The SR5500 Wireless Channel Emulator is the most complete and efficient solution available for accurately testing SISO and 2x2 MIMO wireless receivers. Aside from Spirent’s new VR5 HD (for higher-order MIMO testing) the SR5500 is the only channel emulator with dual fading engines, both a real-time statistical fading/noise generator and a data-playback engine for advanced modeling. The SR5500 and VR5 HD also offer the industry’s only realistic MIMO-device-in-motion (Dynamic Correlation) emulation.
The SR5500 helps isolate performance issues early in the development and design verification cycle, accelerating time to market and minimizing post-deployment issues. One mouse click launches standard models used in LTE, WiMAX, CDMA, EV-DO, HSPA+ and more. The SR5500 lets you imagine an RF channel and turn it into reality in your lab.
MIMO-Over-the-Air (MIMO-OTA) Testing
Spirent proudly employs some of the world’s leading authorities in the field of MIMO-OTA testing. With Spirent’s MIMO-OTA Environment Builder you can use their expertise to manage intricate MIMO-OTA testing via simplified graphical controls.
Virtual Drive Test (VDT)
Spirent’s Virtual Drive Test (VDT) feature reduces the cost and time burdens associated with drive testing. Spirent’s VDT – Conversion Tool software converts raw data from a cellular scanner for use with the SR5500. Proprietary Spirent technology then creates an RF channel that is actually more realistic than the raw scanned data.
Spirent’s experts have been delivering state-of-the-art RF channel emulators since the early 1990’s. Today their dedication to the art of RF is reflected in the SR5500.
