Title: Interference Tests for 900 MHz Frequency-Hopping Public-Safety Wireless Devices
Published: August 15, 2011
Abstract: We discuss free-field measurement methods designed to quantify interference between wireless devices such as RF identification systems and RF-based emergency beacons used by fire fighters. For public safety applications, standardized testing is important so that responder organizations purchase devices that are appropriate for their specific needs. As well, appropriate test methods must be developed because reliability can be life critical.
