Rohde & Schwarz presents the new R&S CMX500 one-box tester, a powerful 5G test platform for simplified device testing
Rohde & Schwarz is bringing its well-established R&S CMX500 5G radio communication tester with a major upgrade to MWC Barcelona 2022. The new R&S CMX500 one-box tester provides extensive device testing capability, including support for all 5G NR deployments covering LTE, 5G NR FR1 and FR2 in non-standalone (NSA) and standalone (SA) mode, for both FDD and TDD with an effortless setup and an outstanding performance. Manufacturers of cutting-edge 5G NR capable chipsets and devices as well as certification providers can cover the entire product lifecycle with the R&S CMX500 one-box tester, from all early R&D design phases to end-to-end application testing, including device certification.
To realize the one-box tester approach, Rohde & Schwarz has integrated new sub 8 GHz RF units for FR1 into the R&S CMX500. In combination with the new remote radio heads (RRH), which now cover mmWave frequencies up to 50 GHz in FR2, the R&S CMX500 one-box tester reaches its market-leading performance. Consequently, even challenging 5G NR band combinations can now be simulated with a single R&S CMX500. For example, higher order carrier aggregation with up to 8CC combinations of FR1 and FR2 in downlink is possible, which can achieve data rates of 10 Gbps and beyond on the IP layer.
