5 GHz Band WLAN Device DFS Tests

5 GHz Band WLAN Device  DFS Tests  Support for FCC, ETSI, Japan MIC standards

The recent popularity of smartphones, tablets, etc., has caused an exponential increase in WLAN traffic, resulting in demand for faster communications speeds to help reduce traffic congestion. Consequently, not only is use of frequency bands conventionally reserved for indoor traffic being investigated for outdoor traffic in the 5 GHz WLAN space, but also new 5 GHz band WLAN devices are being actively developed, promoting adoption of newer standards facilitating faster communications speeds. Since 5 GHz band WLAN devices can detect meteorological and marine radar, etc., systems using the 5.3 GHz/5.6 GHz bands, they require a built-in Dynamic Frequency Selection (DFS) function for suppressing signal collisions. Installing the MX370073B and MX370075A in the Vector Signal Generator MG3710A supports FCC, ETSI and Japan MIC (TELEC) standards-compliant test signals required by the DFS function test for WLAN devices to facilitate efficient development of 5 GHz band WLAN devices.

Features

  • Full support for all required test patterns
    About 400 test patterns must be supported just for ETSI.
    The MX370073B/MX370075A have all the waveform patterns required by the test, helping reduce the preparation burden.
  • Easy operation by just selecting and loading waveform patterns
    Even inexperienced operators with little knowledge of the DFS test and equipment can run accurate tests efficiently.
  • Supports FCC, ETSI, Japan MIC (TELEC) standards
    All key DFS test standards are covered.
    In addition, 5.3 GHz-band solid-state radar waveform patterns∗ under consideration for addition to the Japan MIC standard are offered.
