product performance is essential in research and development of wireless technologies."

After employing the EB Propsim F8 and seeing success on the research level, CWC aims to utilize the EB Propsim F8 radio channel emulator in the undergraduate studies. This enables their students to get to know and utilize high tech test and measurement equipment that is widely used by global wireless players in their R&D processes.
