5G Site Testing Solution from Rohde & Schwarz for gNodeB site acceptance, troubleshooting

February 11, 2020 Perry Cohen

Rohde & Schwarz introduced the 5G Site Testing Solution (5G STS) that provides an integrated package of test equipment that combines the functional, RF, and signaling tests for 5G installation and troubleshooting.

Site acceptance and troubleshooting of each new cell site must test new capabilities, such as beamforming and 5G/LTE dual connectivity. A verification is needed to assure the correct installation, performance, and the required quality of service (QoS) is delivered to end users.

The 5G STS is comprised of the R&S TSMA6 receiver; R&S TSME30DC downconverter; the handheld network troubleshooter, QualiPoc Android, and the R&S Cable Rider ZPH analyzer.

The 5G STS benefits field service engineers from Automated Channel Detection (ACD) to automatically configure the receiver with the correct measurement settings rather than to manually enter them into the instrument. The solution is also significantly faster and more sensitive than a traditional spectrum analyzer, according to the company. It can run 5G and LTE tests simultaneously, and executes all necessary tests for efficient 5G site verification and troubleshooting in one integrated package.
