5G NR Carrier Acceptance Tests

Conformance approval is one of the most important steps to bringing mobile devices to the market. With the introduction of 5G NR, the sheer number of test cases grows exponentially due the huge number of supported band combinations, deployment options and evolving standards. Major 5G operators ask for additional carrier acceptance tests to ensure cellular devices function properly on their networks. With an R&S®CMX500 based test system, Rohde & Schwarz supports carrier acceptance tests like PQA, NPT and LBS in 5G FR2. In all applications, the extremely compact R&S®ATS800R CATR chamber is used for the required over-the-air measurements. The video shows an carrier acceptance test case: Heat dissipation of a mobile device in relation to data throughput.


Testing voice services in 5G NR - (VoNR)

The R&S®CMW500 wideband radio communication tester in combination with the R&S CMX500 5G communication tester comes with everything needed to test 5G voice services (VoNR) on mobile devices. It features an internal IMS server, enabling registering of 5G devices and setting up the required bearers and QoS flows necessary for voice services. The virtual user equipment (UE) emulation, allowing for establishing mobile originated and mobile-terminated end-to-end voice calls in loopback mode for fast and easy VoNR functional tests. The user can select between the supported codecs, such as EVS and AMR-WB or AMR-NB with their respective codec rates. To test audio quality during a call, an analyzer is required. It must be able to generate and analyze audio waveforms using the latest methodologies according to PESQ or POLQA, whereby POLQA is used for audio quality measurements during VoNR and VoLTE calls. To do so, the R&S®CMW500 & R&S®CMX500 setup can be extended by an audio analyzer.
