FLEET, UK -- Anite, a global leader in wireless equipment testing technology, today announced that SGS, a world leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company, has selected Anite’s Propsim channel emulators (Propsim) for its new anechoic MIMO¹ Over-The-Air (OTA) test laboratory in Taiwan. Propsim and its related MIMO OTA Modelling Tool enable SGS to provide accurate and reliable testing services to the global wireless ecosystem in readiness for the upcoming CTIA standardised MIMO OTA performance test plan.

MIMO OTA performance testing is used to assess the end user’s experience accessing data services on a mobile device. OTA testing involves testing a wireless device without any connected cables, thereby incorporating the device antenna performance. By accurately replicating the field conditions of a live network, Propsim creates a realistic RF environment in an anechoic MIMO OTA test system. Propsim is compliant with the draft CTIA specification related to MIMO OTA testing of all currently planned LTE transmission modes in anechoic chamber system installations. Users of Propsim are consequently able to verify that mobile devices meet expected industry requirements.

SGS benefits from Propsim’s superior emulation accuracy and its quicker test execution compared to other solutions available on the market, leading to more reliable test results and accelerated device assessment. Furthermore, Propsim’s unique MIMO OTA channel model validation capability enables SGS and their customers to be highly confident of the integrity of the system’s test results.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
