Huawei, a leading global ICT solutions provider, has chosen a test solution from Rohde & Schwarz based on the R&S SMW200A vector signal generator and the R&S FSW signal and spectrum analyzer to perform NB-IoT base station tests in line with Release 13 Cat-NB1. The Huawei eRAN 12.0 wireless version is tested using the Rohde & Schwarz solution in compliance with 3GPP TS 36.141.
Rohde & Schwarz has successfully demonstrated the generation and analysis of 5G signals based on the characteristics as specified in the Verizon open trial specifications. The R&S SMW200A vector signal generator and the R&S FSW signal and spectrum analyzer both provide outstanding test and measurement capabilities, resulting in an EVM performance of 1 percent when applying these 5G signals.
The R&S Scope Rider from Rohde & Schwarz is equally impressive in the lab and in the field. With an acquisition rate of 50,000 waveforms per second, a 10‑bit A/D converter developed by Rohde & Schwarz and a maximum bandwidth of 500MHz for the analog input channels, this portable oscilloscope clearly outperforms comparable instruments.
The new phase noise analyzer and VCO tester from Rohde & Schwarz enables ultrasensitive and ultra-fast phase noise measurements. The R&S FSWP also allows users to very easily measure pulsed sources and residual phase noise of RF components. Plus the instrument can be upgraded to a signal and spectrum analyzer.
Rohde & Schwarz (R&S) announced that Moog has selected the R&S EDS300 DME/pulse analyzer as a standard test solution for R&D, manufacturing and field deployment of their MM-7000 series navigation aids. The Moog MM-7000 is a technologically advanced full service TACAN and DME Beacon-Transponder that is being widely sold into the civil and military aircraft navigation market.
In a joint effort, Rohde & Schwarz and Qualcomm Technologies Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Qualcomm Inc., have extensively tested the user plane throughput of the new Qualcomm® Gobi™ 9x35 chipset in compliance with 3GPP Release 10 for LTE-Advanced. In the setup on display at Mobile World Congress, the R&S CMW500 wideband radio communication tester from Rohde & Schwarz simulates the LTE-Advanced network.
The new R&S RTE from Rohde & Schwarz is available with bandwidths from 200 MHz to 1 GHz. An acquisition rate of more than one million waveforms per second helps users find signal faults quickly. The scope's highly accurate digital trigger system with virtually no trigger jitter delivers highly precise results. The single-core A/D converter with more than seven effective bits (ENOB) almost completely eliminates signal distortion.
The R&S TS8980FTA-2 and R&S CMW500 platforms from Rohde & Schwarz will expand the overall test capabilities of PCTEST Lab, boost its ability to offer the complete range of wireless test services needed for global certification, and make certification testing more efficient for customers.
SK Telecom and Rohde & Schwarz plan to build a test bed for active antenna systems (AAS), a smart antenna system developed as part of SK Telecom’s strategy to promote a concept known as SUPER Cell. The aim is to create a stable mobile environment that allows customers to experience faster speeds by enhancing traffic management efficiency through smart antenna systems.
