Mobile World Congress 2021 is set to return to the shores of the Mediterranean from June 28 to July 1, 2021 and test and measurement specialist, Rohde & Schwarz, is preparing to show off its product line both live and virtually. Their theme will be “Enabling mobile connectivity – today & beyond,” showcasing a wide variety of test innovations for 5G mobile devices, infrastructure equipment and mobile networks, plus solutions for private networks and automotive connectivity.
The company will present early 6G technology in a two-way approach: Live at the Fira Gran Via in Barcelona, in hall 3, booth 3K30, and with supporting virtual activities on a dedicated webpage called Rohde & Schwarz Signals, which will go online for MWC21.
At MWC21, Rohde & Schwarz is demonstrating its test solutions for 5G for the entire ecosystem, from chipsets and devices to infrastructure and networks, across the complete lifecycle, from development and conformance to production, deployment and operation.
The virtual and tradeshow highlights revolve around the future-proof solution for 5G NR device testing, the R&S CMX500 radio communication tester. At MWC21, it will demonstrate enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB) end-to-end tests achieving extremely high throughput using eight component carriers in FR1 and FR2 using 256QAM modulation.
Another demo will showcase 5G voice over NR (VoNR) voice services. Carrier acceptance tests in the FR2 millimeter frequency bands, using Over-the-air (OTA) measurements in the extremely compact CATR antenna test system R&S ATS800R will be on display, as well. For infrastructure tests of advanced wireless components used for instance in 5G NR base stations, Rohde & Schwarz showcases its duo of an R&S SMM100A vector signal generator and R&S FSVA3000 signal and spectrum analyzer, bringing laboratory performance and matching RF characteristics to midrange test instruments, ideal for mass market applications.
From its mobile network testing portfolio, Rohde & Schwarz presents solutions for 5G NR site acceptance and site deployment as well as network engineering, optimization and troubleshooting. Visitors can learn about the successful R&S TSMx drive and walk test scanner family offering simultaneous measurements of 3GPP multi-standard networks. The ultracompact scanners already cover FR1 and FR2 frequency ranges and are used by operators of 5G networks worldwide for network optimization applications.
For network benchmarking, the R&S Freerider 4 backpack supporting up to 12 test mobile phones is on display. The collected data can be analyzed with SmartAnalytics, providing operators with QoE insights into their network’s performance.
