The main goal of the TopicalWorking Group on MIMO OTAis to gather all the
relevant research across theWorking Groups in the IC1004Action for backingup
choices to be made in standardisation on technologies for OTA testing of
multi-antenna devices.As no standards are conceived in European cooperation
in science and technology (COST) IC1004, discussions are generally held in
an easier atmosphere than in standardisation bodies. Contributions to a broader
understanding of OTAtesting of multi-antenna systems and its implications are
welcomed as much as investigations of particular technologies or concepts.
Such contributions come from industry and academia. Compared to earlier
work in, for instance in COST Action 2100, the focus has shifted from RF
performance (the present OTA standard) to overall device performance as seen
by the user, without regarding any specific hardware/subsystem performance.
This also means not primarily finding out why a certain terminal in a particular
radio environment behaves the way it does, the focus is on how it performs
w.r.t. to exchanging information (data, speech, images). The impetus comes
from, among others, mobile service providers that want to rank UE for their
portfolio. The targeted application of MIMO OTA in standardisation is the
conformance testing cycle, currently targeting RF performance only and not
production testing. In this Chapter, contributions over the project duration are
documented and resumed in a coherent way.
