Kyrio expands mobile OTA capabilities with acquisition of Rohde & Schwarz testing device

Kyrio, a subsidiary of CableLabs, Inc., has purchased the R&S TS8991 OTA performance test system to test wireless devices for its expanding customer base, the company said.

The R&S TS8991 test system measures transmit power and receiver sensitivity performance metrics such as EIRP, TRP, EIS, TRS/TIS, co-existence, and intermediate channel sensitivities as specified by CTIA.

The company said over-the-air (OTA) testing is becoming important as standards organizations and network providers look for more accurate methods to predict real-world performance of a mobile wireless device.

Kyrio Inc. provides network testing capabilities and engineering expertise to network service providers and equipment manufacturers. By ensuring the best network technologies are deployed to meet the demands of Wi-Fi and broadband network providers, the company increases bottom line results and accelerates new products and services to market.
