Keysight: Over the air mmWave measurements


Moray Rumney

Keysight Technologies UK Limited

Moray Rumney joined Hewlett-Packard in 1984, and through the transition to Agilent and now Keysight has worked in manufacturing engineering, product development, applications engineering, and most recently technical marketing. His early focus was the development and system design of base station emulators used in the development and testing of cellular phones. Moray joined ETSI in 1991 and 3GPP in 1999 where he developed type approval tests for GSM, UMTS and LTE. He currently represents Keysight at RAN WG4, developing HSPA+, LTE and now the new radio for 5G. Moray has published many technical articles in the field of cellular communications, and was editor of Agilent’s book “LTE and the Evolution to 4G Wireless”. He is a regular presenter at industry conferences where he speaks on wireless technology issues and their implications on the wider industry. His current focus is on radiated testing and how this will evolve from 4G to 5G.

Pekka Kyösti

Keysight Technologies Finland Oy

Pekka Kyösti has M.Sc. in mathematics from Oulu University, Finland. From 1998 to 2002 he was with Nokia Networks working on the field of transceiver baseband algorithms and signal processing. From 2002 to 2013 he was with Elektrobit, Oulu. Since 2002 he has been working on radio channel measurements, estimation and modelling. He has participated in the channel modelling work in European METIS 2020 project and IST-WINNER projects since 2004. He has contributed to scientific forums like COST actions, and to several telecommunication standards like 3GPP LTE, WiMAX Forum, 802.16 and ITU-R. From 2008 to 2012 he was actively developing methods for MIMO Over-the-Air testing. He was moved to Keysight Technologies Finland Oy along the acquisition in August 2016. Currently he is working on channel modelling for 5G systems with Keysight and with the university of Oulu.

New challenges are facing designers of wireless transceivers and antennas as cellular communications move from existing frequencies predominantly below 3 GHz up to the lower end of the millimeter wave bands around 28 GHz and higher.

Devices consisting of integrated transceivers and antennas require the adoption of new measurement methodologies in order to measure performance in a connectorless environment.

Additionally, antenna arrays used for beam forming and beam steering require additional characterization, as early as possible in the design cycle. In order to cost-effectively test devices including larger devices such as CPE adn base stations, tradeoffs must be made between space, cost, and achieving the desired test environment.

We will explore these new challenges as well as new design and measurement considerations and methodologies used in a millimeter wave, over-the-air environment.

The format for this workshop will be to first establish some of the basics concerning Over The Air (OTA) measurements requried for 5G communications,and a review of the latest 3GPP standards.

The benefits of using simulation and modelling analysis early on in design processes – both commercial and technical aspects will be explored.

This will be followed by a discussion on the test challenges; how can you accurately represent real world performance in an enclosed and isolated environment?

The applicaitons for Compact Antenna test Ranges (CATR) and Multi-Probe Anechoic Chambers (MPAC) for different types of requirement will be discusssed.
