Rohde & Schwarz To Showcase T&M Equipment for 5G, LTE-Advanced and IoT


At the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017Rohde & Schwarz will be displaying their latest test solutions for chipsets, components and devices as well as mobile networks to support the development of mobile technology for current and future standards up to 5G. From Enhanced Mobile Broadband to the Internet of Things, the test & measurement (T&M) specialist enables stable and secure connections for all types of wireless communications.

Rohde & Schwarz and its subsidiary SwissQual, will also be displaying the latest developments in mobile network testing technology for applications such as benchmarking, network optimization, field services and service quality monitoring under the motto "More value out of your network” at their mobile network testing technology.

Device Infrastructure Testing

At its device and infrastructure testing booth, Rohde & Schwarz will display its latest T&M solutions for chipsets, devices and network components for today's LTE/LTE-Advanced and tomorrow's 5G standards with a large part of the booth devoted to IoT too.  They will be presenting the 5G test solutions for the first time in the 28 GHz band.

An R&S SMW200A will generate 5GTF candidate waveforms and an R&S FSW signal analyzer with an internal bandwidth of up to 1.2 GHz will analyze them. The new R&S NRPM OTA power measurement solution allows T&M specialists to precisely measure and calibrate the power of beam-forming antennas and antenna arrays in the far field.

Mobile Network Testing

At the mobile network testing booth, Rohde & Schwarz will showcase realistic measurement scenarios such as a network engineering lab, outdoor drive test, operation center and a base station that is recreated to demonstrate test solutions in their application environments, at the mobile networking testing booth. Of particular interest will be the pioneering 5G network coverage demonstrator solution up to 28 GHz. The technically advanced range of solutions covering IoT and 4x4 MIMO to ViLTE and VoWiFI encompasses benchmarking, network optimization, video quality measurements, installation, maintenance and troubleshooting all designed to deliver more value out of the network.
