802.11ac Is Coming: How Will We Test It?

April 19, 2012

The Emerging Wireless SIG Presents…



802.11ac Is Coming: How Will We Test It? from CommNexus on Vimeo.

The recent introduction of IEEE802.11ac standard poses a new testing challenge. The IEEE802.11ac will consume very high data rates in a 5.2 GHz frequency area while using a wide bandwidth (up to 160 MHz) and advanced MIMO technologies. On top of these, the IEEE802.11ac will require very high order modulation, like 256QAM. Considering these technological challenges, we already know that the conventional ways of testing may not work at all, due the fact that the test and measurement devices must always over perform the device under test. In this presentation we discuss realistic throughput values obtained in the field and compare them to the theoretical values to  offer insight as to how well wireless devices in general are performing in the field. We also screen the requirements, specifically against IEEE802.11ac standard, of test and measurement equipment to identify the essential features. Finally, we shall list several public product announcements on IEEE802.11ac to illustrate how the industry is already working on 5G.

KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Jukka-Pekka (JP) Nuutinen Senior Staff Engineer, Elektrobit Inc.

Jukka-Pekka Nuutinen started his career in 1990 at Tampere University of technology as a research assistant where he completed his Master’s degree and post graduate studies. His research was focused on electromagnetic waves and how to solve them numerically.In 1996 he joined Nokia as senior research engineer, focusing on EMC standardization and interference controlling in WCDMA (3G) systems. In 2003 he joined EB (Elektrobit), where he has had several positions as senior researcher as well as managing the research programs. Mr. Nuutinen is one of the key contributors to the MIMO OTA project at EB (Elektrobit). He has authored and co-authored several TD’s for COST2100 and he has authored and co-authored several scientific papers (most of them on the review). He has also submitted several patent applications (pending) on the MIMO OTA test system. Overall, Mr. Nuutinen has several patents in the area of interference cancellation, radio channel and test systems. He has also published several papers on the above mentioned areas. He has been active in research collaboration with Universities and as part of that he has been reviewing several papers for IEEE.
