OULU, FINLAND and UTTENREUTH, GERMANY, Jun 17 (MARKET
EB (Elektrobit), a leading developer of cutting edge embedded technology
solutions for wireless and automotive industries and MEDAV, a leading
provider of radio channel sounders announced their cooperation in
developing interoperability between the MEDAV RUSK MIMO Channel Sounder
and EB Propsim emulators. EB Propsim radio channel emulator customers now
have the ability to use in their wireless testing data measured in the
field with the MEDAV RUSK MIMO Channel Sounder.
“Conformance testing against basic industry standards is no longer enough
in today’s competitive markets. A laboratory environment where real world
radio conditions can be repeated accurately is becoming a must for mobile
device developers and operators. The unique and patented file-based
emulation architecture and playback capability of EB Propsim radio
channel emulators together with data measured by the MEDAV Sounder
provide competitive advantage to our customers”, said Antti Sivula,
senior vice president of EB’s Wireless Communications Tools Business. “We
established this cooperation with MEDAV to provide our customers in a
variety of wireless industry markets better access to state-of-the-art
solutions to ensure they are testing beyond conformance for the most
reliable wireless connection possible.”
Actual field measurements performed with the MEDAV MIMO Channel Sounder
provide the most accurate, real-life-like channel models for repeated
tests in the laboratory. In this process the sounder acts like a recorder
and the radio channel emulator as a projector, which plays back the
recorded radio channel data. This can only be performed with an emulator
that uses file-based emulation, allowing the same test run to be
completed as many times as needed – and exactly in the same way.
“Measured data from different environments is already available in our
library and we also perform radio channel measurement campaigns to
customers as a service”, said Horst Jonuscheit, director sales & business
development in MEDAV. “By bringing together MEDAV’s RUSK MIMO Channel
Sounder data and EB Propsim emulator through a data interface, a big
technical gap could be closed for customers worldwide. Users of these
systems can now take advantage of the results attainable from the
combined expertise of EB and MEDAV.”
