Under the motto "Be ahead in testing technology", Rohde & Schwarz will showcase its latest test solutions for chipsets, components and devices as well as radio networks in line with current and future standards up to 5G. The test and measurement company will host visitors on two stands in Hall 6 at Mobile World Congress 2017. The main stand #6C40 will display solutions for device and infrastructure testing as well as cybersecurity under the motto "Be ahead in testing technology".
The second stand #6B50, which will be shared by Rohde & Schwarz and its subsidiary SwissQual, will display the company's latest developments in mobile network testing under the motto "More value out of your network". It addresses network operators/providers, regulatory authorities and field test service providers.
At its main 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 28GHz band.
An R&S SMW200A will generate 5GTF candidate waveforms and an R&S FSW signal analyser with an internal bandwidth of up to 1.2GHz will analyse 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.
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.
