Keithley webinar focuses on MIMO Communications

03 March 2009

A Keithley Instruments webinar titled ‘Demystifying Testing of MIMO Communications Systems’ will provide an overview of the critical requirements for testing MIMO-based technologies and outline test methods that are applicable to 802.11n WLAN, 802.16e Mobile WiMAX Wave 2 and LTE wireless communication standards.

The one hour webinar is free and will be broadcast on March 5. It will be presented by representatives from Keithley Instruments, Inc. and Azimuth Systems.

Multiple-Input, Multiple-Output (MIMO) technology is the foundation of expanding 3G technologies like HSPA+ and Long-Term Evolution (LTE), and the next generation of 4G wireless broadband technologies, including IEEE 802.16m and LTE Advanced. It employs techniques such as spatial multiplexing, adaptive antenna processing, and beam forming to deliver greater throughput and range, which will enable ubiquitous high-speed voice, video, and data services.

This webinar is recommended for wireless test engineers, wireless technology researchers, antenna designers, and wireless engineers and system designers.
