5G Massive MIMO Testbed
Wireless technology is rapidly evolving, and wireless design and test require a flexible and more cost-effective approach that can manage fast data rates, seamless, real-time interaction between humans and billions of intelligent devices, new bands, wider bandwidth and new beamforming technology. All of this, poses significant design, prototype, and test challenges.
This solution addresses the needs of your software defined radio and telecom applications with real-world signals such as multiple input, multiple output (MIMO) and LTE/WiFi testbed to achieve a fully streaming, real-time, phase-coherent and time-synchronized, multichannel system out of the box.
