NB-IoT: The Need for Scanner Based Testing

NB-IoT, (Narrow Band Internet of Things), also known as Cat NB1, is a standard for connecting “things” to the internet through the cellular network. This is a standard focused on machine to machine communications. The range of applications are vast, with key applications including asset tracking, intrusion detection, utility meter reporting, smart parking areas, and…

LTE and Bluetooth® in-device coexistence with WLAN

This application note employs preliminary theoretical analysis and demonstrates how the problems of in-device coexistence can be measured. Exemplary, the effects of LTE and Bluetooth® traffic on the WLAN performance of a commercially available smartphone are examined. These examples will also enable the reader to design tests for complementary scenarios.

Narrowband Internet of Things Measurements

The Internet of Things (IoT) is considered the driving force of current and future wireless communications. In release 13, 3GPP has specified Narrowband-IoT (NB-IoT) as a new physical layer. This application note gives a short introduction to NB-IoT and shows the easy measurements with Rohde & Schwarz instruments.

Complimentary Poster: Narrowband Internet of Things

3GPP release 13 has specified a new radio interface, the Narrowband Internet of Things (NB-IoT). Tightly coupled with LTE, NB-IoT is optimized for machine type traffic. It is relatively simple by design, with an emphasis on cost reduction and minimal battery consumption. Please note that we only can ship to the U.S. and Canada at…
