Rohde & Schwarz presents new test solutions for 5G base stations23-03-2020
As a leading manufacturer of wireless test solutions, Rohde & Schwarz announced that it has extended its portfolio for generation and analysis of 5G signal waveforms. For 5G base stations, RF test solutions for the 5G frequency ranges FR1 (450 MHz to 7.125 GHz) and FR2 up to 44 GHz will be demonstrated. For over-the-air (OTA) tests on 5G base stations in the FR2 range, Rohde & Schwarz is launching a unique solution based on the R&S FE44 frontend modules, which support signal generation and analysis in the lower-frequency IF band. This enables low-loss transmission of 5G signals and the use of cost-effective T&M instruments by avoiding the need for equipment designed for the millimeterwave range. For speed-optimized production tests of 5G base stations, Rohde & Schwarz has developed a scalable, high-performance server based testing analysis platform. The R&S SMBV100B vector signal generator and the R&S FSVA3000 spectrum analyzer are used as RF test solutions. The powerful R&S QuickStep test executive software is used to automatically control the test setup and verify test results. The solution is using a 10 Gigabit Ethernet network, where the combination of the server based approach and parallel processing enables extremely high measurement speeds.
Rohde & Schwarz now also offers a new test solution for base stations and small cells that enables cross-channel measurements up to 4x4 MIMO on 5G transmissions in the FR1 range.
