Beceem, a Mobile WiMAX terminal chipset developer, and Rohde & Schwarz, a test and measurement equipment provider, have teamed up to enable WiMAX RF performance test solutions for the WiMAX ecosystem. The Rohde & Schwarz' Radio Conformance, R&D and Production Test solutions have been optimised for Mobile WiMAX by testing with Beceem's BCS200 baseband and radio chipset.

"The BCS200 is our third generation Mobile WiMAX chipset and incorporates over 2 years of field optimisation," said Lars Johnsson, VP Business Development, Beceem. "Pairing our performance leading terminal chipset with Rohde & Schwarz' Radio Conformance Test system and recently launched production test solution brings a complete end-to-end Mobile WiMAX terminal development and test platform to the WiMAX ecosystem that combines the performance of our terminal chipset with Rohde & Schwarz' experience in radio communication testing."

"Beceem's Mobile WiMAX chips are the terminal solution of choice for many leading WiMAX equipment vendors. These vendors now have access to a choice of radio test solutions from Rohde & Schwarz, tested with Beceem chips for use with other terninals." said Dietmar Vahldiek, head of Product Management, Systems and Projects, Rohde & Schwarz ."Our teamwork spans from in-house RCT test capabilities and pre-validation support on the R&S TS8970 to optimised production solutions based on the brand new R&S CMW270 WiMAX Communication Tester."

The R&S TS8970 is currently undergoing validation testing at the WiMAX Forum validation testing facility, while the R&S CMW270 is the first dedicated production tester providing an optional base station emulation capability, replacing the need for real base stations in the final functional testing.
