ETS Lindgren Integrates R&S Tester to Provide 5G NR Testing in Wireless OTA Chambers

Leading test and measurement solutions manufacturer, ETS-Lindgren, has integrated the R&S CMX500 radio communication tester from Rohde & Schwarz (R&S), with its CTIA-compliant EMQuest Antenna Measurement software, to provide comprehensive 5G OTA test capabilities. This includes solutions for all 5G New Radio (NR) modes including FR1 (sub-6 GHz), non-standalone (NSA) and standalone (SA), for both Frequency Division Duplex (FDD) and Time Division Duplex (TDD).

Rohde & Schwarz’s R&S CMX500 works with the R&S CMW500 wideband radio communication tester for cellular (LTE, C-IoT, 3G, 2G) and connectivity (WLAN, Bluetooth) testing to provide complete coverage of all major commercial wireless technologies. This integration is ideal for ETS-Lindgren's customer requirements for current and future turnkey 5G test solutions.

5G-NR, according to Jari Vikstedt, Director Wireless Solutions with ETS-Lindgren, is one of many radio access technologies that needs to be tested on the next generation of wireless devices. And after extensive testing in its wireless labs, ETS believes that the R&S CMX500 can provide customers with a cost-effective way to enable 5G testing. For customers with existing ETS-Lindgren Wireless OTA chambers, it's a convenient upgrade to expand their test capabilities to support 5G NR testing.

ETS-Lindgren is known for installing the world's first CTIA Authorized Test Lab. The company’s active contributions to the CTIA and other industry standards organizations has resulted in many "industry first" efforts that advance the technology for wireless device test and measurement. Customers rely on ETS-Lindgren's ongoing standards involvement to ensure they are prepared to not only meet today's standards, but tomorrow's as well. The company’s latest technical advancements include dozens of customized 5G NR test systems to meet specific user requirements.
