LTE-A Base Station Transmitter Tests

3GPP TS36.141 defines conformance tests for EUTRA base stations (eNodeB). Release 14 added several tests, especially for enhanced License Assisted Accsess (eLAA).

This application note describes how all required transmitter (Tx) tests (TS36.141 Chapter 6) can be performed quickly and easily by using signal and spectrum analyzers from Rohde & Schwarz. A few tests additionally require signal generators from Rohde & Schwarz.

Examples illustrate the manual operation. A free software program enables and demonstrates remote operation.

The LTE base station receiver (Rx) tests (TS36.141 Chapter 7) are described in Application Note 1MA195.

The LTE base station performance (Px) tests (TS36.141 Chapter 8) are described in Application Note 1MA162.
