Testing of smart antenna systems.

Smart antenna systems must be tested to verify the various claims made by the system designer and manufacturer. The tests should be performed primarily to evaluate the most and least successful functions of the system under consideration. Extensive testing should also establish the best and worst propagation environments for system deployments. Most importantly, a comprehensive test of a smart antenna system should generate results that enable the service provider to examine cost vs. benefits based on a full understanding of the system's potentials and limitations. This article focuses on key tests that can be performed on switched-beam systems, which are considered the simplest, but most popular, among smart antenna technologies.
