LTE-A Base Station Performance Tests

3GPP TS36.141 defines conformance tests for EUTRA base stations (eNodeB). Release 14 (LTEAdvanced Pro) added several tests, such as those for enhanced Licensed Assisted Access (eLAA).

This application note describes how all required performance tests (TS36.141 Chapter 8) can be performed quickly and easily by using vector signal generators from Rohde & Schwarz.

Examples illustrate the manual operation. A free software program enables and demonstrates remote operation.

The LTE base station transmitter (Tx) tests (TS36.141 Chapter 6) are described in Application Note 1MA154.

The LTE base station receiver (Rx) tests (TS36.141 Chapter 7) are described in Application Note 1MA195.
