Brief description

The R&S®CMW500 wideband radio communication tester is the universal test platform for RF integration and protocol development. It is available as the R&S®CMW500 callbox and the R&S®CMW500 protocol tester. The R&S®CMW500 includes a fully integrated end-to-end data solution that permits comprehensive IP throughput and quality measurements. Thanks to the internal fading simulator, it is easy to perform tests under realistic propagation conditions. The R&S®CMW500 can be used in all phases – from product development to production to service. It is the solution with the widest range of supported technologies.

Features & benefits

Network emulation

RF Tests under realistic conditions

When developing wireless devices, it is essential to test the communications interface under realistic network conditions. The R&S®CMW emulates the base station for all major cellular technologies from LTE to GSM and in addition wireless connectivity like WLAN and Bluetooth.
