screen-shot-2015-03-22-at-1_31_16-am

This white paper introduces and compares the classical (Jakes) and Wi-Fi (Bell) spectra and provides some much-needed guidance on the Doppler Spectrum to be used for mobile Wi-Fi devices.

Real World Case Studies

We work with the leading operators, infrastructure, chipset, device vendors, and academic and research institutions. This opens up a unique perspective of the entire ecosystem. Here are some interesting case studies that touch on a variety of topics.

A Study of the Impact of Reciprocal Path Loss on LTE Power Control

untitled1

Most of the LTE (lab) testing has been largely focused on downlink performance. While a good starting point, this doesn’t give a complete picture of performance.

This case study takes both the downlink and uplink conditions into consideration to test and provide a complete picture of the performance.
