Mobile test summit 2023

Rohde & Schwarz Mobile Test Summit returns to Munich as a live, in-person event!

Join us for two days of insights and discussions on mobile device and infrastructure testing. Network with fellow professionals and meet subject matter experts, technology specialists and industry leaders in person.

5G is now reality; O-RAN networks are emerging; Wi-Fi 7 is ready for the rollout; satellite communication is enabled on smartphones; and 6G research is already in a full swing.

That makes it high time to talk about testing challenges across the whole mobile ecosystem and in all stages: from R&D and verification to certification and manufacturing.

We have compiled the most interesting trends in mobile device and infrastructure testing, touching on the latest developments such as 5G NTN, 5G RedCap, mission critical services, Wi-Fi 7, O-RAN and the application of AI/ML to optimize radio communications. This event will shed light on all these topics with the help of industry experts and Rohde & Schwarz technology and testing specialists.

Key topics

Preparing for the next wave of 5G

Preparing for the next wave of 5G

We will explore upcoming 5G features and demonstrate novel test solutions. Key topics include: reduced capability and complexity (RedCap), non-terrestrial networks (NTN) and adaptations for mission-critical services (MCX).

Ensure the ultimate broadband experience

Ensure the ultimate broadband experience

We will uncover the latest broadband technologies required for delivering the ultimate broadband experience anytime and anywhere. Key topics: 5G eMBB, Wi-Fi 7 and fixed wireless access (FWA).

Making open virtualized networks a reality

Making open virtualized networks a reality

Our experts will explain O-RAN-based networks, elaborating on the importance of testing and certification to ensure interoperability in the emerging diverse and open ecosystem.

Unlocking the full potential of densification

Unlocking the full potential of densification

We will delve into the topic of network densification with small cells as well as how to improve network efficiency with advanced MIMO and beamforming schemes, together with related test solutions.
