The development and initial discussion of a reference MIMO 2×2 antenna concept has been presented in . The reference antenna concept has been created to eliminate the uncertainties linked to the unknown antenna performance of the few LTE MIMO 2×2 reference devices or golden standards currently available for evaluating radiated data throughput measurement methodologies and test facilities. The proposed concept is based on simple antennas with a well-known Figure of Merit (FoM) and controllable performance. In this paper we present the recent developments on the antenna concept and report on the first measured performance at uniform incoming power distribution, figures and correlations between different measurement labs.
