Abstract

Meeting the promises of increased capacity in 5G mobile communication requires rolling out massive MIMO base stations along with network and mobile terminals implementing both sub 6 GHz and milli meter-wave technologies. The supported capabilities of dynamic beam forming and the absence of RF test ports on devices is creating a shift of performance evaluation towards system-level characterization. This shift is putting over-the-air measurement at a central position on the road to 5G deployment. This article discusses the promises of OTA testing solutions employing software and hardware near-field transformations to take on the challenges of OTA assessment for 5G user equipment and base stations at minimum cost.
