Rohde & Schwarz is initiating 5G New Radio (5G NR) network measurements with the first commercially available 5G NR network measurement solution. This will allow 5G network ecosystem users and regulators to measure the 5G NR network coverage more precisely. Users will also verify beamforming and interworking operation between 5G and other technologies.
The purpose is to overcome more demanding and complex air interface challenges and to deliver the commercial and technical benefits offered by 5G to their customers. It consists of a network scanner with matching 5G NR scanning software and the R&S ROMES4 drive test software suite.
The solution has been put through pre-commercial 5G NR network trials conducted by Rohde & Schwarz in support of a tier 1 operator and a global 5G NR infrastructure supplier.
“By launching the world’s first commercially available 5G NR network measurement solution, once again, we at Rohde & Schwarz prove our commitment to turn visions into reality,” said Dietmar Vahldiek, Executive Vice President Monitoring and Network Testing at Rohde & Schwarz. “We enable our customers to be ahead in 5G by achieving superior 5G NR performance in all phases of the network lifecycle.”
The company will unveil its new 5G NR network measurement solution to the public for the first time at Mobile World Congress Americas in Los Angeles from September 12 to 14, 2018, hall South, stand S.2814.
