Cooper General Global Services, a leading wireless device repair and refurbishment company, has chosen the R&S CMX500 and R&S CMW500 wideband radio communication testers from Rohde & Schwarz to support 4G/LTE and 5G device repair and refurbishment. Cooper General selected the R&S CMX500 and R&S CMW500 to offer turnkey 5G device testing to its customers. The test platforms offer continuity with established testing methodologies and toolsets to guarantee an easy transition from LTE to 5G.

The R&S CMX500 was designed to meet all of the diverse testing needs of 5G with a single solution, including sub 6 GHz (FR1) and mmWave (FR2) frequency bands. The R&S CMW500 wideband radio communication tester is the industry standard for cellular (LTE, C-IoT, 3G, 2G) and connectivity (WLAN, Bluetooth®) testing. When used together, the R&S CMX500 and R&S CMW500 test platforms provide complete coverage of all major commercial wireless technologies, thus streamlining the transition from 4G/LTE to 5G. Cooper General is taking advantage of these capabilities to cover the latest 5G RF test requirements combined with existing test plans.

Carlos L. Laffitte, VP of Business Development at Cooper General Global Services, said: “As the industry continues to shift to 5G, 4G/LTE will not be replaced or forgotten. These technologies will coexist for many years, and the combination of the R&S CMX500 and R&S CMW500 wideband radio communication testers solidifies our testing needs by enabling us to service both 4G/LTE and 5G devices. Partnering with Rohde & Schwarz, an industry leader in 5G testing, expands our capabilities and allows us to offer our customers the level of service they require and expect."

Fernando Schmitt, Product Manager at Rohde & Schwarz, said: “The R&S CMX500 provides a simple and cost-effective way for customers to upgrade existing LTE test systems for current and future 5G NR requirements. With the same user interface, there is no need for users to learn something new, it’s just a matter of adding the R&S CMX500 for 5G signaling along with the latest R&S CMW500 hardware.”
