March 2, 2017 -- Rohde & Schwarz, a supplier of test and measurement solutions to the wireless industry, in cooperation with Qualcomm Technologies, has successfully implemented a wide range of NB-IoT tests that can be used to verify the Qualcomm Technologies' MDM9206 global Cat M1/Cat NB-1 dual-mode LTE modem. By using the R&S CMW-KU300 NB-IoT MLAPI scenarios and the R&S CMW-KR313 3GPP Rel. 13 C-IoT protocol test enabler on a single R&S CMW500 radio communication tester, engineers can test their IoT devices based on the MDM9206 LTE modem under realistic conditions by attaching and establishing a real-time connection with the simulated network and then testing relevant signalling and RF scenarios related to the 3GPP Release 13 specification.
Rohde & Schwarz will showcase this new capability at this year's Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona, Spain at booth #6C40 in Hall 6. The MDM9206 LTE modem demonstration will utilize the R&S CMW500 wideband radio communication tester, emulating a LTE-Advanced network with IP Multimedia System (IMS) server capabilities. Utilizing the MDM9206 LTE modem, the demonstration begins with a network attachment and establishment of a comprehensive data session. Using the CMW-KM300 NB-IoT Tx-Measurement personality during an established NB-IoT call, RF parametric tests to evaluate RF-spectrum, output-power and error vector magnitude (EVM) provide unique insight to the RF performance of the IoT-device. The R&S CMW-KU300 and R&S CMW-KM300 options for the R&S CMW500 will soon be available from Rohde & Schwarz.
