App Note: 5G NR network measurements (in-field analysis) with R&S®TSMx6 mobile network scanners

This application note describes the highlights of real-time 5G NR analysis in pre-commercial 5G NR trials and early deployments (5G NR scanning use cases), the functionality of network scanners R&S®TSMx6 together with R&S®ROMES4, and how users will experience the added value network scanners.


How to test a 5G NR network?

With 5G NR network rollout clearly on the horizon, network operators worldwide are planning pre-commercial network trials in 2018 and 2019. New frequency bands, beamforming support and a wide flexibility of physical radio parameters in 5G NR increase the complexity and strengthen the need for accurate network coverage measurements to enable and verify correct 5G NR network planning and the rollout of base stations.

Be ahead in 5G. Turn visions into reality.

How to test a NB-IoT / LTE-M network?

Are narrowband Internet of Things (NB-IoT) and LTE-M just standard add-on to LTE? Not when you look at it from an optimization point of view. When it comes to optimization, networks for IoT applications pose a completely new coverage challenge and good network coverage is essential. Unlike humans, IoT installations, for example in basements, cannot change position to get a better signal.
