Key Trends in the Test and Measurement Vertical: Radio Frequency and Wireless Testing Equipment

Key Trends in the Test and Measurement Vertical: Radio Frequency and Wireless Testing Equipment

The uptake of modular test equipment has been significantly growing due to its flexibility, cost-effectiveness, and high operating speed.

The 802.11ac standard introduced many new technologies such as multi-user MIMO (multiple input multiple output), 8X8, and beamforming, which require new test equipment.

Currently, 􂀀G and 􂀀G account for the majority of mobile data traffic, at about 􂀀%. However, 􂀀G penetration will grow to represent more than two-thirds of all mobile data traffic by 2019. This increases the demand for effective wireless test and measurement (T&M) solutions.

Technology giants such as Samsung exclusively focus on developing their future products in line with the Internet of Things (IoT). Samsung has announced that 􂀀% of its products will be connected with the IoT by 2017, and by 2020, all its products will fall into this category. Radio frequency (RF) and wireless test equipment play a key role in a product’s lifecycle, right from the designing, prototyping, manufacturing, and assembling to product quality validation.

The fifth generation of wireless networks will demand the use of higher frequency bands, most likely in the range of 􂀀-􂀀 GHz. This will drive the demand for RF and wireless test equipment.
