Testing LTE-Advanced (Rel.10)

This application note summarizes the Rohde & Schwarz test solutions for LTE-Advanced (Release 10) using Vector Signal Generators, Signal and Spectrum Analyzers and the Wideband Radio Communication Tester.

Higher Order MIMO Testing with the R&S®SMW200A Vector Signal Generator

Due to its outstanding performance the R&S®SMW200A vector signal generator is ideal for testing MIMO receivers in a vast variety of applications offering maximum usability at minimum form factor. It can generate up to eight antenna signals simultaneously in its digital baseband – all standard-compliant and with antenna-specific coding. In addition, it can simulate the…

LTE-A Base Station Transmitter Tests

3GPP TS36.141 defines conformance tests for EUTRA base stations (eNodeB). Release 13 (LTEAdvanced Pro) added several tests, especially for Narrowband Internet of Things (NB-IoT). This application note describes how all required transmitter (Tx) tests (TS36.141 Chapter 6) can be performed quickly and easily by using signal and spectrum analyzers from Rohde & Schwarz. A few…

LTE-A Base Station Performance Tests

3GPP TS36.141 defines conformance tests for EUTRA base stations (eNodeB). Release 12 (LTEAdvanced) added several tests, such as those for PUCCH format 2 and PUSCH with TTI bundling and enhanced HARQ pattern. This application note describes how all required performance tests (TS36.141 Chapter 8) can be performed quickly and easily by using vector signal generators…

1MA195: LTE-A Base Station Receiver Tests

3GPP TS36.141 defines conformance tests for EUTRA base stations (eNodeB). Release 12 (LTEAdvanced) added several tests, such as those for contiguous and non-contiguous multicarrier and/or carrier aggregation (CA) scenarios. This application note describes how all required receiver (Rx) tests (TS36.141 Chapter 7) can be performed quickly and easily by using vector signal generators from Rohde…

LTE-Advanced Technology Introduction

Although the commercialization of LTE technology began in end 2009, the technology is still being enhanced in order to meet ITU-Advanced requirements. This white paper summarizes these necessary improvements, which are known as LTE-Advanced.
