"Since my first day at the University of Zagreb, radio communications technologies have been in my blood”, says Gregor Tomic, who earned his master’s degree magna cum laude in electrical engineering and computing. Carrying out global projects in radio network optimization at Ericsson and consulting for the DACH region at Accenture stirred his blood even more and sharpened his focus further. As Product Manager for R&S ROMES4 and the network performance analyzer (NPA), Gregor blogs about 5G and NB-IoT.

Coverage and performance testing of 5G private networks

July 8, 2022 | by Gregor Tomic

Private networks are becoming more important in various industries that, however, still seems to be in the trial phase with 5G and various use cases. Our experience with recent measurement campaigns shows that we still have a long way to go to meet the targets for latency and throughput in high traffic networks. Read our story to get more information about how to test the quality of private 5G networks.

NB-IoT: How to find NB-IoT carriers in the spectrum (part 6)

November 21, 2018 | by Gregor Tomic

NB-IoT carriers are very difficult, if not impossible, to find. The Automatic Channel Detection (ACD) feature in R&S®ROMES4 does the job automatically. But, what makes finding and identifying NB-IoT carriers so difficult in the first place? And, what implementation modes are there, and how do they differ from one another?
