Rohde & Schwarz demonstrates first signal generation and analysis solution for 5G New Radio at MWC 2018

The first 5G New Radio (NR) specifications were just released by 3GPP in December. Rohde & Schwarz is underscoring its leading position in 5G testing by developing the industry’s first dedicated test solutions for 5G NR downlink and uplink signals for base stations, UE and component testing in line with 3GPP Release 15. At Mobile World Congress 2018, Rohde & Schwarz will display a respective setup consisting of the R&S FSW signal and spectrum analyzer and the R&S SMW200A vector signal generator.

The test setup for the 5G NR consists of the R&S FSW signal and spectrum analyzer and the R&S SMW200A vector signal generator.

Rohde & Schwarz will introduce two new dedicated options for generating and analyzing 5G NR signals to test base stations, UE and 5G components such as power amplifier. The R&S SMW-K144 5G NR signal generation option will enable users to generate signals for 5G NR downlink and uplink in line with 3GPP Release 15, specifically the 3GPP TS 38.211, 38.212, 38.213 and 38.214 specifications for the NR physical layer and transport layer. The R&S FSW-K144 5G NR signal analysis option verifies the implementation of the 5G NR downlink signals. Developers will be able to test compliance with the 3GPP standard, enabling them to validate for instance 5G base stations in ways that cannot be achieved with general-purpose solutions on the market.

Users benefit from the outstanding test and measurement capabilities of the R&S SMW200A vector signal generator and the R&S FSW signal and spectrum analyzer. The R&S SMW200A is the only generator that offers a 2 GHz fully calibrated wideband solution up to 40 GHz in a single device. The intuitive operating concept and clever help functions facilitate the configuration of complex signal scenarios such as 5G NR, which takes place directly on the instrument.

Equipped with the new 5G NR signal analysis option, the R&S FSW supports sub-6 GHz and mmWave signals with different subcarrier spacing and carrier bandwidths. Adding the optional internal analysis bandwidth of up to 2 GHz (R&S FSW-B2001) allows R&D users to investigate wideband signals in detail without the need for an external digitizer.

The two new 5G NR options extend the Rohde & Schwarz support for 5G test and measurement. The setup is on display at Mobile World Congress 2018 in Barcelona at booth 6C40 in hall 6. The R&S SMW-K144 5G NR signal generation option and the R&S FSW-K144 5G NR downlink signal analysis option are due to be available by April 2018.
