Keysight Technologies, Inc. has introduced a new performance test solution that enables mobile operators to automatically benchmark and evaluate performance of 5G new radio (NR) devices and base stations in a laboratory environment.
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.
Mobile Experts released its annual forecast on Semiconductors for RRH. The 2016 release shows that weak demand for LTE base stations has impacted the RF semiconductor market, but losses are partially offset by wider bandwidth and MIMO requirements, which drive higher prices.
Analog Devices Inc. introduced a phased-locked loop (PLL) synthesizer with integrated voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO) that allows mobile network operators to improve cellular base station performance and the quality of wireless service. The new ADF4355 PLL with VCO synthesizer operates up to 6.8 GHz, a frequency band that allows significant margin to industry's current carrier frequencies.
Anite, a global leader in wireless equipment testing technology, announced that it has introduced support for Coordinated Multipoint (“CoMP”) in its interoperability, performance and conformance device test solutions SAS and Conformance Toolset.
Airbus Defence and Space has introduced an 800 MHz version of its high-power mini Tetra base station, the TB3hp, expanding the company’s portfolio in the 800 MHz RF band, which is used particularly in Asia and America.
