Anritsu and IMST demonstrate Testing Capabilities for LoRa Devices
at Mobile World Congress 2017
– Anritsu MT8870A and IMST iM880B Work Together to Offer a One-Box Test Solution
for LoRa Measurement –
Luton, UK – February 21 2017 – Anritsu Corporation, a member of the LoRa Alliance, will be demonstrating its testing capabilities for LoRa devices for R&D and Manufacturing at Mobile World Congress on the 27th February – 2nd March (Hall 6 Stand 6F40). In a joint collaboration with IMST, Anritsu will be demonstrating its preliminary version of a LoRa test measurement suite including RF transmitter and receiver tests of LoRa devices for production lines. The demonstration of the first one-box test solution for LoRa measurements will be done using the Anritsu MT8870A Universal Wireless Test Set and the IMST LoRa module iM880B-L, a LoRa Alliance certified product.
LoRa is a Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) wireless technology intended for many IoT applications, such as smart metering, remote control and home automation. With the next additions to the LoRaWAN specification, comprehensive RF and protocol testing has become mandatory for device vendors, to ensure device coexistence and guarantee RF performance, in a rapidly growing ecosystem.
The Anritsu MT8870A Universal Wireless Test Set and the Anritsu MS2830A Vector Signal Analyser / Vector Signal Generator support the key RF transmitter and receiver measurements to guarantee device quality. The MS2830A provides a one-box test solution for R&D and compliance or regulatory tests, whereas the MT8870A is the perfect fit for production where speed, reliability and cost are important.
The ultra-long range radio iM880B-L module, based on Semtech’s patented LoRa™ technology, is robust against interference, while the minimized power consumption of the module is the ideal solution for applications requiring long range, secure radio links within the 868 MHz frequency band. The iM880B-L can achieve a sensitivity of more than -137 dBm, which combined with the integrated +20 dBm power amplifier, makes it optimal for any application requiring range or robustness.
