MVG’s recent report reveals a 44% upturn in order intakes of its highly accurate lab-based, multi-probe antenna test and measurement system, the StarLab. 

Part of its ‘Little Big Lab’ portfolio of compact and portable testing equipment, StarLab is one of the most comprehensively designed products of its kind. Having undergone over 15 years of proactive regeneration, it continues to meet the everchanging antenna testing and measurement requirements across different industries.

Both StarLab and StarLab 50 GHz perform passive antenna and OTA measurements to class-leading standards, their measurement speed has improved with each model upgrade and their typical dynamic range has evolved to fully support Wi-Fi, LTE and upcoming protocols.

Philippe Garreau, CEO of MVG, comments on the rise in lab-based antenna testing technology:

“We are continually evolving our StarLab technology in line with 5G testing challenges which include the usage of higher frequency bands in the absence of physical connectors. It is a compact and portable solution to in-lab OTA testing. With different versions of the product, we are able to offer our customers the right StarLab technology according to the products and antennas they are testing.” 

According to ‘The Mobile Economy China 2019’, the latest report published by the GSMA in March 2019, China will account for the largest number of 5G connections in 2025, greater than North America and Europe combined.



“As a research and development test tool, BBox needs to be calibrated precisely and carefully for both conducted and Over-The-Air (OTA) testing.

“设备安装后,经过一天的培训,StarLab马上成为Parrot Drones无人机开发和无线连接测试的重要工具。拥有StarLab前后的差距很明显, 我们现在可以优先采用天线测量技术,从而优化天线的设计和集成。”

Today, 5G is turning into a commercial reality. This next generation network holds enormous promise.

5G NR expands into higher frequencies and uses new technologies that increase complexity in the way signals are built, transmitted and processed compared to 4G.
