Meeting the Testing Challenges of a Fully Connected World! - MVG to highlight 5G and IoT test solutions at EDI CON 2018


Once again, MVG as the Silver Sponsor, will be back to EDI CON China, taking place on March 20-22, 2018 at the China National Convention Center in Beijing. This year, MVG will continue to  demonstrate its technical leadership by providing a series of technical activities dedicated to 5G and IoT testing. MVG will also highlight its expertise and achievement through an onsite Virtual Reality experience event during the tradeshow.

MVG IoT Testing Workshop: " Mastering IoT testing challenges: protocol choices and OTA test solutions to successfully implement wireless connectivity in IoT devices 

Tuesday, March 20, 14:15-14:55, Room: 406
Presenter: Mathieu Mercier

From a wireless connectivity technology perspective, the requirements are different compared to traditional smartphone based connectivity solutions. There are new protocols specifically optimized for IoT, such as NB-IoT, LoRa, Sigfox, LTE-M, as well as 5G. For IoT devices, it is often critical to ensure that the wireless connectivity performs as expected, where the antenna performance is a major contributor that needs to be optimized and controlled. In this workshop, MVG will explain protocol choices for IoT, and introduce how to efficiently test IoT devices with the right tools and test methods. Test solutions for different IoT protocols and product categories as well as product lifecycle phases will be covered. A detailed overview on MiniLab I 6 GHz OTA will be given as well.

5G panel discussion and presentation: 5G mmWave OTA Testing ​

Thurs, March 22, 11:55-12:40, Room: 402A/B
Presenter: Mathieu Mercier

The 5G mmWave OTA Testing workshop and panel will address how the industry must solve this big challenge quickly.  With 5G applications being deployed this year in the 28 GHz and above frequency range with bandwidths up to 1 GHz and using massive MIMO arrays, how will the industry measure the 3D narrow beam propagation environment? Leading measurement and test chamber experts will present data on possible methods and test setups discussing and debating the merits of each.  MVG will give a brief overview of the advanced millimetre-wave testing options using both NF and FF techniques and comment on possible ways forward for further advances in OTA testing of such devices.   

MVG Ultimate Virtual Reality Experience

MVG booth N°436

MVG will set up the "VR Experience Zone" within its very designed booth (n° 436). While wearing the VR head-mounted device, visitors immerse immediately in a virtual visit of the 3120 cube meter field of compact antenna test range made for PitRadwar - the perfect combination of an EMC Chamber, a state-of-the-art reflector and advanced positioning and scan technology. 

We look forward to connecting with you at EDI CON!
