Rohde & Schwarz’s TS8980 Validates 5G RF Conformance Tests

November 13, 2019 Alix Paultre

The Global Certification Forum GCF and PTCRB certification organization have accepted first test case validations in various FR1 and LTE band combinations using the TS8980FTA-3A 5G RF conformance test system from Rohde & Schwarz. This validation process also ensures that the updated version of the R&S TS8980 has officially been accepted by GCF and PTCRB as suitable for the 5G RF requirements described in the 3GPP specifications.

The R&S CMX500 radio communication tester adds 5G NR signaling functionality to the R&S TS8980. The test solution now supports RF conformance test cases for all radio access technologies from GSM, WCDMA, LTE through 5G, and is an established tool for consistent RF tests from R&D to conformance testing. Users who already have a previous version of the well-established R&S TS8980 test system can upgrade to 5G RF testing by adding the new R&S CMX500 as an extension box.
