- Rohde & Schwarz conducted the first field tests of network performance and quality from the end-user’s perspective on a live 5G NR network using commercially available 5G NR devices such as the Samsung S10 5G.
- The purpose of these tests was to verify that the performance of the 5G network meets the technical requirements and provides the required quality of experience to the end user.
Rohde & Schwarz mobile network test solutions for engineering, on-site acceptance, optimization, benchmarking and monitoring offer the possibility to perform such measurements with commercially available smartphones.
The ultimate test of the proper functioning of a 5G NR network is to verify that the required quality of experience (QoE) is delivered to subscribers by using real 5G devices in live networks. Rohde & Schwarz’s mobile network testing solutions now support commercially available 5G devices such as the Samsung S10 5G, Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 5G, Oppo Reno 5G and LG V50 ThinQ 5G.
Rohde & Schwarz engineers conducted the first field tests in real 5G networks and measured the key parameters of quality of service (QoS) and quality of experience (QoE).
Operators wishing to test the quality and performance of 5G NR mobile networks using commercially available user equipment (UE) can now do so with Rohde & Schwarz mobile network test solutions such as the R&S QualiPoc smartphone optimiser, the R&S ROMES4 universal network measurement software or the R&S SmartBenchmarker network benchmarking software.
These solutions cover all the necessary tests: video streaming quality and application testing providing complete and detailed IP and RF data using a phone, RF testing, and voice and data testing with a standard commercial device with open diagnostic ports.
