R&S CMX500 5G One-Box Signaling TesterRohde & Schwarz provided Nothing Technology with the R&S CMX500 one-box tester, which combines flexibility and superior performance in a single instrument. Users test 5G mobile devices and chipsets in all possible 5G NR network deployments and frequency ranges, including FR1, FR2 and LTE bands.

Nothing could speed up testing times and time to market for its Phone by using the R&S CMsequencer shuffler wizard to effectively sweep through the UE FR1 bands/channels and the supporting band combinations, providing throughput and VoLTE/VoNR measurements for each case.

This ensured that the mobile device performs as intended in real-world scenarios for each supported band combination. This enabled the expected device experience for the end user when it was launched in July 2022.

Sam Lee, Head of Mobile Software at Nothing Technology, said: “R&S CMX500 one-box tester helped us bring our Phone to the market, while making sure it meets all compliance and performance requirements for a flawless user experience.”

Christoph Pointner, Senior Vice President Mobile Radio Testers at Rohde & Schwarz, said: “Whether for newcomers or experienced engineers, our automated approach in R&S CMX500 one-box tester makes 5G testing easier.”
