Rohde & Schwarz and Albatross Projects Group have globally collaborated for more than 20 years on turnkey solutions and EMC test systems for CISPR, IEC, automotive and military standards.
Rohde & Schwarzhas integrated SwissQual, a leading provider of systems for measuring and assessing the quality of service (QoS) in wireless networks, into its group of companies. Through the acquisition Rohde & Schwarz will be in a position to better and more fully address the drive test market with a complete industry-leading technological offering.
The Rohde & Schwarz R&S FSW-K6 pulse measurement option for the R&S FSW series of high-performance signal and spectrum analyzers is an excellent choice for evaluating the performance of radar systems and all other applications that employ pulsed signals. When coupled with the MultiView capabilities of the R&S FSW series, multiple spectrum analyzer measurements can be run, viewed, and updated on a single screen giving the user a complete overview of system performance.
Rohde & Schwarz has added three new options for its compact R&S DST200 RF diagnostic chamber: the R&S DST-B160 automated 3D positioner, the R&S DST-B210 cross-polarized test antenna and the R&S DST-B270 communications antenna. The new options significantly speed up precompliance testing of wireless devices, allowing automated test sequences to be performed on the lab bench so that developers no longer require constant access to large RF test chambers.
Rohde & Schwarz and 7Layers completed RF and protocol conformance testing on an LTE device developed for the United States 700 MHz (3GPP Frequency Band 14) Public Safety Broadband Network.
Rohde & Schwarz has added new functionality to its R&S SMU200A vector signal generator: Equipped with the R&S SMU-K77 option, the R&S SMU200A simulates dynamic fading scenarios for testing military radiocommunications equipment. This makes it possible to verify the performance of military radios and optimize their hardware to enable smooth operation under harsh receiving conditions such as dynamic fading and multipath signal propagation.
The latest Rohde & Schwarz test solution for LTE is based on the R&S CMW500 wideband radio communication tester with new options and the R&S UPV audio analyzer. The R&S CMW500 emulates an LTE network and the R&S UPV assesses the voice transmission and voice quality of the LTE user equipment according to an objective set of test criteria.
Test and measurement products from HAMEG Instruments are now directly available from Rohde & Schwarz almost anywhere in the world, which has prompted the decision to brand these products with a new logo that contains the names of both companies. This move is intended to further increase the brand awareness and growth of HAMEG Instruments and within the next three months, the dual logo will be introduced in nearly all regions.
China Mobile is using the R&S CMW500 wideband radio communications tester from Rohde & Schwarz in its Research Institute labs to perform RF tests on user equipment for time division LTE (TD-LTE). The intention is for Rohde & Schwarz’s TD-LTE cooperation with the Chinese mobile radio network operator to continue on a long-term basis.
