R&S CMWflexx addresses the broad chipset and device testing needs for LTE-A/Pro and 5G

Built upon the R&S CMW500, the most successful family of radio communication testers ever sold, R&S CMWflexx is the first test platform offering carrier aggregation for up to 8 carriers combined with 8x4 MIMO for protocol, RF and data performance.

As the platform of choice for testing mobile devices supporting 3GPP releases 8 through 15, the R&S CMWflexx provides the most flexible mobile device test solution in terms of technologies and test applications supported leading to the lowest total cost of ownership. Leveraging R&S CMW500s, the R&S CMWflexx helps design and validation engineers meet the diverse needs placed on today’s mobile devices as the market readies itself for 5G. Supporting carrier aggregation (8CC), higher orders of MIMO (4x4, 8x4), complex modulation (256QAM), unlicensed spectrum (LAA), and more, the R&S CMWflexx is the tool of choice when it comes to flexibility in addressing today’s quickly evolving mobile applications and wireless standards.

The R&S CMWflexx solution typically consists of two, three or four R&S CMW500 and a R&S CMW controller unit (R&S CMWC) to enable MIMO/carrier aggregation configurations with up to 32 individual streams, far beyond what is being commercially deployed today. And by leveraging the R&S CMW500, the upgrade path to a R&S CMWflexx is very easy and affordable given the huge number of R&S CMW500 radio communication testers in use today.

Anton Messmer, Vice President Mobile Radio Testers at Rohde & Schwarz, said: “The highly flexible and configurable R&S CMWflexx solution can support virtually any commercial wireless technology and nearly all test applications. Not only does the R&S CMWflexx allow customers to take advantage of hardware they may already own, but it also helps future-proof their investment with a clear strategy in place to support 3GPP release 15 LTE features and an upgrade path to 5G NR NSA.”

Rohde & Schwarz will feature the R&S CMWflexx at Mobile World Congress Americas 2018 in Los Angeles from September 12 to 14, 2018, hall South, stand S.2814.
