Over the Air Measurement for Wireless Communication Systems is a complete and cutting-edge guide to the performance evaluation of wireless systems, such as 5th Generation wireless communications (5G) and beyond, Internet of Things (IoT), Intelligent Connected Vehicle (ICV), wireless sensors, and smart world wireless terminals. The book covers critical specifications for wireless communication systems, including Total Radiated Power (TRP) and Total Isotropic Sensitivity (TIS).


Readers are provided with the most recent advancements in applications like massive Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) and Intelligent Connected Vehicle Over the Air Measurements (OTA), as well as in-depth knowledge of the OTA systems and OTA test and measurement algorithms. The book offers a profound understanding of OTA systems alongside comprehensive OTA test and measurement algorithms. It navigates through the methodologies adhering to standards set by systems such as the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP), Cellular Telecommunication and Internet Association (CTIA), Single-Input Single-Output (SISO), and MIMO OTA measurements.


With its expansive coverage and detailed insights, the book is an invaluable guide to wireless communication systems. This is a great source for a wide range of professionals, including wireless system managers, antenna and RF engineers, certification and measurement experts, consultants, researchers, and advanced students. Its relevance extends to certification specialists, test engineers, and project managers involved in the meticulous selection of appropriate OTA systems.
