ConRes (Continental Resources) offers high volume 5G mobile device testing with Rohde & Schwarz equipment

Uniting the worlds of 4G and 5G, the R&S®CMX500 radio communication tester delivers a smooth upgrade path from LTE to 5G NR device testing.

Columbia, MD, August 3, 2020 — ConRes has expanded its high volume test services with the Rohde & Schwarz CMX500 and CMW500 radio communication testers for 5G device testing and 4G/LTE device testing respectively. Designed for signaling and non-signaling tests in all 5G frequency bands, including sub 6 GHz (FR1) and mmWave (FR2) frequency bands, the R&S®CMX500 seamlessly integrates with the R&S®CMW500 to simplify the testing roadmap from 4G/LTE to 5G. As 4G/LTE and 5G will coexist for years to come, the combination of the R&S®CMX500 and R&S®CMW500 radio communication testing platform eliminates risk and future-proofs volume service and repair testing systems.

In high volume testing of mobile phones, test time and reliability are critical. Measurements must reflect real use case scenarios to ensure impactful, meaningful data that yields accurate failure rates. False failure rates slow repair process and slow the time-to-market. This is especially critical by the introduction of new technologies with new behavior like NSA mode in 5G, which operates with an LTE anchor.

When used together, the R&S CMX500 and CMW500 provide a test platform capable of testing 2G, 3G, WLAN 802.11ac and ax, LTE Release 8-15 including VoLTE and 5G NR devices in both standalone (SA) and non-standalone (NSA), TDD and FDD modes. ConRes is taking advantage of these capabilities to cover the latest 5G RF test requirements combined with existing test plans.

“Continuity with established testing methodologies and toolsets guarantees an easy transition from LTE to 5G. The R&S®CMX500 radio communication tester combined with the industry standard CMW500 is the perfect solution for high volume phone testing,”. Said Jim Keady, VP of ConRes. And with the same user interface, there is no need for line personnel and technicians to learn something new, just a matter of adding the R&S®CMX500 for 5G signaling along with the latest CMW500 hardware,”
