Today’s Wireless Systems Demand the Latest Test & Measurement Solutions

Feb. 8, 2024
There’s no precision without feedback, and increased integration and complexity in wireless systems demand the latest T&M tools.

Advanced electronic devices, products, and services have transformed society at every level, from the individual to the nation-state, from business to pleasure, and from handhelds to smart-city infrastructures. These next-generation solutions are powerful and functional, but most of that advanced toolset comes from wireless connectivity. The ability to communicate with other intelligent devices around you forms the foundation of the IoT. 

Growing use of wireless cloud-based systems and services has also ramped up the number of interconnected intelligent systems and their related wireless infrastructures. For every wireless entity in the cloud, there’s a corresponding amount of wiring behind the wall’s wainscotting, as it were. Every base station, modem, and endpoint is a hybrid system, with both wired and wireless aspects that must continuously work in harmony to be functional. 

It's critical to ensure that these solutions are not only operating in an optimum manner, but they’re doing so in a way that doesn’t interfere with the other wireless systems in the field. Thus, they must all be thoroughly evaluated for performance and compliance with the latest advanced test and measurement systems to address regulatory and industry requirements.  

The need for faster systems that can capture large amounts of data quickly and accurately is critical, and the latest test solutions are rising to the task. This March, Microwaves & RF will explore the present and future of test and measurement, with a full week of feature articles and other content from around the industry about this important topic.
