  1. 1. Product Brief© 2015 Azimuth Systems Inc. All Rights Reserved. Product Brief ACE™ MX MIMO Channel Emulator The Gold Standard for MIMO Testing Emerging wireless technologies deliver data, video, and voice services at high speeds. This high-throughput delivery is made possible by orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) and advanced antenna techniques such as multiple-input/multiple-output (MIMO). MIMO, in turn, depends on clear, reliable operating channels. This necessitates accurate, repeatable lab tools capable of re-creating real-world RF environmental effects—for example, multipath and fading—for critical conformance, performance, and system interoperability testing. This requires channel emulation. The state-of-the-art ACE MX channel emulator, purpose-built to support MIMO transmissions, is designed to meet the demanding RF needs of OFDM-based systems. The ACE MX product line combines powerful channel emulation capabilities in a comprehensive design to deliver a range of configurations for MIMO and/or SISO system testing, with uni- and bidirectional configurations. The Azimuth ACE MX Delivers… • Rapid setup and automation • Unparalleled ease-of-use • Unmatched RF performance and fidelity • Superior scalability and flexibility • Outstanding value ACE™ MX MIMO Channel Emulator • Optimized for latest-generation wireless protocols: 2G/3G/4G LTE • Azimuth’s Multilink Scenario application adds support for carrier aggregation • Advanced channel modeling • New ease-of-use features • Scalable, modular solution • Satisfies needs of multiple departments: research, design, engineering, marketing/sales, and quality assurance • Used by leading manufacturers and vendors of wireless devices, infrastructure, and chipsets, as well as operators, test labs, and universities© 2016 Azimuth Systems Inc.
