Key facts

  • Uplink/downlink FDD or TDD signals in line with 3GPP Release 8 to 15
  • LTE, NB-IoT, sidelink (D2D, C-V2X) physical layers and features
  • Real-time HARQ feedback, timing adjustment and timing advance 
  • Test case wizard for easy test setup in line with 3GPP TS 36.141
  • Logging of intermediate results from the signal generation chain

LTE, LTE Advanced and LTE Advanced Pro signal generation

The LTE software options generate standard-conformant FDD or TDD signals in line with 3GPP Release 8 to 15 directly on the instrument or on the desktop using R&S®WinIQSIM2TM. The options support all uplink, downlink and sidelink channel bandwidths and physical channels of LTE and NB-IoT, including channel coding and scrambling. An intuitive GUI, context-sensitive help menu, presets for downlink test models, uplink FRCs and a graphical timeplan of the configured signals all contribute to a fast and efficient workflow. Intermediate results of the signal generation chain can be easily logged to help facilitate debugging. Furthermore, a test case wizard ensures easy setup of base station conformance tests in line with 3GPP TS 36.141.

Features & benefits

Supports all physical signals and channels

Flexibly configure LTE, NB-IoT and sidelink physical layer

The LTE options implement the physical layer in line with 3GPP Release 8 to 15. The options support all downlink, uplink and sidelink physical channels and all specified channel bandwidths and modulation schemes such as 1024QAM, along with important physical layer features such as channel coding, scrambling, multiplexing of data and control information. This provides standard-conformant signals for testing components, modules, receivers and base stations.

MIMO, carrier aggregation and multiple users

Easily configure up to 8-layer MIMO and aggregate up to 5 carriers

The LTE options provide full MIMO and transmit diversity support with flexible LTE antenna port mapping in line with 3GPP Release 8 to 15. Intra-carrier and inter-carrier aggregation of up to five component carriers can be configured, including mixed TDD/FDD CA in uplink and cross-carrier scheduling. Up to four scheduled users in downlink and up to eight users in uplink can be configured for realistic receiver tests.

Test case wizard for easy setup of BS tests

The test case wizard supports the configuration of test signals in line with 3GPP TS 36.141, required for base station conformance and performance  tests. It offers a selection of predefined settings for wanted and interfering signals based on defined test cases. In addition, presets and predefined settings for downlink test models and uplink fixed reference channels enable easy set up of test signals for testing components and base stations.

Graphical signal evaluation

Graphical signal monitoring of virtually any point 

In addition to a convenient display of the configured resource allocation over time, various graphical displays support fast and easy signal configuration or evaluations to indicate resource allocation conflicts. Graphical signal monitoring is also provided in real time. It can be configured to display power spectrum, I and Q vs. time, vector diagram, CCDF and more.

Tailored for base station tests

Real-time HARQ feedback support

The LTE closed-loop BS test option enables test engineers to generate dynamically changing LTE test signals as required. This allows HARQ feedback and uplink timing adjustment tests in line with LTE base station test specification 3GPP TS 36.141 (Chapter 8). Simulated UEs can respond in real time to HARQ feedback (ACK/NACK) and timing adjustment commands from the base station.

Supports design flow optimization

Log files for design verification and enhanced debugging

Logging points are provided to capture the intermediate results from the signal processing chain, including forward error correction, which can be stored in either bit stream or I/Q sample files. This enables designers to verify their own receiver and transmitter software implementations of the LTE physical layer and to obtain insights to perform enhanced debugging.
