What is Vertex?
The Vertex channel emulator is an advanced test and measurement solution that simulates the effects of signal interference (also known as fading) on wireless transmissions and replicates the noise and spatial conditions of complex wireless channels. Its cutting-edge capabilities enable users to emulate a real-world RF environment in the lab, making it possible to isolate and identify performance issues early in the development cycle.
Vertex channel emulation plays a key role in testing O-RAN. The solution emulates RF signals under fast fading, frequency drifting due to fast motion (e.g., high speed train), multipath, or different correlation between antennas or antenna elements. This ensures testing under real-world conditions for any environment.
