Rohde & Schwarz demonstrates LTE-A Pro user equipment testing with enhanced carrier aggregation (eCA) from 3GPP Rel. 13. The R&S®CMWflexx test solution, based on two R&S®CMW500 radio communication testers, can generate up to eight carriers in parallel in the downlink (8 DL CA) and up to four carriers in the uplink. Depending on which MIMO mode is enabled, a throughput of up to 2 GBit/s can be reached by simulating eight 20 MHz 256QAM carriers in the DL.
