At its device and infrastructure testing booth, Rohde & Schwarz will display its latest T&M solutions for chipsets, devices and network components for LTE/LTE-Advanced and 5G standards. Rohde & Schwarz will devote a large part of the booth to IoT. Visitors will also be able to view test solutions for radiocommunications in automobiles and for secure IP communications.

Rohde & Schwarz said it’s presenting 5G test solutions in the 28 GHz spectrum band. R&S SMW200A will generate 5GTF candidate waveforms and R&S FSW signal analyzer with an internal bandwidth of up to 1.2 GHz will analyze them. The new R&S NRPM OTA power measurement solution allows T&M specialists to measure and calibrate the power of beamforming antennas and antenna arrays in the far field.

Rohde & Schwarz said the R&S CMW500 supports 5CC 4×4 MIMO transmissions with a data rate of up to 2 Gbit/s in the field of RF tests on LTE-Advanced components.

Rohde & Schwarz’s testing solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT) will feature narrowband IoT application tests in line with the latest 3GPP Release 13 specifications.

Rohde & Schwarz will present other solutions for measuring the battery lifetime of IoT components and embedded designs under realistic network conditions and for the new Bluetooth 5 standard.

Rohde & Schwarz, at the mobile network testing booth, will create network engineering lab, outdoor drive test, operation center and a base station to demonstrate test solutions in their application environments.
