Rohde & Schwarz verifies 5G NR performance and QoE using commercially released smartphones in live 5G networks
MUNICH, GERMANY—The ultimate test of a complete 5G NR network's successful operation is to verify that the required quality of experience (QoE) is delivered to subscribers by using real 5G devices in live networks. Rohde & Schwarz mobile network testing solutions support now commercially available 5G devices such as the Samsung S10 5G, Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 5G, Oppo Reno 5G and the LG V50 ThinQ 5G. Rohde & Schwarz engineers have conducted their first field tests in live 5G networks and measured key quality of service (QoS) and quality of experience (QoE) parameters.Operators wishing to test the quality and performance of 5G NR mobile networks using commercially available UEs can do so now using Rohde & Schwarz mobile network testing solutions such as the R&S QualiPoc smartphone-based optimizer, R&S ROMES4 universal network measurement software or R&S SmartBenchmarker network benchmarking software. These solutions cover the full range of tests: video streaming quality and App testing providing full detailed IP and RF trace data using a rooted phone, testing RF, and voice and data testing with a standard commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) device with open diagnostic ports. 5G NR network test solutions from Rohde & Schwarz are showcased at 5G World 2019 in London, June 12-13, at booth 5G401, the flagship event of London Tech Week. Visit 5G World 2019 to discover how Rohde & Schwarz is leading the development of test solutions that accelerate the adoption of 5G and ensure the network performance and user QoE including device testing in FR1 and FR2, 5G NR network coverage and operation testing and intelligent QoE analytics.For more information, visit the exhibition booth or go to https://www.rohde-schwarz.com/mnt-5g and the MNT blog at https://blog.mobile-network-testing.com.
