Key facts

  • Automatic detection and demodulation of all cellular standards
  • Simultaneous technology-related and spectrum measurements
  • Voice, data and video testing (optional, smartphone based)
  • 5G NR signal demodulation down to –142 dBm (SCS 30 kHz)
  • Frequency coverage up to 30 GHz

5G NR site deployment – testing has never been so easy

Automatic detection, simultaneous multitechnology measurements

As soon as the operating bands are selected, the Rohde & Schwarz 5G site testing solution instantly detects the 5G and LTE signals on air and delivers detailed information about each of them: signal quality, power level, beam analysis, MIB and SIB content, spectrum and waterfall displays. 5G NR sites can be thoroughly tested. The 5G STS is an important tool for verifying NSA 5G sites by simultaneously measuring 5G and LTE. In combination with the QualiPoc Android, functional tests such as voice, data and video streaming make it possible to verify the service availability of the site.

Features & benefits

High sensitivity

High sensitivity

The sensitivity of the test instrument determines the number of signals that can be correctly identified and demodulated. The Rohde & Schwarz 5G site testing solution can detect and analyze signals down to –142 dBm. And line-of-sight is not required to measure. An omnidirectional antenna can be used to widen the reception of signals (compared to the limited reception angle of a directional antenna).

High sensitivity

Automatic channel detection and demodulation

Faster setup and full overview of all networks

After simply selecting the frequency bands to be measured, the automatic channel detection feature does the rest: it detects all active channels and provides an overview of their technology, center frequency, channel number and network operator(*). No more channel settings are needed. In addition, the last measured power of the carrier is represented by an opaque spectrum signal in the background, offering a quick indication of the power levels.

Simultaneous multitechnology measurements

Increasing efficiency

In non-standalone 5G NR deployments, network settings for the 5G network are done in LTE, therefore it is especially helpful to be able to perform measurements in LTE and 5G in parallel. The 5G site testing solution supports simultaneous measurements on all cellular technologies plus spectrum and waterfall displays. Measurement displays are easily customized to provide an instant overview of all required parameters on the tablet or smartphone screen.

Simultaneous multitechnology measurements

Rich 5G NR measurement set

5G SSB measurements help verify coverage and the beamforming effect. The 5G STS measures 5G NR synchronization signal blocks (SSB) and decodes the PBCH/MIB content of each detected SSB. Power, signal-to-noise and interference measurements for each PCI and SSB/beam index deliver a complete set of data to verify the transmission of each SSB/beam. All subcarrier spacings and transmission cases defined for sub6 and mmWave bands up to 30 GHz are supported.

Functional tests

During the final stage of a new deployment or maintenance routine, the quality of site services must be tested. The QualiPoc Android can conduct a customizable sequence of voice, data and video tests. Each cell sector and all carrier frequencies are tested using the advanced forcing functions. The detailed results are displayed on the telephone, enabling the technician to immediately optimize the site or trigger additional improvement actions.

Portable and easy to use

Thanks to its system architecture, the 5G site testing solution is very easy to carry and operate. The OTA tester remains inside the soft carrying bag where it is protected from all weather conditions, while the user operates the instrument from the tablet or smartphone. The GUI is Android based, which allows the user to switch from one measurement to the other as easy as with an app.
