Rohde & Schwarz to demo 5G test solutions at CTIA 2015

Rohde and Schwarz - CTIA

Mobile wireless test vendor Rohde & Schwarz will demo several test systems for developing and testing 5G components and systems at CTIA Super Mobility 2015.

The global telecom industry is anticipating that the 5G communications will ensure higher peak data rates of 10Gbps, more IoT device connectivity, 10,000x network capacity, reduced latency (< 1ms) and improved energy efficiency, said mobile wireless test supplier in a statement.

“This will require flexible test solutions that can align with a range of 5G needs. 5G test solutions available now will help propel forward research and development in a multitude of 5G related technologies and topics,” said Andreas Roessler, technology manager for Rohde &Schwarz North America.

Rohde & Schwarz will be showcasing 5G test solutions including ultra-wideband signal analysis for 5G component and device development using the R&S FSW Signal and Spectrum Analyzer and R&S RTO Digital Oscilloscope.

When used together, the R&S SMW Vector Signal Generator and the R&S FSW Signal and Spectrum Analyzer enable researchers to design and evaluate the many different candidates for 5G waveforms.

For millimeter wave component test, the R&S ZVA Vector Network Analyzer covers the frequency ranges required for 5G. R&S CMW-PQA test system is used for testing Massive Machine Type Communications, which is a key development area in 5G.
