Anritsu launches 2x2 MIMO measurement function for test set

Anritsu Corporation has launched a new 2x2 MIMO Measurement Software MX886200A-010 option for its MT8862A Wireless Connectivity test set, allowing it offer support for evaluating 2x2 MIMO WLAN equipment.

The test set measures IEEE802.11ac/n/g/b/a WLAN equipment, using its built-in network mode, to cover all measurements of radio-wave coverage range, output signal quality, modulation accuracy and 2x2 MIMO of IEEE802.11ac WLAN equipment under actual operation conditions. Installing the MX886200A-010 option provides support for receiver sensitivity and transmit power measurements of 2x2 MIMO WLAN equipment using two MT8862A units in combination, helping end users to assure quality communications and troubleshoot the cause of any errors.
