Rohde & Schwarz validates LTE test cases for the R&S®CMW500 wideband radio communication tester at GCF
Rohde & Schwarz is the first T&M equipment supplier to successfully validate LTE test cases with the Global Certification Forum (GCF). A first set of test cases of the 3GPP 36.523 specification were presented and approved for validation on the R&S®CMW500 wideband radio communication tester.
LTE is one of the most challenging and fastest-growing technologies in the field of mobile communications. It is crucial for the industry to have test instruments available that support the 3GPP defined test cases for LTE mobile phones.
Rohde & Schwarz gave the starting signal for LTE certifications by validating the first test cases at the GCF CAG#21 meeting in Sophia Antipolis, France. This is another milestone in the commercial roll-out of LTE networks.
“We are very proud to be the first T&M equipment manufacturer who can offer GCF certified test cases for LTE,” says Michael Altmann, Head of Product Management for Mobile Radio Testers at Rohde & Schwarz.
The R&S®CMW500 wideband radio communication tester is the universal tester for testing the air interface of wireless devices. It is a GCF- and PTCRB-approved platform for conformance tests in line with 3GPP HSPA+ and LTE test specifications. Due to the multitechnology support, it provides maximum return on investment, especially when running inter-RAT test cases. Automation of test campaigns and optional combination with RRM and RF conformance test systems allow flexible and efficient use of the test equipment.
Rohde & Schwarz offers a complete portfolio of test solutions for LTE, covering applications ranging from R&D to conformance testing and network deployment.
