Radiated Performance Assessment of Wireless Communications Devices - An Operator's Perspective
Wireless telecommunications have come a long way from the days of voice-only handsets. Today's universe of wireless devices spans a diverse range of products; from handsets, smartphones, notebooks and tablet computers to medical monitoring devices and remote telemetry equipment. Looking forward, the applications for wireless technology seem almost unlimited. Since the wireless airlink is essential to the operation of these devices, it's extremely important that their radiated performance meet certain minimum requirements in order to ensure a satisfactory customer experience while maintaining network capacity. However, because of the diversity of these devices, the assessment of radiated performance is not always straightforward and may require special considerations and techniques. This presentation addresses the radiated performance aspects of today's wireless devices from a mobile network operator's perspective. It focuses on the unique challenges associated with establishing radiated performance test requirements that allow for product design flexibility while ensuring that devices will meet customer expectations and maintain high network capacity.
