Aeroflex Adds 4×2 MIMO Support to 7100 Digital Radio Test Set

Aeroflex Ltd. announced added support for the 4×2 multi-input multi-output (MIMO) to the 7100 digital radio test set for the R&D testing of LTE user equipment being designed with this feature.

4×2 MIMO is used adaptively to offer improved throughput in good signal conditions and improved resilience in poor signal conditions.

Option 7100-111 is a software license that enables 4×2 MIMO functionality and can be enabled in the field. The new release supports 4×2 MIMO measurements on LTE in FDD mode with bandwidths of 10, 15 and 20 MHz, with more bandwidths to be added at a later date.
