How to test a 5G NR network?

With 5G NR network rollout clearly on the horizon, network operators worldwide are planning pre-commercial network trials in 2018 and 2019. New frequency bands, beamforming support and a wide flexibility of physical radio parameters in 5G NR increase the complexity and strengthen the need for accurate network coverage measurements to enable and verify correct 5G NR network planning and the rollout of base stations.

How to test a NB-IoT / LTE-M network?

Are narrowband Internet of Things (NB-IoT) and LTE-M just standard add-on to LTE? Not when you look at it from an optimization point of view. When it comes to optimization, networks for IoT applications pose a completely new coverage challenge and good network coverage is essential. Unlike humans, IoT installations, for example in basements, cannot change position to get a better signal.

How to test a MIMO network?

Operators are counting on the LTE feature 4x4 MIMO to meet the incessant need for more capacity that subscribers demand because they are jamming networks with data traffic. With the increasing commercial availability of 4x4 MIMO capable smartphones, operators can now exploit the higher spectral efficiency and capacity of this antenna technology.

How to test voice quality?

Voice is still a very important service for end users. In addition to new competition from OTT voice services, the emergence of new voice codecs and complex network technology make measuring end-user voice quality more challenging. As co-inventor of POLQA, the standard for measuring listening quality, Rohde & Schwarz Mobile Network Testing offers the best voice quality test solution.

How to test video quality?

More than 60 per cent of the traffic in mobile networks comes from video streaming services – video on demand and live video. And the most popular video services today are over-the-top (OTT) services such as YouTube, Netflix, Hulu, etc. To accurately test and measure the quality of experience (QoE) of these third-party applications, you need adequate test setups for those specific use cases.
