MWC 2017: Rohde & Schwarz presents its next generation T&M equipment for 5G, LTE-Advanced, IoT and IP security

Under the motto "Be ahead in testing technology", the company will showcase its latest test solutions for chipsets, components and devices as well as mobile networks to support the development of mobile technology for current and future standards up to 5G. From Enhanced Mobile Broadband to the Internet of Things, the test & measurement (T&M) specialist enables stable and secure connections for all types of wireless communications.

Rohde & Schwarz will be present at Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona with two booths in Hall 6. Under the motto "Be ahead in testing technology”, the device and infrastructure testing booth #6C40 will display solutions for chipsets, mobile devices and network infrastructure testing as well as cybersecurity. At the mobile network testing booth #6B50, Rohde & Schwarz and its subsidiary SwissQual, will display the latest developments in mobile network testing technology for applications such as benchmarking, network optimization, field services and service quality monitoring under the motto "More value out of your network".

Device and infrastructure testing (#6C40)

At its device and infrastructure testing booth, Rohde & Schwarz will display its latest T&M solutions for chipsets, devices and network components for today's LTE/LTE-Advanced and tomorrow's 5G standards. A large part of the booth will be devoted to IoT. Visitors will also be able to view test solutions for radiocommunications in automobiles and for secure IP communications.

Visions are turning into reality with 5G. So for the first time, Rohde & Schwarz is presenting 5G test solutions in the 28 GHz band. An R&S SMW200A will generate 5GTF candidate waveforms and an R&S FSW signal analyzer with an internal bandwidth of up to 1.2 GHz will analyze them. The new R&S NRPM OTA power measurement solution allows T&M specialists to precisely measure and calibrate the power of beamforming antennas and antenna arrays in the far field.

Rohde & Schwarz is one step ahead with LTE-Advanced as well. For RF tests on LTE-Advanced components, the R&S CMW500 already supports 5CC 4x4 MIMO transmissions with a data rate of up to 2 Gbit/s. The Internet of Things (IoT) exhibit will feature narrowband IoT application tests in line with the latest 3GPP Release 13 specifications, for example. Other solutions will be presented for measuring the battery lifetime of IoT components and embedded designs under realistic network conditions and for the new Bluetooth® 5 standard.

Mobile network testing (Hall 6/ B50)

At the mobile network testing booth, realistic measurement scenarios such as a network engineering lab, outdoor drive test, operation center and a base station will be recreated to demonstrate test solutions in their application environments. Of particular interest is the pioneering 5G network coverage demonstrator solution up to 28 GHz. The technically advanced range of solutions covering IoT and 4x4 MIMO to ViLTE and VoWiFI encompasses benchmarking, network optimization, video quality measurements, installation, maintenance and troubleshooting all designed to deliver more value out of the network.
