Rohde & Schwarz has partnered with China Mobile Research Institute to research and validate Joint Communication and Sensing (JCAS) testing solution. This joint collaboration is aimed to accelerate the research and development of JCAS and readying it for industrialization.
Both companies have recently developed a JCAS testing solution in which they used the latest R&S®AREG800A as an object simulator. This solution can simulate a target object’s distance, angle, velocity and other parameters to verify the ability of a system under test to precisely locate a target object. The solution enables reliable and repeatable testing in the lab, accelerating the research and development of JCAS and preparing it for industrialization.
Currently, most industrial technologies used to validate and test sensing capabilities are based on real objects with limited test scenarios in inflexible settings. The R&S AREG800A is the latest dynamic artificial object simulator from Rohde & Schwarz and can generate multiple dynamic targets with varying distances, sizes, radial velocities and angular directions. The R&S AREG800A can simulate several target objects by increasing the number of frontends. Various frequency converter modules allow the R&S AREG800A to perform JCAS testing in specific frequency bands.
Dr. Liu Guangyi, Chief Expert at the China Mobile Communications Corporation, says, “The mission of 6G is to expand mobile network capabilities and boundaries to enable the vision of digital twins and ubiquitous intelligence, which requires continuous collaboration and innovation from the industry. We are glad that the 6G team at the China Mobile Research Institute and Rohde & Schwarz can collaborate on JCAS and we look forward to deepening this collaboration to find a consensus on scenarios, requirements and key technologies while developing a solid foundation for future standardization and industrialization.”
Hailiang Jin, Senior Director Product and System at Rohde & Schwarz, says: “We are glad to see the industry-leading 6G JCAS results from the collaboration between Rohde & Schwarz and the China Mobile Research Institute. We hope that further collaboration will allow both parties to make more breakthroughs here and fully validate the capability of 6G networks to sense the physical world. We also hope that both parties will be able to collaborate on other key 6G technologies and open up a new era of 6G.”
