Rohde & Schwarz Presents CTIA Authorized 5G mmWave Test System

The certification of mobile devices against common standards is one of the most important cornerstones of ensuring their interoperability.

Rohde & Schwarz has cooperated with CTIA organization to authorize the first multiple angles of arrival (multi-AoA) test system for CTIA OTA performance certification. The solution is based on the successful conformance test system R&S TS8980 while also leveraging the R&S CMX500 5G tester together with the R&S ATS1800M mmWave (FR2) chamber from the advanced chamber portfolio from Rohde & Schwarz.

CTIA5G NR mmWave technology will witness the adoption of new, complex technologies such as beamforming, sophisticated antenna array systems and new usable communications spectrum. For FR2, every device will have to be tested over the air (OTA), without any cable connections.

Many advanced 5G NR applications also rely on ultra-high data rates and ultra-low latencies. Both are only accessible in FR2. The test solution from Rohde & Schwarz is tailored to address these requirements and features. Certification by CTIA is the door-opener for validating 5G devices including FR2 frequencies for device manufacturers and network operators in the US, and a recognized stamp of approval worldwide.

The certification of mobile devices against common standards is one of the most important cornerstones of ensuring their interoperability.

Rohde & Schwarz is the first test and measurement supplier authorized by the CTIA to supply these certification tests in a 5G FR2 test system that also offers full multi-AoA capabilities. Multi-AoA is critical for verifying the performance of mobile devices in the mmWave space, as radio waves at these high frequencies (e.g. 28 GHz) suffer from high path loss and therefore need to be focused in narrow beams that are challenging to find, track and hand over while moving
