CETECOM selects Rohde & Schwarz RF Conformance Test System for LTE Testing
The R&S©TS8980FTA from Rohde & Schwarz will assist CETECOM in deploying its LTE service portfolio
The scalable RF Conformance Test System is designed to cover all GCF and PTCRB Rel-8 RF test cases conforming with the 3GPP TS36.521-1 §6 thru §9 for LTE FDD and TDD modes. In addition to LTE (E-UTRA) conformance tests, tests cases for WCDMA will also be supported. Integration of HSPA+ is underway.
In addition to GCF and PTCRB certification testing, the R&S©TS8980FTA also offers the industry's broadest range of networkoperatorspecific conformance tests. The highly flexible R&S©TS8980 test platform enables early collaboration with major chipset and device vendors and network operators. This concept provides R&S©TS8980 users access to an unprecedented scope of RF conformance and Network Operator acceptance tests. Early availability of 3GPP -- and operatorspecific test cases -- helps R&S©TS8980 users radically reduce timetolaunch.
The RF Conformance Test System is a registered platform for GCF and PTCRB. It integrates a range of marketleading Rohde & Schwarz test instruments including the R&S©CMW500PT Protocol Conformance Tester, the industry's first LTE platform to offer validated conformance test cases.
In addition to pure LTE RF certification and Network acceptance, an optional and highly costeffective integration of the Rohde & Schwarz RRM (Radio Resource Management) platform is available. This allows the implementation of test cases according to 3GPP TS36.521-3. The RRM addon maximizes the usability of the new R&S©TS8980FTA RF Conformance Test System.
