5G NR testing – are you ready for the 5G challenges?

5G NR deployment is in full swing creating numerous opportunities for new devices and infrastructure equipment

5G will change the way we communicate. The next generation of mobile networks, 5G, introduces a paradigm shift towards a user and application centric technology framework, with the goal of flexibly supporting three important use case families:

  • Enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB)
  • Massive machine type communications (mMTC)
  • Ultra-reliable, low latency communications (URLLC)

5G NR is the first communications standard designed to support a wide variety of consumer and industry applications. 3GPP release 15 laid the foundation for 5G NR by introducing new, flexible numerology, advanced channel coding and modulation schemes. Enabling wider channel bandwidths and extended carrier aggregation schemes while also extending frequencies into the millimeterwave range make more radio resources available.

Non-terrestrial networks (NTN)

Non-terrestrial networks (NTN) enable global access to services like mobile data, voice calls and messaging, regardless of geographical location or terrain.

Our 5G testing experts

Reiner Stuhlfauth, Technology Manager, Rohde & Schwarz

The underlying technologies and technical solutions of 5G New Radio are complex. To ensure interoperability and reliable functioning, all aspects must be thoroughly tested long before 5G makes its way from the lab to the field. This includes testing individual components such as antennas, complete base stations, end devices and also the quality of services in a mobile communications network.

Meik Kottkamp, Technology Manager, Rohde & Schwarz

At Rohde & Schwarz, we have enabled our customers to develop and optimize their products all the way from 2G, the first digital generation, to today's commercialized 4G networks. We support them during the ongoing transition to 5G with our extensive RF knowledge in the mmWave spectrum and industry-leading expertise in over-the-air antenna performance and radiocommunications testing. We are looking forward to turning 5G NR into reality with our customers.

Andreas Roessler, Technology Manager, Rohde & Schwarz

With 5G, the traditional hunt for higher data rates is facing new verticals that call for ultra-reliable communications with the lowest possible latencies. At Rohde & Schwarz, we help our customers understand the fundamentals of this new technology and the challenges it brings for testing. Our goal is to continue to be a valuable partner for our customers by providing expertise and solutions that meet specific test requirements.
