Rohde & Schwarz presents its signaling test solutions for 5G NR in FR1 and FR2
For most mobile network operators, fifth generation of mobile communications will initially be an additional data service for transmission rates up to 20 Gbit/s. To allow developers to test their mobile devices in 5G NR non-standalone and standalone mode in line with 3GPP specifications, the test solution must accurately simulate both LTE and 5G NR networks. As a key solution, Rohde & Schwarz has developed the R&S CMX500 radio communication tester. It adds 5G capability to the company’s tried and tested LTE solutions such as the R&S CMW500 or R&S CMWflexx test system, allowing to perform testing from 2G to 5G on one platform. The extension box R&S CMX500 is capable of handling various FR1 and FR2, signaling and non-signaling as well as standalone and non-standalone test scenarios, from R&D to certification testing.
A key functionality of the R&S CMX500 is signaling tests in FR2. In addition, the R&S CMX500 also supports signaling tests in FR1. The tests performed in non-standalone (NSA) mode feature both LTE and 5G connections. They verify LTE/5G signaling protocol behavior, OTA RF/TX measurements, end-to-end data testing with LTE & 5G bearers as well as mmWave OTA signaling and RF measurements.
