The challenges of testing antennas for 5G - Real person use-cases

MVG has launched a new downloadable WHITEPAPER exploring the importance of real person use-case testing for the development of antennas in 5G mobile devices.  

Unlike the microwave frequencies used for 3G and 4G, mmWaves require that devices be able to transmit and receive more sensitive signals with shorter wavelengths and higher frequencies.  

The associated attenuation and blocking issues, caused by hand position and user orientation, for example, are challenging mobile device manufacturers. New techniques are necessary to accommodate real person use-case test scenarios into the development stages of 5G devices.  

This new whitepaper explores: 

  • How 5G compatible technology is different 

  • Why there is a disruptive shift towards OTA testing 

  • Why real person use-case/authentic testing is important for 5G devices 

  • Which test methods are most suited for this kind of functional testing of 5G technology   

  • A new technique and solution for real-person use-case testing by MVG
