The Rohde & Schwarz TS8980 is an integrated test system family for LTE, WCDMA and GSM conformance testing. It is a family of test solutions for the entire development lifecycle of mobile stations (MS) and has special optional add-ons to meet specific operator needs. This family includes TS8980FTA-2, TS8980S-2 and TS8980PRE test systems.
The TS8980FTA-2 is a fully automated conformance test system configured for running validated RF conformance test cases during the design, precertification and type approval of mobile stations. This test system provides a future-ready design capable of supporting new LTE-Advanced technologies. TS8980S-2 is a fully automated in-band test solution for precompliance and R & D applications. The TS8980PRE is a precompliance tester for both inband and out-of-band tests.
The software platform of the TS8980 can be used for applications ranging from scalable test systems to conformance testing. Its simple operation, flexibility in test applications and speed-optimized automated test sequences enhance the efficiency of testing in all development phases of an MS.
