Latest news from us and the industry

Don't miss anything!

We work for a safer connected society and one part of this is to share knowledge and educate about topics connected to OTA measuring, testing and wireless performance. Here you will be able to find valuable content, latest news and research from both RanLOS and the industry. 

RanLOS - Ericsson Mobility Report

The global mobile network data traffic is almost doubling every two years and has since Q3 2021 increased by around 38% in Q1 2022. By the end of 2022, 5G subscriptions are expected to reach 1 billion, and more smart 5G devices with additional capabilities are expected in the market during 2023...

Redeye Event: Autotech

Due to the rapidly increasing technology content in cars, Redeye invited a number of companies that are exposed to the industry in various ways during the Red Eye Autotech Event. This event had speakers from companies like: Polestar, Gapwaves, Smart Eye, Terranet and Acconeer.

RanLOS mission is to provide cost efficient, accurate and repeatable test technologies and systems for characterizing wireless devices.
SIVERT – The result

The Vinnova (Sweden’s public innovation agency) funded project SImulation and VErification of wiReless Technologies (SIVERT), with the project participants Volvo Cars, Lund University, Volvo Group, RanLOS and RISE, is now finished. The project was a part of the venture Electronic, software and communication – FFI.

Commonly used words...

The measurement system consists of a cylindrical reflector with a linear feed array. The feed array consists of dual-polarized bowtie antennas. The feed array illuminates the reflector which will create a plane wave in the test zone. This means that we have far-field properties in the test zone, which means that we can perform measurements in far-field conditions, even though we are at a short distance from the reflector.

By connecting an instrument, either a network analyzer or communication tester, you can perform either passive or active measurements. The device under test is placed on a turntable in front of the reflector antenna. The instrument and turntable are both easily controlled through the RanLOS software.

Yes, you can measure radiation pattern. You can measure 2D radiation pattern of large devices, such as cars. We are currently developing a tilt system for being used together with the Sub-6 GHz system, this will make it possible to measure semi-3D radiation patterns.

With the mmWave system you will be able to measure a full 3D radiation pattern.

With RanLOS solution you can currently measure antennas in the frequency range 0.7 GHz to 6 GHz as well as 27-29 GHz.

With RanLOS solution you can currently measure antennas in the frequency range 0.7 GHz to 6 GHz as well as 27-29 GHz.

Our system is preferably used in an anechoic or semi-anechoic chamber. This will give a controlled environment with no interferences. However, the system can also be used in simpler setups, such as an outdoor tent.

We do not have a solution for 55 GHz and 77 GHz yet. However, we are looking into this. Feel free to contact us to talk and discuss other frequencies than the ones we currently provide (0.7 – 6 GHz and 27-29 GHz).

Yes, we can measure up to 2×2 MIMO data throughput.

No, but we have partners that can provide the chambers. Contact us for more details.


No, not at the moment. However, our software supports a range of different positions and we can make our software work with already existing turntables and positioners in your current chambers.

Our software supports a range of different instruments and positioners, see the product brochure – read more and download pdf here. The software is module-based, such that it also is easy to add drivers for other instruments and positioners if needed.

The Sub-6 GHz system is 2.1 m x 3.3 m x 4.3 m.

The mmWave-system is 0.4 m x 0.6 m x 0.8 m.

With RanLOS solution you can do both passive and active measurements. Passive measurements such as radiation pattern and gain measurements of antennas. Active measurements such as data throughput up to 2×2 MIMO.

Yes, we provide calibration antennas.

We aim to create a safer connected society. To do so we need easy to use and flexible solutions for testing wireless performance over-the-air (OTA). It includes all relevant standards today and tomorrow; such as 3G, 4G, 5G and WiFi. Work with us and make your measuring easier, faster and smarter.
