R&S CMX500 and R&S CMW500 5G communication testers from Rohde & Schwarz.

ETS-Lindgren integrates the Rohde & Schwarz CMX500 radio communication tester for 5G testing

  • ETS-Lindgren integrates the Rohde & Schwarz CMX500 radio communication tester to provide its customers with turnkey 5G test solutions.
  • The combination of the R&S CMX500 with ETS-Lindgren’s CTIA-compliant EMQuest Antenna Measurement software and regulatory-compliant TILE! emissions and immunity software provides an EMC/EMI and OTA (over the air) test solution for 5G communication equipment.

The CMX500 tester supports all 5G NR modes, including FR1 (less than 6 GHz) and FR2 (mmW, millimeter wave), non-standalone (NSA) and standalone (SA), for both FDDD and DRT. It operates seamlessly with the R&S CMW500 broadband radio tester designed for cellular (LTE, C-IoT, 3G, 2G) and wireless connection (WLAN, Bluetooth) testing. The combination of the CMX500 and CMW500 testers covers all major commercial wireless technologies.

“5G NR is one of many radio access technologies that need to be tested on the next generation of wireless devices,” said Jari Vikstedt, Director of Wireless Solutions at ETS-Lindgren. “The ability to upgrade an existing ETS-Lindgren Wireless OTA and EMC/EMI test system to support the 5G NR standard with the simple addition of a CMX500 tester provides our customers with the easiest and most cost-effective way to perform 5G tests.”
